From the Chicago Tribune, 17 May 1999, page 75; viewed on Newspapers.com 19 June 2021:
LONGTIME WILMETTE RESIDENT MARY SMITH, 89
Mary Veronica Smith, 89, a Wilmette resident since the 1940s and according to her sons, “an absolutely devoted mother” who raided her four children through the Great Depression and saw them all graduate from college, died Thursday at Devon Manor Nursing Home in Devon. Pa.
“She was a rock-solid Irish Catholic Democrat,” said Mrs. Smith’s eldest son, Jack Smith. “She was a very loving mother but she could lower the boom on us when she needed to.”
Born in St. Louis, Mrs. Smith moved with her mother to Chicago’s south Side at an early age after her father died. Several family members were already in the area working as telephone operators. Mrs. Smith graduated from the defunct Immaculata High School and worked as a stenographer at Standard Brands in Chicago.
She quit her job after four years, when she consummated a South Side-North Side romance and married John F. Smith, who became her husband of almost 50 years. Jack Smith said his parents developed their relationship while riding the trains. John F. Smith died in 1980.
Jack Smith said his mother spent countless hours with her children. “I can’t count the number of gyms in Chicago she must have visited following us around at our games, our concerts.” He said.
And when her children were grown, Mrs. Smith – a devoted parishioner at St. Francis Xavier Church in Wilmette – dedicated her time to volunteer work. For more than 30 years, she served as a clerk at the Wilmette Public Library and worked in the gift shop at St. Francis Hospital in Evanston.
“We had to take her driver’s license away but then she started taking cabs down to the library and the hospital.” Jack Smith said. “You reach a point when you can’t see over the steering wheel but she really wanted to get out and do the work.”
Mrs. Smith is also survived by two other sons, George and William Joseph; a daughter, Patricia Lehr; 14 grandchildren; and 14 great-grandchildren. Visitation will be held Monday from 5 to 9 p.m. in Donnellan Family Funeral Home, 10045 Skokie Blvd. Skokie. Mass will be said Tuesday 10 a.m. in St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church, 524 9th St., Wilmette.
