On Monday, Nov. 4, 2019, Julie Smart passed from this life.

She left behind: her husband, Sonny Smart;

Her three children, Hailey Stephens, Savannah Smart and Richard Smart;

Her mother, Deborah Austin;

Her brother, John Austin;

Many friends and family.

Julie was a kind, loving person. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

She was very fond of a line from a poem a friend had written, “What are we, we members of this human race? I think many things, Great, Powerful, Commanding, but also Beautiful, Small, even Plain, and when at our best, Peaceful.”

Julie Smart is now, at her “best” with our Lord Jesus Christ.

The family received friends from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 10, 2019, at Biereley-Hale Funeral Home, located at 4650 Highway 411 in Madisonville. A memorial service followed at 3 p.m. in the Biereley-Hale Chapel with Pastor Dustin Wilds officiating.
