Shelley Smith

SMITH, Shelley - Obit Photo.jpg


April 23, 1953 - May 23, 2022

With heavy hearts we are sad to announce the passing of Shelley Ingrid Smith on May 23, 2022 at the age of 69.

Shelley is predeceased by her father Henry (Tampy) Smith; mother Mildred Lamoureux; sisters, Roberta (Bobby)Smith and Laurie Oleson; and her husband Rob (Buzz) Brownridge.


Shelley is survived by her loving wife Joann Rasmussen; sons, Ryan Kristjansson and Kelly (Tara) Kristjansson; grandchildren, Tyler, Leif, Chase, Eric, Kaden, and Marisa; siblings, Brian (Gerrie) Smith, Dave Smith, and Iris (Marie) Smith; nieces Cherie Smith and Susie Smith; and grandniece Karianna Smith.


Shelley was known for her big heart, her passion for a just cause, and her loving and giving nature. To experience her love was like no other, to which she gave freely to her family, friends, community, and of course her animals. 


Shelley went back to university later on in life. With countless hours and effort, she received her degree to which she was very proud of, and went forth in her career at IBM. She learned American sign language only to go on and volunteer at the Deaf Resource Centre of Manitoba. As well as volunteering many hours and raising funds for the Siloam Mission. 


After retirement Shelley found peace and relaxation at the place she loved the most: the cottage. She would spend hours on the deck overlooking the lake and watching her beloved hummingbirds. 


Shelley you are and will forever be the Matriarch of the famila. A true Icelandic warrior at heart.

Those we love don't go away,

they walk beside us every day.

Unseen, unheard, but always near;

still loved still missed and very dear.
