Funeral Card Friday: Ruth (Laurie) Smith

This entry was posted by on Friday, 4 January, 2013 at

My great aunt Ruth (Laurie) (Stedman) Smith lived to be 99 years old. Funeral cards can be a great resource. I’ve even seen photos on some funeral cards as early as 1923.

  1. Wow! She lived a long life. She must have had a ton of interesting tales to tell.

    Thanks for sharing.

      Me and my family spent probably the most time with her before she finally passed away. She was very feisty and full of a lot of information and stories. I only wish I was more into genealogy before she passed away and asked her more.

      Regards, Jim
