Angeline’s hobbies included crocheting, quilting and gardening. She loved flowers and her home was decorated inside and out with them. Her family was very important to her and she enjoyed every minute with them. Those grandchildren were quite special and she loved for them to be around. The word granny was most precious to her. She loved to can and preserve jelly and her blackberry cobblers were the best and the family was happy to share in the tasty treat. Angeline’s church, Alluwe Baptist, and the church family was very much a part of her life and she attended as long as her health would allow.

A wonderful mother, granny and friend, Angeline will be missed by all that knew her. Those family members that survive include her children Bobbie Smith and her husband Eugene of Big Cabin and Betty Helton of Vinita; her grandchildren Angela Smith and Russell Smith both of Big Cabin; her great-grandchildren Christopher Williams, Michael Smith, Brenda Smith and Zach Smith.
