Birth: 1922-07-28 in Brooklyn, New York
Death: Sunday, March 17, 2013

Click to see full size photoWilliam Xavier Smith of Carson City, NV died March 17, 2013 at the age of 90 in his home in Maryland. He was born July 28, 1922 in Brooklyn, NY, the son of Charles and Mary Smith of Queens, NY. "Bill" was preceded in death by his parents; his wife of 50 years, Evelyn Smith, "Lyn" and his only child Robert Smith.

From an early age, it was evident that there were great things ahead for Bill. He grew up in Queens, NY, where he attended Catholic schools. He worked hard and graduated from Fordham University. Bill then joined the US Army where he served as a Sergeant in the Aleutian Islands. As always, he distinguished himself with his enterprising spirit, vibrant personality, and a great depth of character. After returning from his tour, he married his lifelong love Evelyn Olsen from Brooklyn, NY. Together they had one child, Robert Smith born February 4th, 1950.

In 1952 Bill decided to move west to Reno, NV. Bill then took a prominent position with the State of Nevada. He settled his family in a home in Sparks NV. Bill then brought his beloved Grandmother to Nevada to join his family, in a place he then called Home.

He became an essential figure in the community where he coached basketball, football, and boxing. Throughout his time in Nevada, he volunteered with many organizations including Kiwanis Club of Carson City where in 1973, he was presented the "Man of the Year" award. He was also instrumental in building the first senior citizen center in Carson City and also became a 4th degree Knight of Columbus. Bill was known always for his warm and generous heart and his selflessness with neighbors, family, and even those some may call strangers.

In 1978, Bill's son Robert and his wife Pamela Smith blessed him with a grandson Justin William. Bill was always a fun loving and thoughtful grandfather, venturing on many family vacations and opening a new world up to his grandson, Justin. He enjoyed nothing more than spending time with his family and friends. Bill was always extremely generous and selfless.

Even after his retirement, Bill was very active within his community. He was a leader and a friend to all that knew him. He had moved from leading and organizing activities for youth to organizing wonderful cruises for adults; cruises that were legendary and truly enjoyed by all. In an article written about Bill after his retirement entitled "An Unordinary Man", he was described as "…one part organizer, one part administrator, and one part hard-worker. He is one person who does it all."

In 2012, Bill married his longtime care giver and friend, Evelyn Vanhousen; who was the childhood and lifelong friend of his late wife Lyn. He was quite blessed to have Evelyn by his side, caring for him and helping him for many years. He enjoyed many years of traveling, was very active in his church, and treasured time with his grandson Justin W. Smith and great grand-daughter Gabriella.

Those that have known Bill have been graced with a courageous, thoughtful, generous, and virtuous friend. Bill was truly an extraordinary man. The world would be a far better place with more men like Bill Smith living in it. "Say not in grief: 'He is no more but live in thankfulness that he was." Bill is survived by his wife Evelyn Vanhousen, his grandson and granddaughter-in law Justin and Meghan Smith, and great grand-daughter Gabriella Smith, 2yrs.

The family will receive friends for Bill's Life Celebration on Saturday, March 23, 2013 from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m. at the Brinsfield Funeral Home, 22955 Hollywood Road, Leonardtown, MD 20650.

Click to see full size photoJanice Marie Cheseldine, 61 of Mechanicsville, MD died March 16, 2013 at her residence. Born August 26, 1951 in Leonardtown, MD she was the daughter of the late Bernard Anthony Wise and Dorothy Marie (Evans) Wise of Leonardtown, MD.

Janice enjoyed going to church at Living Word Community Church and fellowshipping with her church family. She was very talented and creative in many ways and enjoyed scrapbooking, stamping and making cards. Janice also liked to play music. Her instrument of choice was the bass fiddle, and her favorite type of music was Christian.

She loved baseball and her favorite team was the Washington Nationals. She never missed a game on television unless it was on a church night. A couple of years ago her son Scott picked her up for a surprise birthday night out. As they were driving by the Nationals Stadium, she told him one day she was going to go to a live ball game. He looked at her and laughed and turned into one of the Nationals parking lots and said this is your lucky day. From that moment on, she was one of their best fans. Her favorite place to vacation was spending time on the beach in Ocean City, MD.

For the past 37 plus years, she worked for the St. Mary's County Public Schools and retired in January 2013. She finished her career working at Benjamin Banneker Elementary School working with kindergarten students. She loved them all as if they were her own.

Janice is survived by her mother, Dorothy Marie (Evans) Wise of Leonardtown, MD; her husband, David W. Cheseldine; her son, Christopher Scott Cheseldine of Mechanicsville, MD; and siblings, Barbara E. Quade of Mechanicsville, MD, Thomas D. Wise of Brandywine, MD, Bernard E. Wise of Colony, TX, John E. Wise of Colonial Beach, VA and Joseph D. Wise of Hollywood, MD.

She was preceded in death by her father, Bernard A. Wise.
