Obituary for LUCILLE C. SMEDMAN

Lucille Smedman, 93, of Marquette, passed away Wednesday afternoon, January 3, 2018 at Brookridge Heights Memory Care under the tender care of her loving family and U.P. Home Health and Hospice

Lucille was born on February 3, 1924 in Marquette, the last surviving of 14 children born to Jeffery and Alvina (Brunelle) LaChapelle. She was a 1942 graduate of Bishop Baraga High School and was a lifelong resident of Marquette. On November 29, 1947, she married Charles T. Smedman at St. John’s Catholic Church in Marquette.

Lu took great joy and pride in making a home for her family. She was an active member of St. Michael Catholic Church, enjoyed dancing and bowling. More than anything else, she enjoyed a lot of time with her son and grandchildren.

Surviving are her son, Mark; two grandchildren, Mary and Robert Smedman, all of Marquette; also numerous nieces and nephews. Preceding her in death were her parents; her husband, Charles T. Smedman in 2008; a daughter-in-law, Susan Smedman in 2007; also 13 brothers and sisters.

The Smedman family will greet relatives and friends on Saturday, January 6th at St. Michael Catholic Church beginning at 10 a.m. until the time of the Funeral Mass at 12 noon in the church with the Rev. Greg Heikkala officiating. A luncheon will immediately follow the mass in the Zyrd Parish Center. Spring burial will take place in the Holy Cross Cemetery.

Those wishing to make an expression of sympathy are kindly asked to consider the St. Michael Church Memorial Fund, 401 W. Kaye Ave., Marquette, MI 49855 in Lucille’s memory.

The Smedman family would like extend a special thank you to the staff at Brookridge Memory Care and U.P. Home Health and Hospice for their exceptional care of Lucille over the past several months.
