Mary Lou Carruth Smith, age 88, passed away Thursday, December 14, 2017 in Burleson TX at the home of her niece Sherry Mathews.

Visitation will be 6:00pm to 8:00pm, Monday December 18, 2017 at Bratcher Funeral Home in Denison, TX

Funeral services will be 10:00am, Tuesday, December 19, 2017 at Bratcher Funeral Home Chapel in Denison, TX with burial following at Cedarlawn Memorial Park in Sherman, TX with Basil McClure officiating.

Mary was born June 29, 1929 to Robert Clark Carruth and Vera Price Carruth in Bells, TX. She played basketball and graduated from Savoy High School. She worked for the phone company, as did her sister Floydean and her future sister-in-law Ann.

Mary married Floyd O. "Smut" Smith in November, 1950. They enjoyed almost 65 years of marriage until his death in July 2015.

Aunt Mary and Uncle Smut didn't have children of their own, and enjoyed being involved in the lives of their nieces and nephews, and their families. Three generations of our family were able to enjoy them. We wish all kids had an Aunt Mary and Uncle Smut in their lives.

Mary was preceded in death by her parents, Clark and Vera Carruth; brother Robert A Carruth and wife Ann, sister Floydean Sutherland, and Mary's beloved husband Floyd O. "Smut" Smith.

She is survived by her nieces, nephews and their extended families: Mel, Bill and Max Carruth, Lea Ann Hodge and Sherry Mathews, and sister-in-law Jackie Smith, brother-in-law Bob Sutherland, as well as many wonderful and kind neighbors and church friends from Park Avenue Church of Christ.

Special thanks to niece Lea Ann for her help and care the past 2 years since we lost Uncle Smut and to dear friend Daisy Miller, who was always there for Aunt Mary.

"Thank you for the love, fun times and support through the years. Now it's your time to rest". ?? Give Uncle Smut a big hug for us!
