Obituary of Luella Maria Barlow Smith

After a long and courageous journey with cancer, Luella Maria Barlow Smith, 73—wife of Steven Glen Smith—passed away peacefully on February 21, 2021, at home surrounded by her loving family. Maria was born on November 24, 1947, in Santa Monica, California, the only daughter and youngest child of Edmund Garrett and Evva Maria Burnham Barlow.

Maria graduated in 1965 from Santa Monica High School and in 1967 from Willis Business College. Following graduation, she followed her father and mother to Columbus, Ohio, where she became her father’s personal secretary as he opened up the Ohio Mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Maria loved serving alongside her parents, and it was there she met Steven. After she returned home, they dated and were sealed for time and all eternity on August 23, 1968, in the Salt Lake City Temple.

Maria loved life and was a friend and example to all those who knew her. She was a seamstress and avid reader. Maria also had a passion for the arts, including, painting, card making and paper crafts. For many years, even while her health was weak, she regularly held craft nights with family and friends. Maria was a devoted wife and mother who loved attending musicals, sporting events, baptisms, and birthday celebrations. She loved spending time with her husband, children, and grandchildren.

Maria’s faithfulness to her Savior, Jesus Christ, influenced the way she lived her life. She was a Christian and a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Serving as the Primary chorister was her favorite church calling, as she loved little children and teaching them about the Savior through music. Her family was a recipient of her beautiful voice as she would often sing or hum around the home. Maria believed being a mother was her life’s mission. Throughout her life, her children gathered around her for gospel conversations and motherly advice; she was the ultimate “late-night listener.” She will be remembered as someone whose infectious smile and laugh brought warmth and joy to everyone. Although cancer was a difficult trial for 22 years of her life, Maria’s example to endure with grace and humility will be cherished and remembered forever.

In addition to her parents, Maria is preceded in death by her brother Norman and sisters-in-law, Joan and Norma. Surviving her are her husband, six sons, one daughter, and eighteen grandchildren: Steven Michael (Susie Paulsen), Brandon, Alyssa, Tyler, Jessica, and Danielle; Jason Edmund (Emily Camacho), Lissa and Joshua; James McKay (Melissa Richardson), McKayla, Allison, Hailey, Spencer, Julie, and Sydney; Joel Theron (Karen Peterson), Dallin, Nathan, Ian, Benjamin, and Declan; Matthew Garrett; Emily Maria (Robert Bennett); and David Matthew. Also surviving Maria are her brothers, Lynn, Glenn, James (Joan), Paul (Amy), Loree, (sister-in-law), Joel (Mary Lou) and David (Lorraine).

A viewing will be held on February 24, 2021, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Sundberg Olpin & Wheeler Funeral Home, 495 South State Street, Orem, Utah. The funeral service will be held on February 25th at 11:00 a.m. The service will be broadcast live on Facebook at the following link: https://www.facebook.com/sundbergolpinfuneralhome Interment will be at the Orem Cemetery, 1520 North 800 East, Orem, Utah. Donations are welcome in Maria’s name, to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. https://www.komen.org/how-to-help/donate/

Well folks, if you're feeling a bit bored during the pandemic, I have a cool idea for you. For the past forty years, we've been spending 1-2 weeks, each winter, in Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco, or Zihuatanejo on Mexico's Pacific coast. We love our winter respites, but I have never learned to speak the language properly. While I had acquired a vocabulary of hundreds of words, I really didn't have a clue how to conjugate the verbs and change the tenses.

This winter, feeling shut in and isolated, we didn't do our annual Mexico trip, but I found an online school that offers one-on-one Spanish lessons. Believe me, it is a great way to revive a stagnating mind, so I'd like to share the link with you. blinkspanish.com. I've been taking lessons three times a week from two lovely profesoras and study an extra hour or two every day. They have various specials on packages of up to 50 hours of instruction. (I bought that one)

I am no longer bored, and, next time I'm in Mexico, I will actually be able to communicate with some skill. I highly recommend using Blink. It's a great experience. You're welcome to talk with me about it.
