June 12, 1938 - May 25, 2020
We lost our mother, Betty Lou Smith, on Memorial Day. She passed away peacefully at home on the farm surrounded by those she loved. Our hearts are broken. Growing up we were a family that always gathered together at meal time. The kitchen was the heart of our home, and mom was at the heart of the kitchen. In the summertime when the fields were full, so was the kitchen – anyone who worked on the farm was always welcomed at the table, and mom never let anyone leave hungry. She was a great cook, an even better baker, and a bit of an artist. Over the years, she designed dozens of beautiful wedding cakes with drapes of frosting, flowers, and fountains. Mom also designed floral arrangements and handmade greeting cards for family and friends. For more than a decade she served as pianist at the Antrim United Methodist Church and a 4-H advisor. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. We will deeply miss her beautiful smile, easy laugh, and kind soul. Memorial Day was always special to Mom. She took time each year to take flowers to the cemeteries and honor those who passed on before us. Now we will honor her and carry on the tradition. We take peace in knowing that dad greeted her at the gates and they are together again. She is preceded in death by her father and mother, Harry and Gladys Galloway, and husband, James Grant Smith. Jim & Betty were married on January 30, 1959, until his passing on September 10, 2015. She is survived by her children Susan Harper, Connie (Bob) Daugherty, Jim (Kelly) Smith, and Tina (Karl) Guegold; grandchildren Tom (Arin) Harper, Scott Harper, Kali Smith, Ben Guegold and McKenna Guegold; great grandchildren Molly and Grant; and brother Charles (Marydell) Galloway, and niece and nephew Erin Cooper and Eric Galloway. We are grateful for the support and kindness shown by the Antrim Community Volunteer Fire Department and Hospice of Guernsey. Graveside services will he held at Antrim Community Cemetery on Thursday, May 28, 2020 at 1:30 pm with Mark Beros officiating.
