Obituary for Joan Smith

Joan Trador Smith, 82, of Buffalo passed away peacefully at her home December 12, 2018, following a long illness. She was born January 26, 1936 to Permelia Ann Stover Garrison. In January of 1966, she married the love of her life, Junior R. Smith, who preceded her in death in December of 2004.

Joan was a lifelong resident of Buffalo, WV. She was a dedicated mother and wife. She treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. She always enjoyed spending time with her family, as they meant the world to her.

She was also preceded in death by her loving grandparents, Joseph and Katherine Stover; brothers, Howard “Tom” Stover, Arthur Dale Stover, James “Red” Stover, and Arnold “Pete” Stover; sisters, Josephine Williams, Bertha Jividen, Gladys Huffman, and Ruth “Bea” Jividen.

She is the loving and devoted mother of Dewayne (Bonnie) Smith, and Lorie (Shawn) Meadows, both of Buffalo; grandmother to Sarah (Scott) Wright of Boaz, Alabama; and great-grandmother to Nicholas and Skyler Wright.

In addition to her children, she is survived by brothers, Jerry Stover of Nitro, Ronald Garrison of Williamstown, Bob (Alice) Stover of Buffalo, and James (Shirley) Garrison of Cardington, Ohio; and sister, Lorena Rogers of Baltimore, Ohio.

The family would like to take this time to recognize the wonderful group of caregivers for all of their love, kindness, comfort, and support at a time when it meant so very much. Foremost, we would like to express our most sincere gratitude and love to Candace Johnson, who went over and beyond anything that was needed or could be asked for. There was no task too great or small, and she performed each and every one with the greatest of love. Included in that was the love of her two very special children, Camryn and Huntre Cossin, who forever held a special place in Granny’s heart.

Funeral service will be held at 12:00 P.M. Saturday, December 15, 2018 at Raynes Funeral Home (Eleanor Chapel) with Pastor Leroy Meadows officiating. Burial will follow in Grandview Cemetery, Red House. The family will receive friends from 6:00 – 8:00 P.M. Friday, December 14, 2018 at the Eleanor Chapel.
