Daisy Mary Smack was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, and sister. She left this world suddenly on February 18, 2022 at age 86.
She was born to Joseph Kriesche and Daisy Brown on May 1, 1935. After graduating from high school, Daisy worked at Playtex where she met her late husband, Neil Smack, they married and had 3 beautiful daughters.
Daisy loved spending time outdoors, whether hiking with local groups or tending to her garden. She traveled extensively, from early family trips in the Tioga across the United States to monkey encounters sea kayaking in Costa Rica. Later in life, she frequently enjoyed cruises and dance competitions with her late partner Buck Gibson. She was an avid artist, favoring watercolor and drawing most, but was skilled in just about every medium she could get her hands on and filled her home with her creations.
She is survived by her daughters: Deidre Veid, Mary Hoffer and Julianne Burkhart and her grandchildren: Kevin Hamilton, Rhianna Hoffer, Ashley Vied and Meghan Burkhart.
A small family gathering will be held to honor her life.
