Margie Smith Obituary

Margie N. High Smith, 92 years old of South Bend, IN passed peacefully into the arms of her Loving Heavenly Father the afternoon of January 10th 2024. She was surrounded by her daughters as she passed from her earthly home.

     Margie was born on January 15th 1931 in Tompkinsville, Ky as the only child of Earl and Norene (Hedrick) High. She was preceded in death by her son Ken Tooley, (who was the light of her life), a precious great grand-daughter Norah Mammolenti, many loving aunts and uncles, and her best friend Sue Creech.

     She is survived by her two daughters Cathy Podell-Jones, Buchanan, MI., Sandy (Andy) Dlugosz, South Bend, IN., her son Don Smith, Niles, MI., four grandsons, Andy (Macaire) Podell, Adam (Stephanie) Podell, Eric (Tessa) Mammolenti, Scott (Megan) Mammolenti, nine great -grandchildren, and her cat MIss KItty.

     Margie loved all things of nature. She was a gardener who spent many hours turning her yard into a work of art. The beauty of her garden often brought many creatures to visit which provided many hours of pleasure for her. She loved painting, crafting, ceramics, photography and she played many competitive games of scrabble!
