Martha Kathleen Moore Smith was born in Butler, TN to Narvie and Myrtle Harmon Moore.

A 60 year resident of Boone, she died Monday January 21, 2019 at Deerfield Ridge Assisted Living in Boone.

She grew up on Timbered Ridge in Watauga County and attended Bethel Union School. Her graduating class still has reunions every year. She loved working with the public and was known by most locals that shopped at A&P, Heilig Meyers and Kmart. Her wonderful personality and mischievous smile made her a town fixture.

She was a member of Oak Grove Baptist Church. Her volunteer work included Girl Scouts, 4H and working with the elderly. Her social club was the Southgate Beauty Salon. She was known by friends and family as the party planner. No matter what the occasion you could count on her to make sure that everyone showed up and had a great time. We all have many great memories thanks to her hard work and planning.

Kathleen leaves with us her husband of 63 years, John C. Smith, brother, Jesse Moore and wife Betty, daughters, Angela Denton and Barbara Walz, grandchildren, Gabe Burleson, Elizabeth Neville, Ben Denton, Casey Denton along with nine great grandchildren and best friend Muffin.
