Gregarious and fun loving, Mary Jane made friends wherever she went. She was a devoted wife and loving mother. She especially enjoyed her grandchildren and seemed happiest seated on the floor playing in their midst. We miss her.
Mary Jane’s husband Henry Smith died Sept 9, 2009. Also preceding her in death were her brother Dr. John Heizer of Billings, MT, and sister Marlea Anderson of Parker, CO. She is survived by four sisters, Donna Johnson of Bozeman, MT; Helen Hiner of Queen Creek, AZ; Dolores Clark of Prescott, AZ; and Dr. Deanna Strackbein of Beach, ND; her three children: Stephen Smith of Haverhill, MA; Paula Ives and husband Robert of Marblehead, MA; Kenneth Smith and wife Melissa Montello of Groveland, MA and her parents, Nancy and Alan Montello of West Newbury; six grandchildren: Heather and Emily Smith, Jonathan Ives; Sabine, Violette and Henry Smith and four great-grandchildren. She also leaves her dear friend Lee Lower of Essex.
ARRANGEMENTS: A Memorial Service will be held to celebrate the life of Mary Jane Smith on Sunday, March 10th, at 1:30 p.m. at Veasey Memorial Park, 201 Washington Street, Groveland, MA.
