Dorothy Smith

November 23, 1937 — March 23, 2021

Carthage, NC

Dorothy Faye Hester Smith, 83, of Carthage, NC passed away on Tuesday, March 23, 2021. She is preceded in death by her parents, James Hester and Virginia Mangum Hester, her husband Robert L. Smith, one sister Anne Jervis, half brother Bobby Mangum, and one grandson, Heath Haire. Dorothy is survived by her son, Garry L. Smith (Anita) of Fuquay-Varina, two daughters, Debby Hales of Laurinburg, and Angela Stanley (Danny) of Bladenboro, one sister Jean Bridger of Mt. Pleasant, SC, two grandchildren, Scott Smith (Tricia) and Ethan Stanley and one great grandchild Graeme Smith.

Dorothy was a loving sister, wife, mother, and grandmother. She always had a positive outlook on life and never met a stranger. She enjoyed traveling with her husband, attending craft shows, singing and working in her yard. Some of her favorite moments were times spent at Christmas with her family. Her optimistic attitude and love of life will certainly be missed.
