Jill Martin Smith Obituary

Jill Martin Smith, departed this life on January 28, 2024. Jill was a cherished wife, mother, sister, and grandmother who resided in West Columbia, South Carolina. Known for her kind and compassionate spirit, Jill worked in the medical field as an administrative professional, where she touched countless lives with her kindness and dedication. She was a woman of many passions which included camping, hanging out with friends, bird watching, and the exhilarating joy of riding the Harley with her beloved husband, Charlie. Her family was the center of her world, and she treasured every moment spent with her two grandsons, Grayson and Brayden. Jill also had a profound love for her two German Shepherds, Toby and Zelda, who were constant companions and brought her much joy.

Jill’s laugh and smile lit up the room. No one was more gifted than she at making people feel loved. To know her was to love her, and she simply loved to love.

Jill is survived by her loving husband, James “Charlie” Smith; their children, James (Lyndsay) Smith, and Shannon (Lee) Keisler; her sister, Angie (Wade) Fullwood; her nephew, Caleb Shelley; and her adored grandsons, Grayson and Brayden Keisler.
