Irma Jean Smart was born on June 30, 1938, to Alma and Julia Smart in Shreveport, Louisiana, and passed away On Tuesday, October 24, 2023, in Bossier City, Louisiana.

Irma worked for Bell South, Poulan, K&B Drug and retired from K-Mart Pharmacy. After retiring she spent her time spoiling her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She enjoyed watching wrestling, doing word searches and puzzles, playing solitaire, cooking, and reading. She loved family get-togethers and spending quality time with her loved ones. She was the greatest Nana to her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and the only limitation she faced with them was that she only had one lap and couldn’t hold and snuggle them all at the same time. Her family was a big fan of her cooking and always looked forward to her famous potato salad. The one dish she made that got more attention than that potato salad was the green pecan pies she once served for Christmas over 35 years ago. She loved her family more than anything else and she made sure they knew and felt it. She will be dearly missed by them all.

Irma was preceded in death by her father, Alma “Red” Smart; mother, Julia Yarborough Smart; brother, Russell Smart, and sister, Alice Smart Aultman. Left to cherish her memory are her sons, Jeff Smart and wife, Marilyn, Eric Smart and wife, Ann; granddaughters, Kristin Laux and husband, Ryan, Jennifer Williams and husband, Kyle; grandson, Landon Smart; great-grandchildren, Brianna and Bailey Laux, Piper, Kinley, and Jackson Williams; sister Barbara Ann Woods, and numerous nieces, nephews, and loved ones.

Honoring Irma as pallbearers will be Ryan Laux, Kyle Williams, Hal Curley, Jody Williams, Jeff Sepulvado, and Greg Brunson.

The family would like to express special thanks to Dr. Scott Mighell and staff for the care given to Irma over the years and also to the staff at Colonial Oaks Rehabilitation Center all the love and care given to Irma and her family during the last three months.
