Daphine was born in Neshoba County, Mississippi, on April 13, 1929, to the late Rev. R. Curtis Smith and Vena Jackson Smith. Daphine was a gifted hairdresser and cosmetologist for over 40 years and she styled hair for countless members of our community. She was the owner of the Eastland Plaza Beauty Salon and was also employed as the hairstylist for Baldwin-Lee Funeral Home for many years.

From an early age, Daphine loved to dance. Her brother became a trained dance instructor and they enjoyed learning and performing all of the latest dance trends. One time their dance talent was good enough to win a Jitterbug contest. Daphine’s family was most important to her, and she enjoyed nothing more than cooking Sunday dinner for them. Some of her children’s fondest memories are those meals followed by the whole family playing games together. Lots of family gatherings and holiday celebrations were held at her home and her children's friends were always welcomed to join them.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brother, Bill J. Smith, and sister, Melba Kennedy. Survivors include sons, Roger Harrell, Steve Harrell (Jan), and Jeff Harrell; daughters, Vickie Russum (Joey Barnes), and Judy Tharpe (Tony); grandchildren, Chance Harrell, Kayla Chandler, Crissy Harrell, Josh Russum, Shayna Russum Holmes, and Lori Tharpe; and great-grandchildren, Lilah Harrell, Zoe Harrell, Joel Douglas Chandler, Caden Harrell, Kameron Moore, Angela Russum, Crews Russum, Bryce Russum, Maddox Russum, Molly Russum, Alexis Russum, Landon Nix, and Jackson Hamby.
