Pat Smith

It is with great sadness that I tell you of the passing of Pat Smith. She passed away Saturday March 1st.

Pat was another one of our customers when we were in the service station business here.

Anyone that went to school in the 70's in Santa Anna probably had one of the Smith's children, Vicki, Dick, or Lori, in their class. Pat's husband, R.C, was of course a long time teacher, coach, and administrator at Santa Anna ISD. Pat also worked and volunteered for many years at the school and touched the lives of many. We got to know Pat better when we went to the Presbytarian Church for a few years in the mid 80's and she was always supportive of our young family.
