Joanne Marie Smith, 87, loving sister, wife, aunt, grandmother and
great-grandmother passed away peacefully at her home on Friday, February 4th, 2022 surrounded by her beloved children.
Joanne Marie was born in Springville, New York on September 7, 1934 the daughter of late
Charlotte Wilhelmina (nee Witt) and Joseph Eilliam Nason. Joanne was one of
three children. She is predeceased by her brother Gerald (Rosemary)
Nason and survived by her sister Elizabeth (late Joseph) Milks.
Joanne was a loving wife of 62 years, to the late Robert “BoB” Smith. She leaves
behind three children, Susan (late Michael Camesi) Smith, Constance (David)
Blain, and a son, Maurice “Zeb” (Kelly) Smith. She was a proud grandmother to
Jeremy Zanghi, Katelyn and Jared Smith, Zachary, Lucas and Hanna Blain. She was
a great-grandmother to Katya and Trenton Smith- Worden. She was loved by many
nieces and nephews.
Joanne was a very successful businesswoman. As the owner of Joanne’s Beauty
Shoppe, she had many clients in the Springville and Hamburg areas. Upon moving
to the Westfield area, she took a job at the Westfield Sewing Factory.
She worked there until her retirement.
If you knew Joanne, you would know there was no lack of talent. She was a
wonderful cook and at her table, there was an open invitation to fill your plate.
She could create new and fix the old with sewing and upholstering magic. No job
too big or small.
Joanne inherited her mother’s love of antiques and had a childlike excitement
when she would find something extra special. Her green thumb was the envy of
many as she grew the most beautiful geraniums that appeared year after year.
Joanne lived a full life and will be truly missed.
A Celebration of Joanne’s life and a graveside service will be held in the spring. Arrangements
have been entrusted to Mason Funeral Home, 37 Clinton St Westfield, NY
