Lurline belonged to Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority at UT and married Donald A. Smith in 1953. She was actively involved in both the Friends of the Library and the Heritage Association of Frisco. She was preceded in death by both of her parents, her husband Donald Alfred Smith M.D. and their son Kenneth Blake Smith. She is survived by her son and daughter-in-law David and Linda Smith and their children, her grandchildren, Melanie Smith and Russell Smith, and Conrad and Beverly Bavousett her brother-in-law and sister, and many much loved cousins. Condolence cards may be sent to David & Linda Smith, 7090 Maple, Frisco, TX 75034 but the best way to remember her is to read a good book, drink a toast to her, and if you wish, send a donation to the Friends of the Frisco Library, P.O.
