Jean Mary (Darlington) Smith Obituary
JEAN MARY (DARLINGTON) SMITH Born July 25, 1930 in Schenectady, NY to Eugene and Beatrice (Allen) Darlington. She was the older of two daughters. Jean married Charlie Smith in Dec. 1950 in Richmond, CA. They were married 20 years. Jean and Charlie had four sons, Richard, Paul, Phillip and Brian. Central to Jeans life were her sons and they were a handful. She worked tirelessly to make sure they were cared for. She was proud of her children. With two children still at home, Jean returned to college and graduated from San Francisco State with a degree in early childhood development. Subsequently became a preschool teacher in the bay area. Jean loved children. Jean was a Christian and attended church faithfully her entire life, last attending Church on the Esplanade until her ill health prevented. Jean is survived by her four sons, Richard, Paul, Phillip, and Brian; sister Linda; grandchildren Darrick, Christina, Sarah, Carolyn, Robin and Julia; great grandchildren Jacob, Nathan, Ryan, Kaylie, Layla, Emily and Dillon. Graveside service will be held at 12:00 p.m. Friday, March 10, 2017 at Chico Cemetery. Send condolences online at NewtonBracewel.com..
