SMITH, NATHA LEE  
NATHA LEE SMITH Natha Lee Smith passed away Dec. 11, 2014, at the age of 90. Natha Lee was born April 28, 1924 in Tyler, Texas, and passed away in her beloved city of Las Vegas. She was preceded in death by her parents, Horace and Millie Bynum, who she will join in Heaven, along with other loved ones, including her beloved husband, Hershel and beloved son, Steven. She is survived by her daughters, Sharon Harper (Tom) and Judy Artmann (Mark); and her grandchildren, Lindsay Harper-Hume (Jeremy), Jason Harper, Ashley Artmann and Bryan Artmann. She was affectionately referred to by her family as the "Yellow Rose of Texas" because she truly was beautiful and deserving of the comparison to a rose and was born in Tyler, Texas, the rose capital of the world. Natha Lee was an eccentric business woman, mother and "Nana" known for her signature painted lips, crimson nails and fabulous style. This Texas born beauty's humor and quick acumen could beat the wittiest of wits. In the final days of her life she continued to share her wisdom and favorite motto that, "Life is a picnic, as long as you know how to spread it." This poetic wisdom was a part of her daily life and her granddaughters can often be heard saying, "Well, you know that my Nana says about that . . ." Asked about the loss of her Nana, Lindsay, her first granddaughter, who she affectionately coined "Sugar," said that, "Her legacy will continue to live up through the people she loved and challenged" and that ". . . being with her Nana provided her with a childhood like no other." Never one to complain or worry, Natha Lee truly knew how to love and live life. Her footprint on this earth plane will be one that will never be forgotten. "Our dead are never dead to us, until we have forgotten them." - George Elliot. Throughout her life, Natha Lee imparted the qualities of style, strength, dignity and generosity and because of that she will live on and be indelible in the hearts and minds of all of those who knew and loved her so much. "Natha Lee Smith, you are unforgettable." Graveside services will be at 11 a.m. Sunday, Dec. 21, at Palm Valley View Memorial Park, 7600 S. Eastern Ave., Las Vegas.
