Aelise Dailey Smith, age 92, passed away on May 9, 2023, at Myrtle Beach Manor in Myrtle Beach SC, where she was lovingly cared for by the compassionate MB Manor and Hospice staff. The family wishes to express their grateful appreciation for the care Aelise received.
Aelise was born in High Point, NC on April 13, 1931, to the late Cecil Egbert Dailey and Sybil Edna Reddick. She will be joyfully reunited in heaven with her late husband: Jerry A. Smith, her brothers: Ray Dailey and Charlie Dailey, and her nephew: Michael Dailey.
She is survived by her daughter: Tracey Smith Broome (Gerry), granddaughter: Wesley Madison Broome, and brother Judson Dailey (Bonnie). She would also want us to mention her beloved nieces and nephews: Mickey, Cathy, Lynn, Cheryl, Brian, Kandi, Jason, Marty, Danny, Kenneth, Mike, Brenda Gayle and their many children. She loved them all.
Jerry and Aelise moved from High Point to Myrtle Beach SC in 1963 with their daughter, Tracey and lived there for the remainder of their lives. Aelise loved the Myrtle Beach community and formed many lasting friendships. She was an active member of the First United Methodist Church and a loving partner in life with her husband. My mom loved all things beautiful. She passed on to me a great appreciation for art, music, theater, antiques, books, gardening, and the amazing beauty in nature. I will always be grateful to her for pointing out the wonder of a little bird, the colors in a sunset, the seashells on the beach (she saved the first shells I ever picked up on the beach!) and the majesty of the mountains and the sea.
Most of all, Aelise loved the Lord. She was happiest in his church, singing hymns, reading her Bible, quoting scriptures, and saying her daily prayers. It is a comfort to know she will be in Heaven now with those she loved most, and her soul will rest in peace.
There are no plans for a service at this time. Interment will be at Floral Garden Park Cemetery, High Point NC in the mausoleum next to her late husband Jerry A. Smith.
Memorials may be made to First United Methodist Church of Myrtle Beach Music Program.
