Katelyn “Katie Jo” Josephine Smith
Katelyn “Katie Jo” Josephine Smith, age 24, of Hollister, Missouri passed away suddenly August 20, 2020. She entered this life on September 2, 1995, in Aurora, Colorado, the daughter of Eric Smith and Deborah (Lindquist) Holden.

Enjoying the beauty of the Ozarks, Katie Jo's free time led her to exploring the lake and hiking the local trails. She was often found listening to her favorite music and taking selfies. Filled with laughter and an outgoing nature, Katie Jo was a social person who made friends with anyone. She will be forever missed and remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.
Katie Jo is survived by her mom, Deborah (Jeff) Holden of Hollister, Missouri; Eric (Lisa) Smith of Ridgedale, Missouri; sister, Jessica (Michael) Dale of Compton, Arkansas; brother, Gavin Smith of Hollister, Missouri; sister, Shelby (Brandon) Cronin of Branson, Missouri; and nephew, Asher Dale of Compton, Arkansas.
