Marceline Smith Combe, loving wife, mother, aunt, grandmother and great grandmother passed away on November 11, 2017. She was born August 23, 1927 in Idaho Falls to Vernard and Willamelia Smith. She graduated from Ogden High School and served as Student Body Vice President. She graduated Magna Cum Laude in Education at the University of Utah.
She and Max Combe were high school sweethearts and were later married. She taught at Meadowbrook Elementary in Bountiful. She is survived by her three children, David, Kathy and Jeff, her brother Coleman Smith and sisters Valerie Daniger, Carol Holloway plus 7 grandchildren and 18 great grandchildren.

Mom was a prodigious reader. Our best memories of our darling mother include mom always had a book in her hand, a cross-world puzzle under way, and a difficult cryptogram nearby knowing she would soon unlock its secrets. She was sensitive, witty, and intelligent and her family learned many valuable lessons from her 90 years. We adored her and will miss her greatly.
There will be a family and friend gathering at Wasatch Lawn at 10:00, Saturday November 18th.
