Elizabeth Ruth Smith Floyd
Birth: Nov. 23, 1925
Detroit
Wayne County
Michigan, USA
Death: Dec. 26, 2001
Detroit
Wayne County
Michigan, USA

Her parents were John Bud and Maggie Mae Bell Smith, she was the youngest girl of twelve children. James, Carrie, Marshall, John, Magnolia, Susie, Gladys, Elizabeth Ruth, Virgil, Charlie, Anna Laura and Robert Lee. She was a family oriented person, my mother was very close to her children and also close to her brothers and sisters.

She and my dad were childhood sweethearts, they were married July 12, 1944, they were together for over sixty five years. They have seven children, Vincent, Suzan, Bonnie, Lisa, Alisohn, Victoria and Lance.

She also has seven grand-children, Whitney (precedes her in death 2000) Nageela, Dijon, Cortney(preceded her in death 1976) Yavonne (passed 2005), Antoine and Donald. She also has eight great-grand-children Kurt, Brooklyn, Chelsea, Deja, Antoine, Bre'Anna(preceded her in death) and TaVonne.
She has a new great-grand son Dylan Alexander just born November 29, 2003. She would have adored him. Momma has two new great-grand children coming in April and September of 2005.
Update: Decari YaVonne born April 20, 2005 and Hailey Alisohn was born September 16, 2005.

My mother's family was from Athens and Watkinsville Georgia. My grandmother died when she was nine years old and my grandfather never married again so she was raised by her father and her older sister and brothers.

She adored her father, she called him Pa, he always visited her and his grandchildren everyday until he passed away in 1957. She always talked about him to me and my baby sister and brother because he had passed on by the time we were born. I never met him but it was like I knew him because she kept him alive to us, it was like my grand-daddy was still alive the way she taught us about him. John B Smith was her idol. She hardly ever talked about her mother, my grandmother Maggie Mae.

My momma was the best mother ever to me!!
