Like many of her generation, Emogene Kathryn Jackson Smith grew up, married, and reared a family in challenging times; but her life, guided by an innate intelligence, strong work ethic, and commitment to family, church, and friends, was characterized by a sense of humor, positive outlook, and strong aptitude for games. A daughter, sister, wife, mother, and aunt, she was on occasion also nurse, babysitter, and tutor. In recent years, she enjoyed her association with youngsters in Thursday School at the Seventh Street Church of Christ. Her life ended this week as it started, in the Durant-Caddo area, where she felt most connected. From the late 1940’s to the 1980’s, she also made a home in several places in Texas, mostly Plains and Houston, for her family.
