Obituary for MAGGIE L. SMITH

Maggie Lucille Smith, age 88, was born on January 6, 1929 in Drury (Lothian), Maryland. She was the last survivor of eight children (five males and 3 females) born to the late Charles and Agnes Davis. After many years residing in Lothian, Maggie answered God's call and entered into eternal rest on October 25, 2017.

Maggie received her early education at Bristol Elementary School in Lothian, Maryland. In 1945, she graduated from the historic Wiley H. Bates High School, Annapolis, Maryland. Thereafter, she started her career with the federal government and was employed with the Bureau of Engraving and Printing; The Pentagon; and concluded with the Department of the Army, where she retired as a supervisor in the Military Personnel Center. She dedicated 34 years of service prior to retiring. During her tenure with the Department of Army, she was awarded several Outstanding Achievement Awards, Sustained Superior Performance Awards, and numerous Letters of Appreciation.

In 1950, Maggie was united in holy matrimony to Samuel E. Smith. From this union they were blessed to rear five children, Alvin (deceased), Tyrone (deceased), Samuel Jeffrey, Veronica (deceased), and Sylvia.

Maggie was a lifelong member of Sollers United Methodist Church where she was a faithful and dedicated member. At an early age, she joined the church and attended Sunday School. She was an active member of the Silver Leaf Circle for 50 years and served as the vice president, secretary, and scripture reader. She was also an active member of the United Methodist Women, where she served as the assistant treasurer. Her talent led her to acting in plays and pantomiming with a group of fellow church ladies, and was requested to do a solo performance. She remained a faithful servant to her church and participated in numerous fundraising programs and made significant contributions to other functions.

In addition to her service to church, Maggie also enjoyed reading and spending quality time with her family, especially with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, to whom she adored. Those who knew her best will remember her for her caring, supportive, and compassionate ways. You could always depend on Maggie!

Maggie leaves, to cherish her memory, her loving and devoted husband, of 67 years, Samuel E. Smith; children, Samuel Jeffrey; Smith and Sylvia Perkins (Christopher); grandchildren, Monica Butler (Wayne), Breenna Smith, Anthony Blair, and Arianne Smith; great-grandchildren, Wade Tyler II, Wayne Butler II, Wryan Butler, and Tamara Blair; sister-in-law, Shirlean Davis; a niece whom was like a sister to her, Mary Wallace; devoted cousin, Shirley Gross; and a host of other nieces, nephews, cousins, and dear friends.
