June Eleanor (Peoples) Smith, 83, died Wednesday, May 8, 2019, at her home in Cody.
June never knew a stranger. There were no boundaries of her love for others. She gave to everyone around her. Although she masqueraded as the town’s Avon Lady she was the unofficial social worker. She worked tirelessly to help others in need.
She always made time to have a cup of coffee with you and share uplifting conversation. Her strong faith in God, guided her footsteps throughout life. Her passing is a huge loss, not only to her family and friends, but to the community as well.
June enjoyed a long career as a Director for the Park County Hospital. She retired after 26 years to spend more time with her sweetheart James Smith. They were married almost 70 years. The two shared a love that was unending. They are now together.
She was a wonderful mother to her four children: Carolyn McCain, James H. Smith (deceased), Cathy McConnell, and Scott Smith; grandmother of Samantha Katherman, Paul McCain, Nathan McCain, Keenan McConnell (deceased), Cody McConnell, Amber McConnell, Carolyn Wood, Samuel Smith, Christopher Smith, Patrick Smith; great-grandmother of Kaitlyn Kumaroo, Aidan McCain, Braxton Gardner, Gavin Wood, Caiden Morris, Chloe Smith and great-great-grandmother of Teddy Bunnell. Survived by brother Raymond L. Peoples.
Her love included all animals. Her pride and joy was Oscar the Cat that was adopted seven years ago from the Park County Animal Shelter. She was very active with support for the animal shelter.
She was laid to rest next to her sweetheart at Riverside Cemetery on May 10, 2019.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be given to the Park County Animal Shelter in her name.
