Lucile Paulson Smith of Canandaigua, N.Y., formerly of Nokomis, Fla., passed away on April 27 at the age of 94. She was predeceased by her childhood sweetheart and devoted husband of 68 years, Howard F. Smith; and by her elder son, Howard F. Smith Jr. She is survived by her children, Lucile (Rodney) Harrington of Milbridge, Maine, Michael (fiancé, Carol O’Donnell) of Lewiston and Brunswick, Maine, Elizabeth (Wendell) Oppewall of Southwest Harbor, Maine, and Susan (Kraig) Kummer of Pittsford, N.Y.; as well as eight grandchildren and an ever-growing host of great-grandchildren. Lucile generously shared her unconditional love with each treasured member of her family. She was our teacher, our cheerleader, and our confidante. In a word, she was the quintessential mother! Her spunky self will be greatly missed. A private celebration of Lucile’s life will be held in Connecticut, at the convenience of the family.
