Georgene C. Smyth went to be with the Lord on March 16, 2021, with her family by her side.

Georgene was born on May 30, 1930, to Don and Imogene Dixon. She was raised in Deming, NM, where she graduated from Deming High School. That is where she met her husband, Fred D. Smyth. After the passing of Fred in 1985, she moved to Roswell.

Georgene loved adventures with her family – family vacations, special events, camping, hiking and just being together with them. Other than the Lord Jesus, her family was the most important part of her life. Georgene had four children and was always busy sponsoring and attending all the events. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were her greatest joys. She made sure she attended all their graduations, weddings and special events.

Georgene loved the Lord Jesus and was a charter member of Grace Community Church. She later moved to Christ’s Church to worship with family. She loved both churches and considered both her church family.

She was also a member of the local Potter’s Guild and, along with making beautiful pottery pieces, she also taught many children about pottery. She even took a potter’s wheel to churches to do events with the children.
