June Embla Smiley, age 1 1/2, went to be greeted by her ancestors on Sunday, June 14, 2020 at Niswonger’s Children’s Hospital. June was the daughter of Andrew and Yvonne Smiley, Bluff City, TN. June was a brave and strong fighter of HLHS. Her half heart worked twice as hard with not even half the help given to others with the same CHD. She was a sweet and happy sassy little girl who loved to laugh, smile and give side eye. She loved to laugh and grin at her older brother, Edward as he played with her. She loved many things especially her stuffed unicorn that she would wrap her little fingers around it's iridescent horn. It would bring her comfort. She found joy in the little things like the sponges used to give her water little bits at a time. She loved to chew on these and hold them. Her favorite bedtime movie was Peter Rabbit and as the special little girl she was she loved Frozen, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, and Tangled. She was a well-known celebrity at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburg (UPMC). When she was home she loved sitting outside under the trees watching her brother, momma, and daddy play and work in the yard. June leaves behind many dear loved ones to carry on her legacy; her Momma and Daddy; big brother Edward Smiley; paternal grandparents, Sharon Rickman and Anthony and Susan Smiley; maternal grandmother, Debbie Childs; aunt, Amy Blide; uncle Brandon Smiley; special cousins whom she never got to meet Ameliana Childs, Sean Blide and Leila Blide. Several other family members and dear friends are also left to carry on her beautiful memory. The family would like to extend a special thank you to the many nurses, doctors, therapists, supportive care, and admin who loved her and supported the family during her illness. They became more like family. There will be a gathering and potluck at the family's home Saturday the 27th of June to celebrate June Bug's life and to say goodbye. Please contact Drew or Yvonne for more information.
