Mrs. Smith was among the pioneer women of this locality, having arrived here when Idaho was still a territory and Idaho Falls was called Eagle Rock.She has been a devout worker in the cause of religion and has been a familiar figure in Methodist church circles since the church was first organized in this city.The present Ladies' aid of the Methodist church owes its origin to five women, Mrs. Smith being one of the five.The other four charter members were Mrs. Dr. Wilson, Mrs. W. H. B. Crow, Mrs. Hardman, and mrs. Jennie Wood.Mrs. Wilson is now the only surviving member who resides in Idaho Falls.
Mrs. Smith was a woman greatly liked and admired by her many friends.Of a sweet and mild disposition, her kindness to the sick, her neighborliness, her unassuming Christianity and unswerving piety leave many to mourn her loss.
