I remember Mrs. Smith as a welcoming parent who put up with us hanging around her house. She made my prom dress my senior year! She didn't put up with nonsense, but she was always supportive and caring. I know she will be missed by all who love her. Her family was blessed to have her in their lives! My heartfelt sympathy for all her family and friends!
