Ada Agnes Smith Obituary
Ada Agness Smith

Purvis, MS

Sunday afternoon, October 21, 2012 in the mid afternoon, Ada Agness Smith was called home to be with her Lord and Saviour. Born on June 4, 1917 to Bill Mack and Effie Mae Gipson, she was one of four daughters. She was happily married to Lonnie Wilson Smith for forty-seven years until he went home to Heaven.

She was truly a virtuous woman who lived her life serving God and others every day. She was a witness for the Lord, not only in her life, but also in her death. The legacy of how she lived her life is a true testament to who this wonderful lady truly was. Well known in her community for her Godliness and faithfulness, she was an active member of Church of God in Purvis, MS. Mama Smith, or "Mish" as she was so affectionately known, was a wonderful wife and mother, a fine Christian woman with a kind, gentle soul.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Bill Mack and Effie Mae Gipson; her husband, Lonnie W. Smith; her sisters, Alma Smith, Doris Cain, Joanne Burge; her son, Mack A. Smith; and one great grandson, Joseph Strider Smith. She leaves to mourn her loss Brenda Smith (wife of Mack A. Smith), Ray (Patsy) Smith, Joyce Smith Warren, Donnie (Judy) Smith, Sherri Smith (Benny) Hannaford and Dean (Lela) Smith, twenty-one grandchildren, thirty-two great grandchildren, and eight great, great grandchildren. She also leaves a host of in-laws which she loved as her own and a community of cherished friends and neighbors.

Ada Smith was a remarkable person who instilled some of herself in each of her family members. All agree that everything "good" in them can be attributed to Mish.

Mama Smith's memory and testimony will live on in and the hearts and lives of many.

Services will be held at 10:00 AM Saturday at Purvis Church of God. Visitation will be 5:00-8:00 PM Friday at the church.
