Anne F. (Malazik) Smiy, 97, a resident of Vincentian Home in North Hills formerly a lifelong resident of Irwin went to The Lord Tuesday, November 24, 2020. She was born June 28, 1923 to the late John and Mary Malazik. After graduating from Norwin High School in 1941, she continued her education at Duff’s Business Institute and began working for Westinghouse in East Pittsburgh. In 1951 she married her beloved husband of 63 years Paul R Smiy and started raising their family. She was a lifetime member of Immaculate Conception Church, Irwin and a member of Christian Mothers. Devoted to her family she cared for both of her aging parents for many years until their death. She loved her children and grandchildren with vacations frequently planned together. While Anne was fortunate enough to travel to many interesting places alongside her husband, she was most comfortable and happy at home. Anne’s past hobbies included gardening and playing cards which she enjoyed with friends in a card club, at home with her grandchildren and in her later years with her caregivers. While not one to seek attention, Anne was a past trustee and founder of the Paul and Anne Smiy Family Foundation supporting a wide range of charitable organizations in the community and was named a Lady Commander of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem in 2011. Her daily morning and evening prayers were a testament to her strong faith. She is survived by her son David Smiy and his wife, Brenda, of Chesterfield, Va., daughter Patricia Smiy of Irwin, Pa., and daughter Linda Turner and her husband, Joseph, of Sewickley, Pa., four grandchildren Allison Williams and husband Aaron, David Smiy Jr. and wife Katie, John Smiy, and Jeffrey Turner, four great grandchildren Grayson and Harper Williams, Adam and Landon Smiy, sister-in-law Helen Neal and her husband Ed of Germantown, Md., Sister-in-law Cathy Smiy of Fort Mill, S.C, and numerous nieces, nephews, grand nieces and nephews, and great grand nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband Paul R. Smiy and sister Mary Lou Spozio. The family appreciates the care provided by staff, nurses and aides at Vincentian Home in North Hills and the companionship and care from her many friends at Comfort Keepers in her later life. Following Anne’s example of concern for others, her Mass of Christian Burial and interment will be private due to the current pandemic. In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Immaculate Conception Church, 305 2nd Street, Irwin, Pa. 15642; or a charity of your choice. Entrusted with the arrangements is Ott Funeral Home Inc 805 Pennsylvania Avenue Irwin. To send condolences online, please visit

I remember walking home from school to your house Linda and your mom made homemade cream puffs. Your mom and dad were two of the most generous people I know. They were quiet and unassuming with their generosity! Beautiful picture of Ann, just how I remember her. May she Rest In Peace after a long, good earthly life. Hi to David and Patti, your whole family speaks such kindness and goodness!
