Mrs. Allie Mae Belle, age 96, passed into eternal rest on Friday, August 1, 2008, at Brown's Health and Rehabilitation Center under the care of Ogeechee Area Hospice in Statesboro. She was a native of Bulloch County, and was raised by foster parents, the late H.W.B. Smith Sr. and Amanda Love Smith, from a very early age to her adult life.
