Melissa “Anne” Raeburn-Smith, 66, of Spring Lake Heights passed away peacefully on June 14. She was born in 1952 to the late George and Lillian (nee Raeburn) Smith. She is predeceased by her brother, John Smith. Surviving are her daughter, Rebecca Logan and her husband Collin from Arlington, VA. The world has lost a vibrant soul who loved the beach, her cats, photography, Dunkin Donuts coffee, and rock climbing. She will be long remembered as a good mother and friend. The family requests that memorial donations under Melissa’s name be made to the Treatment Advocacy Center. The family also thanks Coral Harbor Nursing and Rehabilitation for the deep love and kindness they afforded Melissa.

“For oft, when on my couch I lie

In vacant or in pensive mood,

They flash upon that inward eye

Which is the bliss of solitude;

And then my heart with pleasure fills,

And dances with the daffodils.”
