Nelda Smith

Nelda Kathryn Smith, 95, passed into eternal rest on September 27, 2019. She was born on November 23, 1923, in Tyler, Texas, to Lottie Dark Terry and William S. Terry. 

Nelda was a longtime resident of Beaumont, Texas where she enjoyed caring for patients for St Elizabeth’s Hospital from 1962-1987. After retiring she enjoyed riding motorcycles, traveling, and relaxing on the lake with her husband William Charles “Jim” Smith, who preceded her in death but was waiting for her at heavens gates. Nelda recently moved to East Bernard, Texas to fulfill her role as Mamaw to her immediate family. 

Nelda is survived by her only son, Glenn Lloyd Crane and her loving daughter-in-law, Karen Crane; her granddaughter, Amber Walters and her husband, Jay; grandson, Danny Crane and his wife, Wendy; and her wonderful grandkids, Brenley Walters, Blake Walters, Kyler Crane, and Morgan Crane.
