Obituary for Erika Smith

Erika Smith age 92 of Midland, Michigan passed away peacefully on January 15, 2019. Erika was born in Offenburg, Germany. Her family then moved to Pforzheim, Germany where at the end of WWII she met and fell in love with H.O. Smith, a very handsome American soldier. They were married in Pasadena, California on March 29, 1947 and she proudly became an American citizen shortly thereafter. They were married for 71 years.

Erika is survived by her son Steve M. Smith (Theresa) of Grand Rapids, MI, her grandchildren Melanie, Nichole, David and Kyle and five wonderful great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Hermes and her beloved daughter Heidi Nelson.

Erika loved the Midland community and the many friends she had that were always there to provide love, friendship and kindness. She greeted everyone with a warm smile and a friendly “hello”. The family would like to thank the staff of Stratford Pines for their care and support and their many “hello Erika” which brightened her days.

Per her wishes a cremation memorial service for Erika will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at Memorial Presbyterian Church. Her family will receive friends at the church on Saturday from 12 p.m. noon until the time of service. In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to the Chippewa Nature Center or Midland Center for the Arts.
