Jeton or those of us who knew her affectionately as Sissy was born on November 10, 1964 to James R. and Bonnie Smyth. Sissy shared a very long lasting special relationship with her life partner Laura Smith. For the last fourteen years Laura and Sissy added balance and ion to each others life. Sissy and Laura enjoyed fishing and their Jack Russell Terriers Thelma and Louise who are full fledged members of their household. To say that Sissy and Laura were both good for each other is a understatement. They loved each other and simply belonged together and us as family are glad that they had each other.
Sissy was a loyal and faithful employee for almost 26 years at United Regional Health Care System. She found her true calling working in laboratory services and enjoyed the latter part of her career as Coordinator of Phlebotomy Services. Sissy had a special group of coworkers that can only be described as family and they too added a great deal of net worth to Sissys life.
Sissy was a driven, task oriented person who liked challenges and in August of 2009 she opened her own boutique, Its All About Me. She took a great sense of pride in being a business woman and was an active member of the Board of Commerce and Industry. She was extremely proud of her boutique and anything that Sissy was involved in was certain to be a success.
Sissy had high standards, she expected a lot but gave a lot. Sissys generosity of time and resources for area charities knew no bounds. Sissy will be remembered as a loyal friend who would always rise to the task for a friend or organization. Sissy took it to the next level as an aunt and her love for both Jaci and Lane was of epic proportions.
Survivors include her partner of 14 years, Laura Smith her mother Bonnie Y. Smyth her brother Tommy Smyth and wife Mica of Wichita Falls, her niece Jaci and her nephew Lane.
The family wishes to express their appreciation to physicians: Dr. Chakinala, and Dr. Leo Mercer and a endless list of nurses and staff who provided so much comfort in twelve days that have changed our lives forever.
