Betty June Smith, 84, of Tyronza, Arkansas, passed away at St. Bernards Medical Center in Jonesboro on, April 17, 2022 at 9:30am. Resurrection Sunday, a most perfect day to bow at the feet of Jesus! Betty was born on June 14, 1937 in Waterloo, Alabama to the late William Franklin "Will" Price and Mary Ellen Sharp Price. She later moved to Mishawaka, Indiana and married Eugene Gilbert "Gil" Smith on July 3, 1965. They later moved to Tyronza and raised their family. She worked at Mid-South, Mfg. in Marked Tree where she was a production supervisor for 34 years. Betty loved her family and treasured the time spent with them all. Betty loved to cook for crowds and when the family got together, that's just what it was, a HUGE CROWD, but she loved every minute of it. She wouldn't eat until she knew everyone had an overflowing plate. She was a dedicated wife, mother, grandmother and friend. Betty loved the Lord and was of Baptist faith.
