Ben Phillips,  associate pastor at Chestnut Mountain Presbyterian Church, reports that Mary Smartt, wife of Kennedy Smartt, went to be with the Lord May 21 at around 9:30 am. “We rejoice with Kennedy and his family that Mary is in the presence of her Savior,” Phillips wrote. “Please pray for God’s comfort and strength for them in the days ahead.”

There will be a Memorial Service to give thanks to God for her life on May 31 at 11am at Chestnut Mountain Presbyterian Church. The family will receive friends from 10-11 prior to the service.
