Smith, 93, of Huckle Hill Senior Housing, a lifelong resident of the area, passed away peacefully on Thursday afternoon, April 16, 2015 at Pine Heights Nursing Home surrounded by her family. Mrs. Smith was born in Putney on September 11, 1921 the daughter of Watson and Kathryn (Kingsbury) Magoon. She was raised and educated in Brattleboro attending Brattleboro High School. She had been employed at the Holstein-Friesian Association working as a clerk and retired as a supervisor in 1986 following 23 faithful and dedicated years with the Association. Previously she had worked at the former Berkshire Fine Spinning Associates on Cotton Mill Hill. A woman of strong faith she was a longtime member of Vernon Union Church where she served as a deaconess and member of the church choir. Mrs. Smith enjoyed square dancing and was a member of the former Green Mountain Squares, held membership in the Silver Liners Line Dance Club and was active for many years with the Vernon Seniors. For several years she assisted with the town of Vernon monthly newspaper. Of her other leisure time activities she enjoyed gardening, her flowers, puttering around her former home on Stebbins Road. She especially liked music and never missed the Lawrence Welk Show. She was an avid reader and cherished time spent with her family. On August 1, 1942 in Brattleboro she was married to Floyd Smith. Her faithful and devoted husband of 56 years predeceased her on February 6, 1999. She is survived by two daughters, Mary Sawin and her husband Jesse of Athol, Mass., and Kathryn Knapp and her husband Richard of Brattleboro; two daughters, in-law, Patricia T. Smith of Brattleboro and Susan Smith of Easthampton, Mass.; a sister, Alberta Bellville of Brattleboro; nine grandchildren, Samantha (Rick) Falls, Michael and Melissa Waterman, David, Floyd (Penny) and Kevin (Rhonda) Knapp, Heidi (Sam) Clement, and Kristine and Karin Smith; 15 great-grandchildren, Daniel, Alisia, Ashley, Chelsea, Aaron, Ernie, Travis, Ava, Kiaya, Shana-Beth, Dana, Crystal, Kirstin, Christopher and Tyler; and many great-great-grandchildren; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
