Georgejean Marlinda Hiyada SmithAugust 29, 1978 ~ July 24, 2016 (age 37)
Our loving angel, Georgejean Marlinda Hiyada "Sis" Smith, graced this Earth and brightned our lives on August 29, 1978, in Tacoma, Washington.
Born to Janice Obi-Davis (Smith) of La Push/Queets and Lloyd A. Smith Sr. of Taholah/Skokomish. Washington.
Georgejean was called back to Heaven on July 24, 2016.
Sis was proud to be enrolled with the Quinault tribe. She was also proud of her life on the Quileute Reservation, where she had lived most of her life.
She graduated from Forks High School in 1997. She was also proud to be Taholah Chitwhin where she grabbed the hearts of the whole Chitwin community, whom she loved dearly. To call anyone a friend of Georgejean Smith would be an understatement because if you were anything to Sis...you were family, and then you would only know her by "Sista".
Sis had her own beautiful and precious baby girl, Barbara Janice Pierre, whose father is William Pierre (BJ), who remained a close friend to Georgejean throughout the years. Montrel Sharpless stood as Georgejean's soul mate through her last great years on Earth.
Sis was also referred to as Teacher Sis and worked passionately with many children in the Quinault and Quileute day care where she called all the kids she taught her babies until the day she was called back to heaven.
Before her calling, she had also taught the hurt and the weak to fight - and the most uncompassionate and difficult of person to care and love. There was no obstacle that stood in her way or pain that she undured that could take away her beautiful smile. All that knew her will forever be inspired b ythe life of Georgejean Marlinda Hiyada Smith.
We will miss you forever, but home for an angel is Heaven, Sista. It's time to fly with the Lord now, love.
Georgejean has numerous nieces and nephews who all were partially raised by Sis, and she wanted them all to know that thier Auntie loved them with all of her heart and to never forget Anutie's love for them because she would never forget thier love for her.
Sis has eight brothers: James Smith, Aaron Obi, Alfred Smith, Dakotah Smith Sr., Albert Smith, Jerry Smith and Steven Smith. She was preceded in death by brother Lloyd Smith Jr. She also has six sisters: Kathy Smith, April Smith, Susan Davis, Bay Smith, Lucy Smith, and Kate Smith - who were standing tall by her at her celebration of her life that was held at the La Push A-Ka-Lat on Saturday, July 30, 2016 at 11:00 am. Sis was laid to rest at Quileute Cemetery in La Push, Washington.
