Janet Smith passed away on January 21, 2024, at her home in Manteca. She was born on May 29, 1949, to Daniel and Clara Tuosto. She is now reunited with her late husband, Garry Smith, in heaven.
Janet is survived by her children Gene Smith and his ex-wife Lisa of Manteca, Joe Smith and his wife Julia of Manteca, and Christine Esposito and her husband Mike of Merced. She was a loving grandmother to eight grandchildren: Brittany, Cory, Melissa, Destiny, Joe, Amelia, Katie, Michael, and Cade. Janet was also a cherished great-grandmother to Katessa, Olivia, Justin, Grace, Zachary, Beau, Lily, Silas and Drew. She is also survived by her siblings Chris Tuosto of Santa Cruz and Barbara (Bobbie) Smith of Clear Lake.
Janet was a resident of Manteca for 50 years, but she was raised in Fremont, California, and attended Fremont High School. She dedicated her life to her family and raised her children with boundless love. Janet was known for her loving, outgoing, and social nature. She enjoyed shopping, indulged in a bit of gambling here and there, and was known for her spunky personality. Janet had a unique ability to make everyone feel welcomed and loved. She was the family matriarch and made every Christmas a memorable occasion. She adored her children and grandchildren and will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
P.L. Fry and Son Funeral Home is honored to serve the Smith family. A celebration of life will be held in her honor on Friday, February 9th at 2:00 p.m. at P.L. Fry and Son, 290 North Union Road, Manteca, CA.
