Sue Smith, 73, of Washington, IL passed away at 10:35am Tuesday, January 14, 2020 at Farmington Country Manor in Farmington.
Sue was born May 1, 1946 in Springfield, MO to the late Howard and Beulah Caton. She married her high school sweetheart Ron Smith in 1965. He preceded her in death on August 19, 2017.
Surviving are two daughters Traci Smith (Kevin Donahue) of Brimfield and Toni Smith (Shea) of Kenosha, WI, sisters Judy Brasier of Pomona, MO and Terry Nicholson of Willow Springs, MO and brother Steve Caton of Pomona, MO.
Sue was a beautiful, fun-loving Mom who made her home a place where the neighborhood kids wanted to hang out. She enjoyed walking and talking with friends and neighbors, had a green thumb, an affinity for ice cream and loved to sing. Her natural talent for baking led her to a long career as the bakery manager at Thompson’s Food Basket and later retired from IGA in Metamora. Sue liked to spend her free time with her husband Ron watching the St. Louis Cardinals play and as members of several car clubs attending car shows in their Chevy Nomad.
Please join us for a celebration of her life on Saturday January 25 2:00p.m.–5:00p.m. at Ludy’s Kickapoo Creek Saloon in Kickapoo, IL.
