Obituary - Coleen Gayle Smith

Coleen Gayle Smith, 65, Nevada, MO passed away on Tuesday, January 24, 2023 at her home in Nevada. Coleen was born May 18, 1957 in Quincy, IL to Coy and Lona (Sweet) Derenburger.

Coleen had a gypsy soul, she loved to rock out to “old school” music, and loved playing board games with family, especially Yahtzee, Cribbage, and Farkle and loved going to casinos. She always lit the room with her spunky personality and was quick to crack a joke and quick with comebacks. There was never a dull moment!

Survivors include, one son, Paul Shearer, Nevada; one daughter, Tara (Smith) Jackson (Justin), Raymore, MO; a step-daughter, Krista Davis, Grandview, MO; six grandchildren, Mariah Shearer, Gage Shearer (Lacy), Sianna Shearer, Joana Shearer, Greyson Shearer and Payton Shearer; four great-grandchildren; and a Soul-Sister, D’Ann Essex. She was preceded in death by her parents and two sons, Gene Shearer, and Scott Shearer.

A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
