Obituary for Ms. Heather Michelle Smith Gibbs

Ms. Heather Michelle Smith Gibbs, 34, entered into rest on September 9, 2020. She was preceded in death by her mother, Lori Opalewski Lavallee, her maternal grandfather, Daniel Melvin Opalewski, Jr, and her maternal great grandparents, Daniel Melvin and Martha Krewson Opalewski, Sr. 

Left to cherish her memory is her precious daughter, Brinleigh Kate Gibbs, of Warrenville, SC; her father, Dean Smith, of Augusta, GA; her maternal grandmother, Deborah Wolfe Opalewski, of Graniteville, SC; her sisters, Nikki Smith, of Charlotte, NC and Brittney Shealey (Brent), of Graniteville, SC; her aunt, Amy Hadden (Michael), of Graniteville, SC; her uncle, Christopher Opalewski, of Warrenville, SC; her great uncle and aunts, Darle Opalewski (Marylee) and Karen Newcombe, all of Clearwater, SC; her special cousins, Michelle Opalewski Atkinson (Lenny), of Graniteville, SC and Kerri Opalewski Lowe (Michael), of Warrenville, SC; her nephews Braxx and Brendon Shealey, of Graniteville, SC; her niece Kenley Belger, of Jackson, SC and her daughter’s father, Dony Gibbs, of Graniteville, SC 

Heather loved and valued her family. She always said that Brinleigh was her greatest blessing in her life. Her laugh and her silly, goofy sense of humor were contagious. Most of all, Heather will forever be remembered for her heart that was as beautiful as her smile. 

Considering the COVID 19 restrictions concerning the number of attendees at public gatherings, the family will have a private gathering to memorialize and celebrate Heather’s life. 

In remembrance of Heather, the family would love for you to share any memories or photographs that you may have. These can be shared to the funeral home website or Facebook page. 

The family request that in lieu of flowers, memorials to honor Heather may be made to a college fund for Brinleigh Gibbs, c/o Security Federal Bank.
