Obituary: Vesta “Delores” Smith, daughter of the late Clyde and Sarah (Sikes) Jones, was born on May 22, 1923 in Norwood, Missouri, and went home to be with her Lord on July 24, 2013 in the Mercy Hospital in Springfield, Missouri. She was 90 years of age.
During her lifetime, Delores held many positions that helped support her family, including babysitting her grandchildren.
Delores and Harvey made the Norwood and Macomb area their home for many years. In later years, they sold their farm at Macomb and moved to Mansfield, where they made their home. Following Harvey’s passing, Delores lived in Rogersville and Ozark, Missouri.
Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband: Harvey Smith; two sisters: Phyllis Odle and Neva Fakes; and by three brothers: Gorman, J.D., and Gerald Jones.
Gayland Jones and his wife, June, of Norwood, Missouri and Jim Jones and his wife, Betty, Odessa, Missouri; four grandchildren: Rene McClure, Doug Smith, Wendy Swope, and Jason Smith; nine great-grandchildren; three great-great grandchildren; and other relatives and friends.
Delores’ love and kindness will be truly missed by all who knew her. Her memories will live in our hearts forever.
