Juanita Kathleen Smyth December 9, 1956 - August 15, 2022
Juanita Kathleen Smyth, 65, was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. Although she was taken from us unexpectedly on Aug. 15, her love will remain with us forever. She was born to Wilfred and Darlene Gangl on December 9, 1956 in Deer Lodge, where she grew up and spent time with her parents, siblings and other loved ones. She married Andrew Paul Smyth on Jan. 28, 1976, and they started a wonderful family of their own. Together they had seven children: Krysti, Westly, William, Scott, Jennifer, Cody and Wren. Juanita loved fishing and camping with her husband and family. She also enjoyed taking trips up to Montana, so she could visit siblings and loved ones that were an important part of her life. She was always very happy to have family visit and would often cook delicious meals as she talked and caught up with loved ones in the kitchen. She was always there to support her children and loved ones during difficult times and there to celebrate with them during the best of times. The great experiences and joy she shared with us all will be missed. She is survived by: her husband, Andrew Paul Smyth of Gooding, Idaho; five sons, Westly Smyth of Sandy, Utah, William Smyth of Gooding, Idaho, Scott Smyth of Twin Falls, Idaho, Cody Smyth of Gooding, Idaho and Wren Smyth of Salmon, Idaho; one brother, Chuck Gangl of Deer Lodge; two sisters, Mary Jo Lundstrom of Spokane and Donna Gangl of Deer Lodge; nine grandchildren, Tyler Newman, Bailey Close, Khloe Smyth, Taryn Smyth, Mackaylee Smyth, Emma Smyth, Makaylee Jae Smyth, Sadie Smyth and Kennedy Smyth. She was preceded in death by: her father, Wilford Gangl; mother, Darleen Gangl; two brothers, Raymond Gangl and Kenneth Gangl; and two daughters, Krystina Smyth Close and Jennifer Smyth Cheney. A celebration of life will be held at 2 p.m., Friday, Aug. 19, at Demaray Funeral Service, Gooding Chapel. Services will conclude at the chapel. Cremation arrangements are under the care and direction of Demaray Funeral Service.
