Obituary for LORETTA VIRGINIA SMITH

Loretta Virginia Jenkins Smith was born July 13, 1945, in Prince Frederick, Maryland, to the late Thomas Henry Jenkins, Sr. and Ruth Virginia Chase Jenkins. She was the middle sibling of three children. Loretta was educated in the public schools of Calvert County, Maryland. She graduated from William Sampson Brooks High School in June 1963.

On June 22, 1968, she was united in marriage to Arthur Smith. From this union, two daughters were born. Loretta loved her family dearly.

Loretta loved the Lord and joined Young's United Methodist Church at an early age. She served faithfully on the Finance Committee, sang on the choir, and did whatever she was asked in serving the church. She later became a member of Patuxent United Methodist Church when
Young's went to limited service. She was a faithful member, until her health began to fail, and sang on the choir. Her favorite hymn to sing was “Jesus on the Mainline, Tell Him What You Want". And, that's what she did. She always called on the name of the Lord.

Loretta had a quiet spirit but she was a warrior, not only in the church but also in the community. One of her goals was to bring more people to Christ. She was very concerned about the young people and the activities in her community. She would often testify and ask God and her Christian family for help in dealing with situations in her community.

When service was over, Loretta would fellowship with others but she had to leave on time. She could not miss her football games, especially if the Miami Dolphins were playing. She also liked playing cards, bowling, fishing and listening to oldies but goodies, the songs from the good old days.

She was blessed to have worked at the Calvert House as a nursing assistant, Springhill Lake
Apartments as a custodian, and held various retail positions until her retirement.

Loretta fought the good fight. She was called from labor to reward on August 18, 2016 at her home surrounded by love. She was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas Henry Jenkins, Sr. and Ruth Virginia Chase Jenkins. She leaves to cherish precious memories, two daughters, Terri Smith and Adrienne Smith of Huntingtown, Maryland, two granddaughters, Imani Patterson and Ayanna Mackall, two brothers, Thomas, Jr. and William Jenkins, Sr., a special nephew, William, Jr., former husband and lifelong friend, Arthur Smith, special friends, Gene and Catherine Long, Rose Holland, and Ruby Jones, a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, the Patuxent United Methodist Church family, and friends.
