Patricia A. Smith

December 27, 1962 ‒ April 21, 2020

Sarasota County, Florida
Formerly of Delaware, Ohio

Patricia A. Smith, age 57, native of Sunbury, OH, departed this life early Tuesday, April 21, 2020.  She was born to the late Jack B. Smith and Mary Lois Smith on December 27, 1962.

Tricia attended Big Walnut High School before getting married and having two Children, Daughter Malissa A. Crawford, 36 and son, Devon M. Crawford, 34, both of Delaware, OH.

Tricia then became a guard for ORW in Marysville, Ohio where in her spare time she enjoyed making ice cream cones at the dairy in Prospect, Ohio.  This is where she learned to love to travel.  Which landed her in Sarasota County, Florida for over the last decade of her life where her heart became the sunset, sea turtles and shells.

No matter where or what she was doing, she was most passionate about her relationship where her God.  So now I know her soul is at rest.  In addition to her children she leaves behind 7 grandchildren, sisters, Paula, Lois and Shirley Smith and brother Michael J. Smith.

Flower donations may be sent to the DeVore-Snyder Funeral Home in Sunbury or donations may be made to the Humane Society in honor of her favorite dog, Mousse.

  • I am sorry for this loss. I would like to extend my condolence to the the family.
    I had many good times with Trish and she had a heart unlike most others. She was kind, caring, and would do most anything to put a smile on someones face. I will miss those good times but I have the comfort knowing that she is in a place that I will see her once again someday! RIP in my friend!

  • So sorry for your loss. Trish and I were roommates for about a year in Venice, Fl. I got to know her well and will miss her and the good times we had. She was always ready to step up to the plate when it was time to help a friend. She was not afraid of hard work or lending a hand. RIP Trish!

  • Mom I miss you so much already! I know I wasnt the best child, giving u all those grey hairs n all and I know I’ve been distant for a while I was just trying to get better myself.
