The resolution noted Kleinsmith’s marriage to Stanley Kleinsmith in 1936 followed by 60 years of marriage, the births of her two sons two grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, her membership in Phi Beta while at Capital University, her membership in Eastern Star, her graduation with a degree in music, her many years playing and teaching piano and organ, her move to the High Country in 2007 and some of her favorite pastimes, including visiting the theater, playing piano, traveling and dining.
Joining Kleinsmith at the part were many friends from around Western North Carolina and family members, her son Steve Kleinsmith and his wife, Elaine Kleinsmith, and grandson Darin Kleinsmith.
