To All Persons Interested in the Estate of Lesley Wayne Smith, Decedent:

On March 5, 2020, the last will of the decedent having been admitted to probate, Dennis G. Smith was appointed the personal representative of the estate of Lesley Wayne Smith, decedent, by the Probate Division of the Circuit Court of St. Francois County, Missouri. The personal representative's business address is: 2920 Old Vandergriff Rd., Park Hills, MO 63601. The personal representative's attorney's name and business address is: David Mayhugh, PO Box 557, Farmington, MO 63640.

All creditors of said decedent are notified to file claims in court within six months from the date of the first publication of this notice or if a copy of this notice was mailed to, or served upon, such creditor by the personal representative, then within two months from the date it was mailed or served, whichever is later, or be forever barred to the fullest extent permissible by law. Such six-month period and such two-month period do not extend the limitation period that would bar claims one year after the decedent's death, as provided in Section 473.444, RSMo, or any other applicable limitation periods. Nothing in Section 473.033, RSMo, shall be construed to bar any action against a decedent's liability insurance carrier through a defendant ad litem pursuant to Section 537.021, RSMo.

Receipt of this notice by mail should not be construed by the recipient to indicate that the recipient necessarily has a beneficial interest in the estate. The nature and extent of any person's interest, if any, can be determined from the files and records of this estate in the Probate Division of the above referenced Circuit Court.

Date of the decedent's death: October 30, 2019

Date of first publication: March 16, 2020
