Beverly Stephen Smith
February 9, 1936 – January 31, 2020
Beverly Stephen Smith (Steve) went home to be with the Lord on Friday January 31, 2020 in the arms of his loving wife, Adele Smith after a very courageous battle with cancer for the past year. Steve and Adele have been residents of Lake Monticello since their marriage five years ago. Steve was born February 9, 1936 in Greenville, TN; the only son of Francis (Bus) and Mary Lee Islar Smith. Steve graduated from West Virginia University with a Master’s Degree in Agriculture. He worked many years as an Extension Agent both in West Virginia and Virginia. He will be remembered by the many farmers he helped in both areas. He received many awards and honors for his work in the agriculture field. One of his favorite memories was of the time he spent driving a tractor trailer for Burns Motor Freight while waiting to be called into the Army. He received an Honorable Discharge in 1965. Steve is survived by his wife, Adele of Lake Monticello, VA, two sisters Sara Jones of Virginia Beach VA, and Sherry Hurt of Glade Spring, VA, two daughters, Lisa Smith of Barboursville VA, Ella Rusyniak of Richmond, VA, four step children Wayne Loudermilk of Charlottesville, VA, Diane Loudermilk (Rusty Nobles) of Williamsburg, VA, Nancy Lewis (Larry) of Ashland, VA, Laura Salzman, (Glenn) of Palmyra, VA as well as several step grandchildren and special family friend Marie Jones of Lake Monticello, VA. A funeral service will be held at Mount Eagle Baptist Church on Tuesday February 4, 2020. Family will receive visitors beginning at 10:00am, with service at 11:00am. Interment will take place February 5th at Mountain View Cemetery in Marlinton, WV. In Lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to the Lake Monticello Rescue Squad, 14 Slice Road, Palmyra, VA 22963. The family would like to thank Dr. Ken Ballew, the staff at UVA Emergency Department, the members of the Lake Monticello Rescue Squad as well as all of his caregivers over the past several months. May God bless you.
