She also was active in the community as a charter member of the Mifflinburg Civic Club and was a 50-year member of the Eastern Star.

Among her many talents and passions were family and friends, reading, handwork and crafts and baking and cooking. All were assured of good food and good company in her presence.

Smith, of Lewisburg; one grandson, Adam R. and his wife, Marijane Hackenberg, of Doylestown; and two great-grandchildren, Theodore E. and Mary Katherine Hackenberg.
