Thank you to the Smiths
The Smiths have gone. After a productive 25-year commitment to Iqaluit, this fine couple have both retired to southern Canada.
Diane Smith, who was suffering from cancer, came to the conclusion that she needed to be near special medical care in order to get proper treatment. During her many years in this community, she contributed as a volunteer to the church and for many other activities in town. The Smith kids did all their early education here and have gone on to successful careers. Richard Smith, a 25-year veteran of the high school as a shop teacher, helped and encouraged young people to develop skills that would enable them to find work in the ever-changing North. Both Richard and Diane made a difference to the life of the community. This brief comment is a thank-you to them.
