Born May 31, 1950 in Harrisburg, she was the daughter of the late Harry Smith and Evelyn (Springer) Smith of Carlisle.

She was very crafty and was a school room helper to her children’s teachers.  A seamstress, she made suits for husband David, baby blankets for many of the children in the family, and baby bibs for many friends’ babies.
