Shirley Smith Obituary

Shirley Ann Smith (Maier), 88, of Salt Lake City, Utah, passed away on March 22, 2024, in Youngtown, Arizona.  She was born on July 29, 1935, in Hill City, Kansas. Shirley was a loving mother survived by her sons Eric J Smith (Marcela) and Greg L. Smith (Wendy) and her daughter, Kristina (Tina) E. Smith, sister Betty Ferrante, brother Jake Maier. She was preceded in death by her son, Scott W. Smith (1998) and brother Gene Maier.  

After Shirley graduated from high school, she moved to New Orleans to work as an airline ticket agent until she was transferred to Denver, where she met her ex-husband John and started a family.  They settled in Salt Lake where she spent the majority of her life. She worked for Salt Lake County as a receptionist until her retirement.  She was most notably known for her quick wit, ‘colorful’ language and passion for cooking and sharing meals with her family and friends. Her culinary skills (popcorn balls and cheese sandwiches!) brought comfort to many gatherings and will be fondly remembered by all who knew her.

Upon retirement she circumvented the globe on a world cruise in only 71 days! Her hobbies were reading, long conversations with her sister, and attending Ballet and Utah Symphony with friends and family.

A celebration of life will be held at the home of Eric and Marcela (8958s 2070 W. West Jordan Utah) on May 4, 2024, at 2pm where family and friends will gather to celebrate and honor Shirley’s life.
