Carrie Lou Smith Folks
Birth: Mar. 29, 1906
Oconee County
Georgia, USA
Death: Jul. 7, 1997
Wayne County
Michigan, USA

Her parents were John Bud and Maggie Mae Bell Smith, she had six brother's James R. Smith, Charles W. Smith, Marshall L.Smith, John W. Smith, Robert L. Smith and Virgil E. Smith and five sister's Magnolia I. Smith Paige Annie L. Smith, Susie M. Smith, Glayds H. Smith Knighton, Elizabeth R. Smith Floyd. She passed away peacefully in her sleep at the ripe age of 90.

Carrie is my aunt, my mother's oldest sister. She was married to Coleman L. Folks for over 60 years when he passed over in 1973. My Aunt Carrie never had any children and was very close to her neices and nephews who she cared a lot about.

She worked at J.L.Hudson's in downtown Detroit, Michigan for over 50 years before they made her retire in 1982. She was one of the first African Americans who was hired by the J.L. Hudson company and she never missed a day or was ever late when she worked there. I believed that two or three years later after she retired they close that downtown store.

The Detroit Historical Museum in downtown Detroit has a display featured there for J.L. Hundson's Department Store and my Aunt Carrie was the only employee featured in the J.L. Hudson display.
