Jackie Lee Smith, age 58, of Edmond, Oklahoma passed away on Thursday, January 4, 2018 at OU Medical Center in Edmond due to an unexpected medical complication. She had struggled with chronic pain, numerous medical complications and surgeries over the past sixteen years.

She lived the rest of her life in Oklahoma, from Tulsa to Duncan, Oklahoma City and finally Edmond.
Jackie loved children and gave birth to her first son, Alan in 1978 and was blessed with her second son, Cameron twenty years later in 1998. Jackie operated an in-home daycare for nearly twenty years and planted the seeds for her own boys and many of her toddlers to become the outstanding adults they are today.

Jackie was best known as a homemaker, decorator, gardener and especially an outstanding chef.
