She was preceded in death by her husband, Morris Smith; daughter, Janet Lee Smith; son, Alan Smith; sisters, Lelia Bowie and Josephine Hall. Survivors include her son, William Smith; grandchildren, Shannon Weekly (James), Victoria Smith, Tabitha Smith; great-grandchildren, John, Emily, and Kaleb; sister, Christine Allen (Gene), and a brother, Raymond Jenkins. The family received friends on Friday, Aug. 12, 2022, from 12:30 until 1:45 p.m. at Hogg Funeral Home, and the funeral service began at 2 in the chapel.
