Preceded in death by great-grandfather, Bennie Peoples; great-grandmother, Ceola Marshall; stepfather, Micheal A. Smith; uncle, John Roby; and brother, Louis Smith. She leaves to forever cherish her memory: her mother and father; her grandmother, Bettye Roby (J.W. Roby); grandfather, Melvin A. Brown; brothers, Anthony and Rodriguez, James Smith, and Michael A. Smith; sisters, Brittany Fluellen and Michelle Higgins; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Maria grew up a very happy child. Quiet and humble always, with that award winning smile and those one of a kind squinted eyes. Maria attended Walnut Ridge High School where she found happiness in marching in the band for the Scots. She later moved on to be in a relationship with her life partner, wife, Tavia Monet Gentry, whom she loved dearly for 12 years. Maria loved music and thunderstorms. The rain was always so serene to her. She touched many hearts far and wide and always offered a helpful hand or some friendly advice with a smile.
Maria will be missed, but she was highly favored and God called her home. Rest easy, Angel.
