Mary Ann Soileau Smith, age 82 of Travis Peak, Texas, passed from this life on June 18, 2020 after a short illness. Mary Ann was born in Jennings, Louisiana to Alie Soileau and Anna Mae Fontenot Davis. She grew up in Galveston, Texas and graduated from Ball High School in 1956. She worked as a switchboard operator for Santa Fe railroad in her teens until she met and married her sweetheart David Lynn Smith on November 7, 1956. David was in the Air Force stationed in Alaska and married Mary Ann while on leave in Galveston.

Mary Ann and David lived in various countries, including Tokyo, Japan and Berlin, Germany. David’s tenure with the Air Force included serving during both the Korean and Vietnam wars. They had three children while he served and Mary Ann cared for the family. After David retired from the Air Force and settled in Austin, TX in 1972, Mary Ann went to work for IRS and retired in 1989. She was a loving wife and mother and a devout Catholic. Her grandsons brought her joy and she loved them all dearly. She was a wonderful cook and passed many of her recipes down to her family, her gumbo recipe is the best. She loved spending time with her family especially at the beach, which was her happy place.

Mary Ann is preceded in death by her husband David Lynn Smith, brother Nujie Soileau and parents Anna Mae Fontenot Davis and Alie Soileau. She is survived by her daughters Cynthia Ann Marie Smith Wilder, Judith Lynn Smith Allen and son David Lynn Smith II.

Dear Cindy, Judy, David & Family,

Sending you all our love and most heartfelt sympathy during this sad time. I loved your sweet Mom so much ~ what amazing memories we have of our families all growing up together in Germany and then again in Texas. You all are so very dear to us. Your mom was just precious and such a wonderful person & friend. My heart rejoices knowing your parents are together again in Heaven. May God bring you all comfort and strength.

We met Mary Ann, David and their wonderful family in Berlin, Germany back in 1968. Our families became very close and we followed them to Austin after we retired. We felt as close as though we were actually related and shared many wonderful times together, both in Germany and here in Austin. We enjoyed their company on many fun filled and happy days here at Lake Travis. Mary Ann was always a gracious host even when she had to put up with some of our more outrageous shenanigans – like when Smitty, her brother Nujie, and I built the infamous “Cajun Boat Dock” behind their lake house. She always had a twinkle in her eye even when scolding us and we loved her for it. We will miss her just as we missed her beloved Smitty. We know they are together again and maybe even with Doug and Sue Branch. We miss them all. May God Bless the Smith Family.
