Margaret "Markie" Sarah Smith

July 30th, 1934 - April 11th, 2024

Margaret Sarah (Moore) Smith of Highlands Ranch, Colorado passed away on 04/11/2024, age 89.


She was born in Chatham, New York to Louis and Sarah (Garner) Moore. She grew up in the same house where she was born and graduated from Chatham High School in 1952.

Margaret married Wesley Smith in 1954. Wesley was in the Navy and she joined him in traveling around the world during his 26 years of active service. Together they had 5 children: David, Linda, Carol, Rodney and Bonnie. She was a devoted wife, mother and homemaker.  Keeping in touch with family and friends was an important part of her life. Corresponding, talking on the phone and texting helped her stay connected with everyone. Markie, as family and friends new her, was an avid reader and loved reading faith filled stories, nutrition articles, current events and world news but her bible was a favorite daily read.


Margaret was preceded in death by her parents, husband Wesley, son David Smith and daughter Linda Smith. 


Margaret will be missed by those she leaves behind; daughters Carol Weaver (Steve), Bonnie Kotula (Armand); son Rodney Smith (Cindy); grandchildren Michael Smith, Matthew Smith (Sasha), Marina Hulbert (Casey), Alexander Kotula (Cassie) and great-grandchildren Evelyn and Tristan Hulbert; Brothers John Moore, Tom Moore and many cousins and relatives.


Cremation has taken place and no service will be held per Margaret’s wishes.

A private graveside service will be attended by her daughters and their spouses only.

The Margaret Smith Family, My meeting this lovely lady was such a short time ago, I only had afew months of knowing her. A very gracious lovely Lady indeed, was one we could openly immediately share our faith together as I felt out Spirits connected quickly ! I last saw her in our medical office. She was being assisted back to her apartment, her infectious smile was on her face, and wanted to get home to rest; as she was often sitting or walking, around our grounds and we would meet and sit and visit. We exchanged in conversation that we would talk at another time when she had rested. I’m sad we were not able to do that because I then read she was able to pass from this life into the Arms of her Heavenly Lord and Savior. Barbara Martin

My Aunt Markie was a special lady to me! In my younger years after my mother passed away, we enjoyed visiting her, my uncle and cousins in Rhode Island. In Colorado we visited during a skiing trip and then later in life we reconnected by email, texting, phone calls, and visiting her a couple of times at her assisted living facility — she was the excellent host treating us to lunch in the cafe at the facility and remembering times gone by and 2 years ago visiting and sharing in her grandson’s wedding!! Her special friend was Jesus and she always had words of encouragement and shared promises from the Bible —-we shared prayers for her family and my family— she is missed and will see her soon when Jesus’ comes to take us home to be with Him and our loved ones who have gone before us. Deepest sympathy to Bonnie, Carol and Rodney, and their families.
