Obituary for Audrey Smith

Audrey Smith, age 79, passed away Wednesday, January 1, 2020 in her loving home in Virginia Beach surrounded by family. She was the wife of John Smith. They were married for 62 years, and six children were born from this union. Born September 8, 1940 in Jamaica Queens, New York, she was the daughter of Malachi and Louise Pate.

Audrey enjoyed sharing creative hobbies with her friends and family. Working with her hands brought her absolute joy and she was masterful. With a delightful and giving spirit, she offered help to anyone in need. Some of those hobbies include cooking, carpentry, painting, sewing and improving the lives around her. Her best memories are gathering in the kitchen cooking for the family over laughs and music. Her personality lit up a room and filled it with love, and light. Everyone flocked to her, and she welcomed them all. She will be most remembered as the matriarch of the family and the anchor that kept us connected in rough storms as well as tranquil seas.

She is predeceased by her younger siblings Barbara, Theresa, Aloma, and Malachi Jr. She is survived by her oldest sister, Katherine Dennis, who will miss her dearly and treasure their unbreakable bond. She will be mourned by her husband John Smith, children: John Jr., Denise, Earl, Debra, Sharon, Crystal and their spouses Maple, Latoya, Joseph and Henry. Her twelve grandchildren: Sharnekia, Henry Jr., Charles, Crystal Nicole, Janell, Calvin, Tiffany, Shantel, Wesley, Christopher, Dwayne, Tyrell. Thirteen great grandchildren Jasmine, Tykee, Aiden, Eli, Ian, Nylah, Alexis, Emma, Michael, Julian, Jaxon, Christian, Kynleigh. Along with a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

The funeral service will be held at 11:00 am Saturday, January 4, 2020 in Oman Funeral Home, 653 Cedar Rd. Chesapeake, VA 23322. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. Interment will follow in Rosewood Memorial Park where her beloved niece Donna Edghill rests in peace now together. Friends are invited to share memories and sign the online guestbook at www.omanfh.com.
