SMITH, Christina Yuill (nee Johnstone)

June 16, 1932 – Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, Scotland
November 7, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

With tremendous sorrow we announce the death of Christina Smith of Calgary, AB, on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 from cancer. Left to mourn with fond memories are her daughter, Laura Stott and husband Dave; grandson, Carlin Delorme and his family Dana, Lorna, and Paul; brother, Andrew Johnstone and cousin Margaret Deas and their families in Scotland. Her death leaves a huge gap and heartache in our lives.

Christina was born in Kilmarnock, Scotland. She was married to Michael Smith in 1967 and their sense of adventure brought them to Canada immediately after. They had one daughter, Laura, and one son, Mark. Christina was predeceased by her son, Mark in 2002, and by her husband, Michael in 2007.

While she was often dealt challenges, Christina always had a determination to be positive and enjoy life, and she showed great strength and courage. She was immediately liked by everyone she met, and enjoyed frequent get-togethers with numerous friends and family. She had a playful sense of humour that often led to bouts of uncontrollable laughter with those around her.

Family and friends are invited to an open house to Celebrate her Life on Saturday, November 17, 2018 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal,
Love leaves a memory no one can steal”

In living memory of Christina Smith, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, CALGARY, AB, T2E 2V6, Telephone: 403-243-8200.
