Savannah Smith Obituary
On Sunday, October 8, 2023, the heavens gained another angel as Savannah Grace Smith departed from this world, having bravely battled a brief illness. Born on June 26, 2022, her time on Earth was short, but her impact was profound.
The treasured daughter of Nicholas Smith from Baton Rouge and Jenna Fritscher of Lafayette, Savannah’s presence brought immeasurable joy to their lives. In her brief journey, she was surrounded by the love of her five siblings: Mark, Jeri Lynn, Graham, Michael, and Harris, each of whom cherished every moment with their youngest sister.
Her paternal grandparents, Randall and Kathleen Smith of Baton Rouge, and maternal grandparents, Mike and Pam Smith of Lafayette, doted on Savannah, filling her world with love, stories, and warmth.
Despite her young age, Savannah’s vibrant spirit touched many. Her infectious laughter and radiant smile brightened the simplest of activities. She took great pleasure in her trips to Simple Joe’s Cafe, where breakfast outings became cherished family memories. Walks with her father and brothers, adventures to the farm, and playful Sundays at school were her most treasured moments.
Savannah’s passing leaves a void that words cannot describe, but the love and happiness she spread in her short life will be remembered forever. As we come together to celebrate her life, we find solace in the memories and the knowledge that she is now at peace. Rest in the embrace of angels, dear Savannah.
