Leta C. Smith, 85, passed away May 12, 2023.

Our Mom was a sweet, loving, caring mom.  We were so blessed to have her as our mom, grandma and gg.  She loved nature, gardening and just being outdoors with her family.

Leta was very independent, yet soft spoken and ready to help any way she could.  She grew up on a farm with her parents Lewis and Olive (Rand) Barnes, sister Betty and brothers Ralph and Paul.  At 18, she Leta left the farm and moved to the city where she worked as a secretary.  At 21, she married and had her fist child at 23, Jeff, her second child at 27, Jana and her third child at 29, Tom.  Leta worked for the IRS and sold Supplemental Insurance for over 40 years.  Leta loved the Kansas City Royals and shopping for bargains at Thrift Stores and garage sales.

Visitation will be 12PM, with services to follow at 1PM, Tuesday, May 23 at Park Lawn Funeral Home, 8251 Hillcrest Rd., Kansas City, Missouri; burial in Green Lawn Cemetery.

Proverbs 3:3-4
Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.  Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.

John 8:12
Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world.  He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”

Psalm 23:6
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

2 Corinthians 13:11
Finally, brethren, farewell.  Become complete.  Be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.
