Jeanette (Wright) Smith

September 12, 1943 — January 24, 2023

Pinnacle, North Carolina

Jeannette Wright Smith (Pinnacle, NC) born September 12, 1943, to Troy and Alene Abbott Wright, passed away on January 24, 2023 at the Kate B. Reynolds’s Hospice Home and entered her eternal home in heaven.  Jeannette enjoyed the blessings in life of being a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and friend to many. Her co-workers appreciated her professionalism and collegiality during her career as an administrative assistant in real estate, Reynolds Tobacco Sports Marketing and the Stokes County Public School System. She loved travel and visited many beautiful and exciting venues across the United States while enjoying camping, NASCAR Racing and cross-country motorcycle trips with her husband Ed Smith. When not traveling, she loved to cook, garden and was meticulous in keeping an organized, clean and inviting home for family to visit and enjoy a meal. While she received a bounty of blessings, she also experienced great sorrow from the loss of her parents, a teenage brother and her daughter. They all are reunited now, a beautiful blessing. In her later years she battled Alzheimers with grace, grit and a vibrant smile. Jeannette was preceded in death by her parents Troy and Alene Wright, brother Michael Wright and daughter Lynn Harris Adams. She is survived by her husband, Edward M. Smith (King, NC), her son, Mark Harris (Nancy) East Bend, NC, step daughter Terry Speas (Jeff) Rural Hall, NC, step son Mike Smith (Yadkinville, NC), loving sister Rogene Slusher (Mike) Kernersville, NC, loving sister Linda Maye (Clemmons, NC), eight grandchildren, nine great grandchildren, two special nieces (Pam, Jennifer) and 2 special nephews (James and Michael) and a host of friends. The family wishes to thank Brookdale Memory Care, Winston-Salem, Novant Forsyth Memorial Hospital Palliative Care, Winston-Salem, and the Trellis Kate B. Reynolds Hospice Home, Winston-Salem, for their support and caregiving. A private family memorial service will be held at a future date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be made to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America or the Kate B. Reynold’s Hospice Home, 101 Hospice Ln, Winston-Salem, NC 27103.
