Kathy Smith passed peacefully from this earth and into heaven on February 26, 2019 at the home of her daughter in Madison, Mississippi. Kathy was born in Union, Mississippi on August 20, 1936, to Thomas Eber Wooten and Allene Byram Wooten.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Thomas and Clarese Wooten of Natchitoches, Louisiana and S. J. and Allene Long of Vicksburg, her husband Thomas D. Smith, Jr., her sons Richard (Ricky) Sullivan and David Sullivan and her grandsons Tyler and Hadyn Smith.
She is survived by her daughter Reginia Zinke (George), sons Eddie Sullivan, and Thomas D. “Trey” Smith, III (Jennifer), her grandchildren, Robert Cody Goss (Sarah) and Addyson Smith, and her great granddaughters, Kathryn and Shelby Goss. She is also survived by her step children, Tim Smith, Sandy Fletcher and Keith Smith and their families and many loving cousins.
Kathy had two special requests for her funeral: that there be no flowers and no crying, for she has “gone home.” Her family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Hospice Ministries, 450 Towne Center Blvd., Ridgeland, MS 39157.
Visitation will be 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Friday, March 1, 2019 at Glenwood Funeral Home with services starting at 11:00 a.m. in the chapel with Rev. Johnny Collins officiating. Burial will follow in Greenlawn Gardens Cemtery
