When tomorrow starts without me, don’t think that we’re far apart, for every time you think of me, I’m right here inside your heart.

Isabela Allard Smith, age 19, of Boca Raton, Florida, died unexpectedly on March 27, 2022.  She was the loving daughter of Felicia and Erik and sister of Sophia and Nicholas.


Isabela was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil on September 10, 2002, where she lived most of her life.  In Sao Paulo, she attended Graded School where she formed lifelong friendships, adored singing in the chorus, playing on the girl’s basketball team, and was a member of the Hipica Equestrian Vaulting Team. After Brazil, the family moved to Washington, D.C. and Switzerland before settling in Boca Raton. Isabela’s greatest gift was music. She could pick up lyrics after a single listen and play it beautifully on her guitar; she also composed hundreds of songs, with some being recognized in a recent widely attended Boca Raton music event.  Isabela’s family meant the world to her and she will be deeply missed. Although she left this earth way too soon, we are grateful that she has finally found peace in the hands of a loving God. 


A funeral will be held at St. Mary’s Catholic Church (the same church where Felicia and Erik were married) in Lakeville, Connecticut on Saturday, April 2 at 10:30 am with burial and reception to follow.  In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that contributions be made in Isabela’s memory to The For a Better Day Foundation, a non-profit committed to creating mental health awareness, breaking the stigma about mental illness and providing support for all those suffering from any mental health challenges,
