Annette Emily (Lindquist) Smith, 81, of Newbury, Ohio, peacefully passed away Tuesday, January 3, 2023.
On December 29, 1941, Annette was born in New Haven, Connecticut, to the late Einar and Eleanor Lindquist. She graduated from West Haven High School in the Class of 1959.
Annette married the love of her life, Robert A. Smith, on January 27, 1962. They shared 50 years together as husband and wife before he preceded her in death on August 11, 2011.
For nearly 25 years, the couple owned and operated two restaurants: Mister Smiths’ Restaurant in Chagrin Falls and Stoney’s EastSider in Cleveland. In later years, Annette spent much of her retirement working on crafts, playing games and spending time with her family and friends.
Left to cherish Annette’s memory are her three children, Richard Smith, Lisa Bice, and David (Lori) Smith; five grandchildren, Zachary Smith, Hannah Bice, Benjamin Smith, Gabrielle Smith and Tyler Smith; her two sisters, Joan (Joseph) LaFrance and Susan (Tonis) Talviste; and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family will hold a private burial at Munn Cemetery in Newbury, Ohio, with a Celebration of Life gathering at a later date. Stroud-Lawrence Funeral Home is handling arrangements.
