Emaline Marie Smith slipped peacefully into the arms of our lord Jesus Christ on May 30th, 2020.
Emma was born in Eufaula, Ok on March 26th, 1941 to Fines and Carrie Smith.
The first thing everyone remembers about our dear Emma was her generous spirit. She loved holidays and decorated her house for each one. Christmas was her favorite, She was always so excited to see the kids faces when they opened their gifts and could never usually wait for Christmas Day. It truly gave her joy to give!
Emma was very active in church and could beat anybody in bible trivia. She enjoyed gospel singings and bible studies at her church.
Her laugh was loud and contagious, When she laughed, she laughed til she cried.
She loved music and being in a wheelchair did not stop her from dancing and flirting with the musicians that she saw perform. She loved her sweets and drank Coca-Cola like it was going out of style. She never went anywhere without her makeup on. Her favorite pastime was going to yard sales, especially with her sisters. She loved to write letters to many different people and always snuck little treats in her letters. She loved wrestling, sad movies, Elvis, pranking people, spoiling the kids in the family and even the neighborhood kids. She was a great cook, especially her bacon sandwiches, navy beans and cornbread and homemade donuts. She loved taking pictures, reading true crime books. She wasn’t shy about flirting with good looking men.
Emma is preceded in death by her brother, J.D. Smith, Sister; Elvarita Reynolds, Sister; Peggy Adams and Sister; Dollie Manning.
She is survived by her son; Michael George Kelly, Grandson; Aaron Ragsdale, Granddaughters; Charlotte and Sierra Kelly, Sister; Ruth Grimm and many other nieces and nephews who were close to her heart.
Losing Emma has left a void in our lives but we are so thankful that she is now free from pain and dancing her little legs off in heaven.
Special thanks to those at Grace living center in jenks, who went above and beyond and special friends who became family- Ramona Crouch and Stephanie Beba.
To anyone who showed kindness to Emma, Thank You!
