December 24, 1977 – June 19, 2022 (age 44)
Early June 17, Shem Warriner McClure Smith made the decision to end his life. He was kept on life support to preserve his organs, which were successfully used to save countless lives before passing away on Father’s Day. His family is grateful that his pain has ceased, and know that his struggling is over.
Shem loved playing basketball, listening to “80’s Buttrock”, going camping, and spending time with family. He was a hard worker and did everything he could to provide for his family. His death was preceded by his grandparents, his parents, and his brother Jared. Shem and Jared finally get to be together again after more than 25 years apart.
Shem is survived by his wonderful wife Jenny and his five children: Maddie, Abbie, Emmie, Jarem, and Lillie. He is also survived by 14 of his 15 siblings and will leave a lasting legacy on the hundreds of friends, acquaintances, and students that he knew. Shem was always quick with a smile and witty comment and strove to help others whenever he could. He will be sorely missed by all those who were lucky enough to know him.
A viewing will be held at Nelson Funeral Home, 162 E 400 N, Logan, from 6:30pm – 8:30pm on Thursday June 23.
Another viewing will be held Friday June 24 from 9:00am – 10:30am at the Wellsville Stake Center of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 30 South Center Street, Wellsville. This viewing will be followed immediately by the funeral service at 11:00am.
Shem will be interred at the Wellsville City Cemetery.
Condolences and memories may be shared with the family at Nelson Funeral Home.
