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 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.
