Sylvia Smith

Sylvia Mae Evans Smith went to be with our Lord and her husband of 66 years, Percy C. Smith, on Friday, April 4, 2014, while sleeping peacefully at home with her family present and caring for her. Sylvia was born May 23, 1919 in Richmond, Va. Sylvia and Percy married on March 25, 1948. They relocated to Aiken, S.C. and eventually to Chattanooga and then to Soddy-Daisy, Tenn. for the last 44 years. Together they raised four boys with a love, devotion and dedication not seen in todays world. Kirk and Beth, Glenn and Kay, Dean and Joan, Gary &and Trina; along with their grandchildren, Clay, Kristen, Angela, Alan, Aaron, Alden, Chad, Ryan, Lauren, Jessica, Adam and Hannah; as well as their great-grandchildren; and Sylvias sister, Phyllis celebrate her life and the blessing it was to be part of her life. Sylvia spent the early years of marriage raising her sons. She started her career out of the house only after the youngest of the four boys had started school. Her family was the focus of her being. She was a beautiful Christian through her life example. The family will celebrate her life along with Percys later in the spring with a memorial service and dedication of a "Life" swing at the Flibeta Club Pavilion in Soddy-Daisy where they lived the last 44 years. The entire family gives so many thanks for having Liz Graham Allen come into our lives and for all she has done for this family. The care, support, prayers, nursing knowledge and love for Mom and Dad these last two years will forever be a comfort to us all. We could not have made this time such a comfort to our parents without her. The family request that expressions of sympathy be made as donations to the Hospice of Chattanooga who also provided wonderful service and care to both Percy and Sylvia. Online condolences can be made at Arrangements by Standefer-Reed Funeral Home, 50 May Road, Dunlap.
