Annie May Smith Memorial Fund
Annie May Smith was tragically taken from us on Dec 13, 2021.
She was a loving wife, mother of 2 daughters, and grandmother of five. She loved Christmas and this year will be the hardest one we’ll have to endure without her.
The money contributed will go towards final expenses. Any amount over and above that will be donated to a cause she was passionate about-Crisis Pregnancy Centers of Tidewater. She spent hours sewing bibs, burp clothes, and baby quilts and blankets for the organization.
Thank you for your contributions. The family is overwhelmed by the outpouring of support. GOFUNDME
