November 30 2012: SMITH, Mary Winston


Was born August 11, 1926 in Washington, DC to Michael Edward and Mary Bernadette Winston. Heaven gained a leprechaun when Mary was called home on November 28, 2012. She is now reunited in eternal life with her beloved husband, Jacko; son, Mike and her grandson, Christopher, along with other family, friends and dogs; having a party in Heaven. Mary’s favorite role was that of mother. Her joy, love and spirit will live on in her daughters, Mary Ellen Groff, Terry Gascoigne and Maureen “Mo” Smith; sons, Kevin Smith and Greg Smith; and the joy of her life, her sweet dog Sampson. Mary was known to her grandchildren Sara, Mark, Molly, Guillaume, Philippe and Adrien as “Nina” and “Momoo” and loved her great-grandchildren Jacob Jackson “J.J.” and Samantha. A Memorial Mass and Celebration of her Life will be held at the Riderwood Chapel, 3110 Gracefield Rd., Silver Spring, MD. 20904 on Saturday, December 1 at 1:30 p.m. An Irish party will follow. The family asks all in attendance to wear green, Mary’s favorite color.
