At 3:13 a.m. on a recent Monday morning, Columbia Smith DuBose relinquished her long, brave fight for this life. Through a 7 year bout of illness, she met each progressive challenge with bravery, courage and great personal strength that is an example to us all.
She has honored us with her illustrious life created. She, the devoted friend, loving mother and wife, talented actor, perfomer and artist; Columbia was a force of spiritual evolution. She was the love of my life.
She is survived by her loving family – including husband Bill, daughter Heather Lewis, son Jason Dowell and sister Eileen Shaw. The spouses, in-laws, cousins, grandchildren and extended family and friends deserve their own chapter.
Friday, the 21st, we will celebrate Columbia’s life with a memorial service. If you are among her survivors and would like to honor her, please contact me on my cell and I’ll text you the event info.
