Jennifer Elizabeth Smith passed away on October 21 after a twelve-year fight with breast cancer.
Jenny was deeply loved by her husband Alan Baker and her many, many friends.
Jenny was predeceased some thirty years ago by “Charlie,” her redheaded Mexican parrot. “Charlie, it’s time to stop flying around the Kootenays.”
She turned her back to the earth, her face to the sky, clenched her fists like bird claws and faced the infinite.
Death loves beauty.€”Jenny, the pain is over.”
“Goodbye, Charlie Bird.”
