Obituary for Paula W Smart

Paula W. Smart, 84, of Lighthouse Lane, Moultonborough, died October 19, 2018, at Lakes Region General Hospital in Laconia after a brief illness.

Born in Concord, NH, on June 18, 1934, "Pauly" was the daughter of Margaret (Faucher) and Holton E. White. She graduated from St. Johns High School in 1952 and attended the University of New Hampshire.

In 1955 Pauly married Leonard M. Smart, who pre-deceased her in 2003. Together they built Shelter Cove Cottages on Lake Winnipesaukee in Moultonborough. Very active in her community, she served on the original Recreation Committee, whose hard work resulted in the recently re-dedicated Kraine Meadow Recreation Area; was instrumental in the establishment of Moultonborough Academy; acted as a Supervisor of the (voters) Checklist, and volunteered her time to 4-H, the Red Hill Outing Club and school libraries. In her later years "Mima" was a fixture at many sporting events as the "official" scorekeeper for grandson Kurt Casey's games.

She loved and truly enjoyed her big family, "Little House" at Pemiquid Point in Maine, sunsets on the lake and ocean, her deck overlooking Swallow Cove, boat rides, gardening, knitting mittens for everybody, reading, and grand-dog Charli.

Survivors include four daughters and their husbands: Suzanne Smart Gunter and Richard of Berkley, MA.; Cynthia S. and Gary Mayo of Lebanon, NH, Christine "Deedee" S. and Tom Howard of Moultonborough, and Stephanie S. and Brian Morse of Nashua NH; ten grandchildren, two great-grandchildren and another soon to arrive; brother Michael White of Orlando, Florida, and many nieces and nephews.

Calling hours will be held at Mayhew Funeral Home, 204 D.W. Highway, Meredith, on Wednesday, October 24, from 1-3 pm, with Service immediately following. Burial will be held in Union Cemetery, Laconia, on Thursday, October 25, at 11 am.
