Obituary:
PARSONSFIELD- Luella Mae (Johnson) Smith, age 87, of Burnham Road, passed away on Jan. 7, 2012 in Scarborough.
She was born in South Portland, Maine on Aug. 9, 1924, the oldest of seven children of the late Forrest and Elfra (Eastman) Johnson.
Luella grew up in South Portland and graduated from South Portland schools.
During WWII, she worked at the South Portland Shipyard where she met her future husband, Arnold H. Smith. After Arnold returned from active duty in WWII, they married in 1946. Arnold made a career of the USMC, which gave the couple the opportunity to live in different areas around the country and overseas, including living in Taiwan for three years. After Arnold retired from the USMC, the couple settled in Parsonsfield, where she raised her family.
She was known for her love of the outdoors; however, her love of her family, especially her grandchildren, is what she will be remembered by.
She spent the last seven years taking care of her husband at their home after he suffered a stroke in 2004.
