Saint Paul

Mally Smith, born July 25, 1928, passed away peacefully at the age of 93 on May 18, 2022. He is preceded in death by his parents and two sisters. He is survived by his loving wife of 67 years, Jane, sons Greg (Almida), Scott (Neysa), daughters Nora (Jim Schmidt), Jill (Dave Raymond), twelve grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren.

Mally was a WWII United States Army veteran. He graduated from Carlton College and later earned a master’s degree in Education from the University of Minnesota. He first taught in the Northfield Public Schools as well as the Oak Park-River Forest, Illinois Public Schools. After that, he became an Assistant Principal at St. Anthony Village High School, where he later taught 9th Grade Civics and coached several sports until his retirement.

We would like to express our heartfelt thanks to the staff at St. Anthony Park Home and Grace Hospice for the loving care they provided to Mally over the last 15 months. We will be forever grateful.
