Christina Lee Smith
Passed away peacefully at her home in Brentwood, TN on Tuesday, January 31, 2023
Christina was such a beautiful person that those who had the privilege of knowing her would agree that these words are merely an attempt at relaying some of the many things that made her irreplaceable and dearly loved by all.
She had a quiet strength that never required being in the spotlight. She refused to speak negatively about others, often starting with the phrase, “well, in their defense”. Christina had a passion for traveling and was a spectacular cook, always being nominated to cook for the family gatherings. She loved all animals and watching the birds on the bird-feeder. She could also be found enjoying a heated game of Scrabble with her mother. However, her first priority, above everything else, was always her family. She was most proud of being “Mom” and never hesitated in putting Nick or Olivia’s needs first. Christina provided unwavering support for all of her friends and family and was the silent strength that was often relied on.
Her first loves were her husband (Sean), children (Nick and Olivia), and her faithful cockapoo, Murphy. She also leaves behind her mother (Sherry), brother (Tony) and his wife (Michelle), mother-in-law (Connie), niece (Emma) and her husband (Patrick) and great nephew Jude, along with many other beloved family members and friends.
She battled valiantly against cancer, never complaining in the process. During this, she continued to think of others, often asking if everyone had enjoyed the holiday or special occasion.
Recently, Christina’s bright light was extinguished here on earth, but she undoubtably will continue to shine and help illuminate the heavens. We were blessed to have her for 52 wonderful years.
Christina, we will always love you!
A private family service will be held at Harpeth Hills Memory Gardens.
