Maria Mimi Vida Paz Smith
A Life Celebration for (Mimi) Maria Vida P. Smith was held at First Assembly of God Church, Red Hill Campus. The private limited gathering occurred on August 8th, 2020. The live service was recorded and may be viewed via the following link: MIMISMITH.NET. Condolences, photos and shared stories may be posted on her Facebook page via the aforementioned online link. Mimi was a valiant cancer survivor for over ten years before succumbing to her quietus. It was through her battle with cancer that she was able to use her personal testimony and life victories to touch other cancer warriors. Others with challenging life struggles and adversity in their personal life benefitted from her hope and cheerful optimism. Her hope was founded on her strong faith and love in Jesus Christ. Her dedication to serving others was fulfilled through many years of ministry involvement/leadership at First Assembly of God, Red Hill. Her investment of more than 10 years teaching in the youth ministry leaves a lasting impact on the next generation of our church and community. Mimi truly was light and will be sorely missed by all who had the fortune of their life journey intersecting her life.
