Nancy Ann Smith, age 59, of New Richmond, WI, passed away July 11th, 2020 at her home with the Brotoloc Health Systems. She was born on March 15th, 1961 to parents Erven & Mildred Smith in St. Paul, MN. Nancy had many interests growing up & in her adulthood. She often listened to music & watched videos & television. Nancy especially loved Vanna White from Wheel of Fortune, but her favorite TV character was Mickey Mouse. Nancy collected everything Mickey, from cards & pictures to accessories & most of what was in her closet. She also loved seeing family videos & pictures, & was never without some her favorite photos to admire & share throughout her day. Nancy took great joy in hearing the sneezes of her friends & family, often “sneezing” along & cheering each one on. Nancy’s pure, loving heart, special names for everyone, silly sense of humor, & contagious smile will be missed by all who were blessed to have known & love her.
Nancy will remain in the hearts of her siblings, Dennis (Alicia) Smith of Hammond, WI, Timothy (Claudia) Smith of Hammond, WI, William (Susan) Smith of River Falls, WI, Pamela Smith of Oakdale, MN, & Emily (Kevin) Lindus of Luck, WI; as well as many nieces, nephews, extended family, & the caregivers at Brotoloc.

Interment took place at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis, MN alongside her parents & brother. Memorials made in Nancy’s memory will be put towards providing something beautiful to the place she called home for so many years, Brotoloc Health Systems in River Falls, WI. Nancy’s family would like to extend their immense gratitude to the staff & caregivers at Brotoloc Health Systems of New Richmond, WI for giving her the utmost love & care during the years Nancy called it home.
