Carol Kaiser (Smith)

Carol Kaiser (Smith)

Carol Lynn Kaiser Smith ascended to her heavenly home on March 9, 2021.

She was born in El Campo, TX on February 25, 1948. She married Ronald Allen Smith, August 24, 1968 and moved to Bryan, TX. She and Ron moved to Houston in 1970. In 1999 they made Katy, TX their home.

Carol owned Carol’s Arts and Crafts in the Memorial area in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. She was a gifted artist and loved teaching craft classes. She retired from the arts and crafts business in 1981 to have more time at home with her family. She loved working in her flower beds, cooking and decorating. She enjoyed time spent at the “deer lease” in Medina, TX as well as many fishing and boating trips.

Carol was a loving wife, mother, daughter, grandmother, sister, and aunt. She was an awesome hostess, entertaining business associates and hosting family gatherings. She was unintimidated by new projects and embraced technology. She was funny, and charismatic and she never met a stranger. She lived her life with courage and optimism.

Carol was preceded in death by her mother and father, Milton W. Kaiser, Sr. and Lillie Gates Kaiser; sister, Marla McGlaun and husband Bobby McGlaun; Mother and father-in-law, Gilbert and Margaret Smith; Brothers-in law, Jimmy Smith and Kenny Smith; Grandparents, Grover and Katie Gates, and Alfred and Cordelia Kaiser; and a special great aunt and uncle, Mamie and Ben Morrison.

Left to miss her earthly presence in our lives: husband, Ronald A. Smith of Katy, TX; sons, Brian C. Smith and wife Kathryn of Gilmer, TX and Clayton A. Smith and Polina Tropashko of Antioch, CA; grandchildren, Angel Bowers of San Antonio, TX, Taylor Smith of Gilmer, TX, and Henry Smith and Elizabeth Smith of Houston, TX; sister Lee Scott and husband Stephen of Houston, TX; brother, Dickie Kaiser and wife Michelle of Boerne, TX. She also leaves numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends.

We will miss her earthly presence all the days of our lives. As we bow our heads in sorrow, she lifts her face to the light and rejoices in Heaven. She is hugging the loved ones who went home before us. She knew that when she left this earth it would be to live in glory with Jesus.

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. 2 Timothy 4:7

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love but the greatest of these is love. Corinthians 13:13
