Mrs. Mary Elizabeth Smith Wyatt

She was a member of the First Assembly of God in Abingdon and worked at W-L Construction for 12 years. Family members take great joy in remembering her smile, and her sweet and spunky nature.

Mrs. Wyatt was preceded in death by her parents: George W. Smith and Amanda Polly Smith. She was also preceded in death by brothers: Thomas and Kenneth Smith and sisters: Dorothy and Vertie Mae Smith.
