If you had the good fortune of meeting her, you were just better for it. She was the beloved wife of 62 years of William H. Smith, Jr. and the daughter of the late Guy L. and Ethel Brownlee Stoner. She was born in Laurens County, South Carolina May 30, 1936 and moved with her family to Abbeville, SC at an early age. She graduated from Abbeville High School in 1954 as the Valedictorian of her class. She completed her nursing degree from the S.C. Baptist School of Nursing in 1957 as the second honor student. In 1979 she earned a B.S.N. degree from the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta. She retired from Central State Hospital as Director of Nursing of the medical surgical building after 32 ½ years of service. After retirement, she joined a group of Sweet Adelines in Macon, Ga. and enjoyed singing in concerts in many different venues and locations, including Austria and France. Her love of words, family, gardening, a strong spiritual faith as a lifelong Baptist, her gracious, yet feisty, funny, and generous spirit meant she rarely met a stranger. She spoke fondly of her memories of growing up and going to school in Abbeville, S.C. and enjoyed discovering her ancestral history. She lived life out loud and fought a fierce battle against stage 4 lymphoma for 5 years. Always up for an adventure, she will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her as she begins her next great adventure. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by sisters Shirley S. Hall, Anita S. Mosier and her brother Command Sergeant Major Guy Stephen Stoner. She is survived by her husband William H. Smith Jr., children Marilyn Smith Wright and husband Dan of Eatonton, GA. and William H.
