ALLENWOOD — Carrie K. Smith, 94, of Allenwood, went home to be with Jesus on Thursday, Oct. 25, 2012, after a short stay at the Buffalo Valley Lutheran Village, Lewisburg.

Carrie, a daughter of the late Harry and Helen Long, was born on Oct. 31, 1917, in Sunbury. On Dec. 20, 1939, Carrie was united in marriage to Alvin W. Smith, who preceded her in death in 1970.

Carrie was a founding member of the former Spring Garden God’s Missionary Church in Allenwood and a member at the time of her passing of New Columbia God’s Missionary Church.

She later worked in a sewing factory, the Montgomery Mills, and lastly at the Milton Shoe Factory. Carrie was a remarkable seamstress, enjoyed making quilts and was an avid crocheter. She made afghans for nearly every member of the family.

She is survived by one son, Paul R. Smith and his wife, Marlene, of Allenwood; one brother, Clyde Long and his wife, Kay, of Northumberland; and four grandchildren, Gary Smith and wife Cathy, of Mifflinburg, Cynthia Bargerstock and husband Jeffrey, of Massillon, Ohio., Richard Smith, of Boynton Beach, Fla., and Alexia Smith, of Allenwood.

Carrie was preceded in death by siblings Sara Sweigart, Marie Brubaker, Grace Long and Myles, Glenn and John Long.
