Rosemary Kwitowski Smith, 74, of Erie, passed away peacefully on Sunday June 7, 2020 at St. Vincent Health Center. She was born in Erie on August 28, 1945 a daughter of the late Edward "Jocko" and Mary Kwitowski.

Rosemary graduated from Erie Tech and worked at Erie Technological Products for many years. She was the manager of Fan Fever at the Millcreek Mall for several years. Most recently she worked at Walmart for 15 years until her retirement. She was a member of Holy Rosary Catholic Church. Her absolute favorite hobby was shopping and attending household sales with her best friend. She was the master of finding the best deal! Her favorite place in the world to go was Disney with her granddaughters. She especially loved spending time with her granddaughters, who were her pride and joy, and attending their different events. She was their biggest fan. Her family was the center of her universe and there wasn’t anything that brought her more happiness than knowing they were happy.

Survivors include her husband, Byron R. Smith; two sons, Jamie Smith and his wife, Carrie, of Erie and Christopher Smith of Pittsburgh; two granddaughters, Jensen and Addison; two brothers, Leon and Patrick Kwitowski, and many nieces and nephews.

Dear Byron and family,
My deepest sympathy to all. This picture brought back so many memories of “Sissy”,my older cousin, that I looked up to and adored. I loved living a few doors away and as her little cousin I loved watching her and wanted to be like her. She took me to the beach many times (Beachcomer) where Byron would also be at times. She was a beautiful person with the sweetest voice and kindest heart. Byron and Sissy were a beautiful couple. My deepest sympathy to everyone as this world has lost a beautiful person. May God bless all of you during this difficult time. With love your way today, Francine Kwitowski Cerami. (North Carolina)
