RITA LOUISE GREEN SMITH
86, of Kailua, Oah’u, passed away in her ocean-side home on November 12, 2012. Rita was born on August 7, 1926 in Delta, Colorado. She was raised in Delta and Austin, Colorado while her father raised fruit at the College Farm. During World War II she attended Colorado State College and participated in sorority activities. She graduated from CSC with a B.S. in life sciences with a certification to teach. Rita married Max Smith on July 11, 1948. She assisted Max at an animal hospital in Safford, Arizona for 14 years. Then in 1965 the family surprised relatives and moved to Hawaii where Max worked as a veterinarian for the State of Hawaii. Rita taught science for 24 years at King Intermediate in Kaneohe. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in various positions. She enjoyed supporting community activities such as the annual Easter Egg Hunt and many rodeo events at Gunstock Ranch, the family ranch in Laie. Rita was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. The family thanks the loving caregivers who, during Rita’s declining years, allowed her to remain in her home watching the sunrise over the Mokulua Islands and hearing Kailua Bay’s soothing surf even until the day of her death. She was preceded in death by her husband Max Bigler Smith, parents Ferris Milton Green and Effie Elnora Cofer, and her sister Dale Green Lawson. Rita is survived by her six children, Barry (Susie) Smith, Kris Anne (Paul) Gustavson, Kari (George) Archibald, Troy (Carey) Smith, Jon (Anne) Smith and Greg (Kyndra) Smith.
