Kathleen E. (McAllister) Smith, 87, of Gilbertsville, wife of the late Robert Smith, sang her way to Heaven to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday November 20, 2021, at 1:39 am surrounded by her loving family snuggled in her bed listening to beautiful worship music.
Born in Philadelphia, she was the daughter of the late Hugh McAllister and Catherine (Boles) McGarvey.
Kathleen loved spending precious time with her beautiful family and she always enjoyed going to the beach in Cape May for family beach days. She enjoyed crocheting beautiful blankets and scarves, planting flowers and watching her plants grow. She wrote beautiful poems the Lord gave to her. She shared the Lord with everyone she met and she was the brightest light of Jesus Christ. Kathleen loved spending time with her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and every child she knew and nurtured. Her selflessness was immeasurable and her generosity to others will be dearly missed. She loved to send out birthday cards and sing to all those she loved and cherished. She was blessed with a beautiful voice and she loved singing praises to the Lord. She was an awesome Prayer Warrior and she prayed fervently for everyone. She was a faithful servant who lived selflessly and so graciously shared all that the Lord had blessed her with.
