Beverly (Campbell/Fox) Smith
It is with great sadness that the family of Beverly (Campbell/Fox) Smith announces her passing on May 14, 2021 at the age of 71. Bev had persevered through numerous heart-related surgeries, all the while never losing her positive spirit and desire to love and appreciate those around her and we were all fortunate to have her as long as we did.
Bev lived in Twin Falls, Idaho for nearly 30 years and worked many of those years at the Twin Falls County Sheriff’s Department, while raising her two daughters, Stephanie and Melanie. She met and married Brent Smith in 1995 and they moved to Deer Lodge, Montana in 2006 to be closer to Brent’s daughter, Leslie, and her family. Bev worked at the Powell County Courthouse, sharing her knowledge and spirit until her retirement in early 2015. All the while, she and Brent enjoyed raising sheep and all the excitement that goes along with livestock (like taking bummer lambs to the office because they have to be bottle fed on a schedule)! Bev loved to grow a garden, puzzles and traveling to see her family. She also enjoyed spending time in her kitchen, creating delicious meals for her family (made with love) and friends that stopped by.
Bev was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend and will be lovingly remembered by her family and friends.
She is survived by her husband, Brent Smith, daughters Melanie (Ben Moritz) Fox, Stephanie Fox, Leslie (Alan) Boomer, granddaughters Téa Moritz and Ashley (Willow) Wehr and grandson Alex Boomer and great granddaughter Jordan Wehr.
At this time, no funeral service is scheduled. Cards may be sent to Brent Smith c/o Ashley Wehr, 47 Tristan River Lane, Deer Lodge, Montana, 59722. In lieu of flowers, please feel free to donate to Powell County Medical Foundation, In Loving Memory of Bev Smith, 1100 Hollenback Lane, Deer Lodge, Montana, 59722.
