Lauri Smith (January 25, 1954 – March 13, 2021) Resident of Zephyr Cove, NV
Lauri Smith, 67, devoted mother of Crystal and Kelleye, loving grandmother of Kara, Ryder, Holly and Lucy, and cherished sister of Leslie and Sheryl, passed into God's arms on March 13, 2021. Born in San Francisco, Lauri resided in the Bay Area for almost 60 years before moving to her favorite mountain destination of Lake Tahoe in 2012. She was a graduate of De Anza High School and earned her Associates Degree from Diablo Valley College. Her focus and exceptional attention to detail led her to excelling as a florist, retail display manager, seamstress, and hotel revenue auditor. She was a dedicated employee to every company she worked for over the years, especially to Hard Rock Hotel in Lake Tahoe, where she thoroughly enjoyed working from 2015 to 2020. She loved spending time with family and friends, and took pleasure in traveling, baking, sewing, and celebrating traditions. Her loving, giving and courageous spirit will be eternally missed. A memorial service in remembrance and celebration of her life will be held at a later date when COVID restrictions are lifted.
