LEWISTON — Another angel has gone home to be with her Lord and Savior. Sue-Ellen (Huntington) Smith, 60, of Phillips, passed away Tuesday, Oct. 3, at Central Maine Medical Center in Lewiston, after complications with a medical procedure. She was born Dec. 2, 1956, in Farmington, the daughter of Marguerite (Huntington) Handrahan and Gilbert Joy. She graduated from Carrabec High School in the Class of 1975 and furthered her education at Thomas College, graduating in 1977.

Currently, she was attending Central Maine Community College working toward a career as a Christian counselor. On April 19, 1978, Sue married the love of her life, Charles W. Smith, in Strong. Sue grew up in North New Portland, then lived most of her married years in Phillips, with a few years spent in the South in Louisiana and Texas. Over the years, Sue worked at Forster Mfg., SAD 58 in Phillips as a librarian, Walmart in Farmington and her favorite job of all was being a mother and a wife. She was a member of the United Methodist Church of Strong, Women’s Bible Study, board member for Boy Scout Troop 500, Eastern Star Oppalunski Chapter 125, past Mother Advisor for the International Order of the Rainbow for Girls, Phillips Assembly 8, and was very involved with Boy Scout Troop 592 in Phillips. Sue enjoyed people, bird watching, Bible study, crocheting and reading. She loved her husband and children and spent much of her time watching different events that they were involved in. Sue was always there to help where she could. Despite her declining health with COPD, she was there as much as she could be, and often more.

Sue is survived by her loving husband of 39 years, Charles W. Smith, of Phillips; her daughters, Melissa C. Smith and partner Mathew J. Pazaris of Dedham, Mass., Jasmine B. Smith of Phillips; her sons, Jordan J. Smith, Michael D. Smith and Nathaniel B. Smith, all of Phillips; and many cousins, nephews and nieces. She was predeceased by her mother, Marguerite (Huntington) Handrahan; her son, Kenneth A. Smith; and her nephew, Rodric Poulin.
