Susie Almond Smith, 93, of Union Point, GA, died Friday, April 20, 2012 at Sparta Health and Rehabilitation. A lifelong resident of Greene County she was born on September 5, 1918 in Penfield, GA, the daughter of the late Lewis Glenn Almond and Sara Maude Wilson Almond. She grew up and attended school in Penfield and at the age of sixteen married Harry Smith. For a while during World War II, they lived in Maryland. Because she loved to travel and meet new people, she had the perfect job as an insurance agent for Aflac. She enjoyed travelling so much it was nothing for her to be at the beach one day and in the mountains the next. She was a faithful member of the First United Methodist Church of Union Point and continued to be active as long as her health allowed.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Harry Smith in September of 1986; a grandson, Brian Smith; and her siblings, Oline Almond Mullis, Louise Almond Hughes, Ruby Almond Johnston and Emory Glynn Almond. She is survived by a son, Wilson H. Smith and his wife Sandra of Waynesboro, GA; very dear friends, Mary Meadows, Edith Barnhart and Ann Murphy all of Union Point, GA; her god daughter, Susan Higdon of Greensboro, GA; and her helper and companion, Lisa Wyatt.

I was deeply saddened to hear of Susie's passing.She was a lovely lady with a huge heart. We always had so much fun together. The last time I saw her was at my Mother's (MATTIE) 80TH birthday. She drove to Eatonton to help celebrate. My prayers go out to all of her family and friends. She will certainly be missed.

"Miss" Susie was an exceptional lady. I remember my early years visiting her. As a little girl I remember her sitting down with me to talk in kitchen where she always had cookies for me. She was also a wonderful neighbor to Aunt Shirley. The memories of Mr. Harry, "Miss" Susie, Smokey, the dog that caught any rock I threw, and Brain's visits will always be held in my heart and memories. I wish the good memories you have also will last forever.
