Luetta Smith

  The family of Luetta Marion (Steeves) Smith is deeply saddened to announce the passing of their dear mother on Monday, May 23, 2022 at the Moncton Hospital at the age of 86.

  Luetta is survived by the following: her sons; Myles Steeves (Vicki), Walter Steeves (Clara), David Steeves, and her daughter, Marion Steeves.

Her stepsons: Jimmy Smith (Nancy), and their children; Rachel, Patrick and Julia; and Stephen Smith (Paula)  and their son Alexander.

Her grandchildren: Tonia  Sherrard (Tom), Travis Steeves, Catherine Steeves (Dean), Shawna Lutes (Patrick), Justin Steeves (Alyssa) .  Three great-grandchildren as well as many nieces and nephews.

  Luetta was born on June 16, 1935 in Havelock, New Brunswick to Hilleard and Margaret (Coates) Branscombe, the eighth of thirteen children.  She is survived by sisters; Grace Branscombe, Margaret Van Til, Lottie Forsythe, and one brother, Ivan Branscombe.  Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her first husband, Raymond Steeves and second husband, Jerry Smith; her brothers: Everett, Earl and Arnold, and sisters; Myrtle Church, Evelyn Colpitts, Gladys Church, Pauline Murray, and Florence Branscombe.

  Luetta was a member of Five Points Baptist Church and the Salisbury Seniors Club, and attended both as long as she was able.  Dedicated to raising her family, she enjoyed her role as a homemaker.  Her manner was always kind and encouraging and her positive spirit made her pleasant to be around.  She would drop anything if she was needed by someone and was never too busy to help others.

  She was loved by many and will be missed by family, as well as Donna, a close family friend, and others who knew her and enjoyed her company.

  Arrangements are in the care of Salisbury Funeral Home with a Celebration of life Thursday, May 26 at 6 p.m. followed by a reception.  Interment will follow at the Five Points Cemetery.

  In lieu of flowers, if desired, donations may be made to the Five Points Church Cemetery Fund or charity of choice.
