Beloved Sandra "Buttons" Irene Smith, 61, of Central Point, Ore., went to be with the Lord Wednesday, March 13, 2013. She was born in Condon, Ore. June 14, 1951 to her wonderful parents who have passed, Betty and Floyd Caughie.
She had lived in the Rogue Valley since the age of six. She proudly graduated from Crater High School in 1974. Employment included Harry and David, commerical truck driver with her husband for Market Transport, and most of all she was a great and compassionate homemaker.
A mom to many, a friend to so many more. She loved camping with friends and family, reading magazines (Soap Opera Digest), shopping (especially when extreme couponing), word searches, reality TV shows, spoiling her dog Suki, and most important spending time with her family.
She was blessed with her best friend and husband, Darrel Milton Smith, 64, of Central Point, Ore.; four wonderful daughters, Sandy Ash, of Eagle Point, Ore., Barbara Smith, of Central Point, Ore., Renea Beaupre, of Hillsboro, Ore., and Betty Smith, of Redmond, Ore.; 11 outgoing grandchildren, Justin, Danny, Kelsey, Kayla, Russel, Kendra, Dillon, Darrel, Nick, Miranda, and Chloe; and one special great-grandchild, Jaydn. Her loving siblings include Robert Henley, of Brussels, Belgium, Linda Anderson (deceased), of Menan, Idaho, Ronald Caughie, of Aloha, Ore., and Johnnie Caughie, of Medford, Ore.
