Obituary for Arlene Sellers Smith

Today our sweet mother returned to her Father in Heaven and is reunited with her sweetheart, Gary, and her youngest son, Trent. Alzheimer’s robbed her mind but not her spark. Arlene was born March 24, 1942 to Joseph Hugh Sellers and Wanda McBride Sellers in Provo, Utah. She attended Franklin Elementary in Provo and graduated from Provo High. She was married to Gary Verron Smith on October 6, 1961 in the Salt Lake Temple. She raised her family in Orem, Utah and was actively involved in scouting. She served 2 missions to Japan with her husband and one at the Provo MTC. She served in many callings for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The gospel, her family, and scouting were her greatest joys. She is survived by her sister, Colleen (Weston) Randall; sons, Todd (KathiJo) Smith, Tracy (Andrea) Smith, Trevor (Angela) Smith; daughters, Jami Smith, Jodi (Mark) Ford; daughter-in-law, Angie Smith; 19 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren.

I meet Arlene the suumer going into our first year of high school, we both were on a team, pulling onions,

and boy was that a trip, by the end of the day all of our wrist hurt so bad we couldn't close our fist.


As I remember Arlene she  was a very sweet girl and very smart, we always took our breaks together and just 

talked, but when school started we didn't see much of each othe and she had a boy friend, so I just waved!!!
