Obituary

Utahna (Campbell) Smith died in the early hours of March 14, 2021 at the age of 89, Happiest Birthday Reunion ever.

Utahna was born March 14, 1932 in Trenton, Utah. She was the youngest of seven children born to John Matthew Campbell and Florence (Flossie) Bardella (Dees) Campbell. Utahna was raised and educated in Jerome, Idaho.

Utahna met Don Junior Smith on a blind date in July of 1948. Don’s brother Ron Hoskin was wanting to take Arlene Hepworth, Utahna’s niece on a date, but did not have a car. Don had a car, and the rest was history. Utahna married her sweetheart Don Smith on March 22, 1949 in the Idaho Falls Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for time and all eternity. She said many times, “It was the most wonderful day, not only because I was married to my sweetheart, but I was also sealed to my family.”

Don and Utahna began married life on a farm in Jerome, Idaho working for Ira Foster. While living in Jerome, Utahna gave birth to their first daughter Donna Utahna, who died at birth, May 2, 1950. The following year May 18, 1951 their second daughter, Dorthy Kay was born. Soon they moved to the Filer area and worked for Francis Decker. On July 5, 1952, their third daughter was born, Sharon Renee. In 1954 Don rented a farm from Bob Brackett, southwest of Twin Falls. At the time Don was also working at Amalgamated Sugar Factory to make ends meet. Don would make a list of things that needed to be done each day on the farm for Utahna. Utahna would put one baby on each sided of her and get the tractor work done. When she had finished the outlined work, she would start milking the cows. Utahna would put both girls in grain barrels to keep them safe. When Don would get home, he would finish the milking. Utahna would take the girls to the house and make supper. After supper Don would go back out and work until the sun went down. With blessings from Heavenly Father, they made it work.

Don rented a large farm closer to his mother’s farm so they could help her out. On January 16, 1956, their fourth daughter Debra Jean was born. Don bought his mother’s farm in 1959 where they resided. Don, Utahna and Utahna’s father built their home in 1959. Their family was made complete on September 19, 1966 when Don Gary Smith, their baby boy, was born. Utahna felt all her prayers for a perfect family had been answered.

Utahna was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in many different callings. She had a strong testimony and love for her Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ. Utahna loved everyone she knew and was always so grateful for all her blessings. Her family was her whole world. She is the greatest mom, grandmother, and friend.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Don Junior; daughter, Dona Utahna; siblings, Willa, Jean, Joy, Dee, and Jay; one grandson, Joseph Glen Henry; one great-great grandson, Paxton Walls. She is survived by her children, Dorthy Kay Henry (Don), Sharon Renee Myers (Rick), Debra Jean Loughmiller (Andrew), Don Gary Smith (Cheryl); 14 grandchildren; 65 great grandchildren; 10 great-great grandchildren.

A graveside service will be at 11 a.m. Thursday, March 18, 2021 at Sunset Memorial Park, 2698 Kimberly Rd. in Twin Falls. A live stream of the service may be viewed by visiting Utahna’s obituary page at www.whitereynoldschapel.com.

This is Robyn Keller (Hoskin) Ronald and Dona's daughter. Rachelle Hoskin and I watched the funeral service together online. I am in Washington and she is in Twin Falls, in bed, recovering from a foot surgery. What a delight to be able to share in this beautiful family time together. We remember Aunt Utahna as being so kind and gentle. We loved playing together on the farm, crawling around the big tractors and playing in the barns. We had a blast with Gary riding his motorcycle. We remember laughing until and running around. We especially remember playing on her exercise equipment. A belt that wrapped around our bodies and jiggled and shaked us, a square we would stand on and twist. She was so kind to share everything she had. I was always a little jealous of Gary because Aunt Utahna would let him put as much sugar on his breakfast cereal as he wanted, which was ALOT! We have lots of beautiful memories. We send our deepest love to Gary, Debbie, Sharon, and Kay. Our only regret is that we have not spent more time together. Love you all heaps..Aunt Utahna is a wonderful woman and we hope she is enjoying life on the other side with dad and Uncle Don and Grandma Hoskin.

Aunt Utahna's graveside services were very nice. Thanks for having it available on YouTube so us out of Staters could attend. We loved Uncle Don and Aunt Utahna. They are wonderful people and we are sure they had a great reunion together and with our dad and our Grandma Hoskin. We send our love to Kay, Sharon, Debbie, and Gary. It was nice to see Utahna, Sharon and Kay on memorial day this past year. With Love, Rick and Cammy Hoskin
