Wales- Sally C. (Mayberry) Smith, 77, passed away Wednesday, August 5, 2020 at home surrounded by love of family. Sally was born in Westfield, MA, April 11, 1943 to the late Clarence and Esther (Beman) Mayberry. She attended Monson schools and graduated from Tantasqua Regional High School. She also studied art at STCC. She was an accomplished artist creating beautiful landscapes as well as portraits of family members. She briefly commissioned home and pet portraits, and was a founding member of the Palmer Art Connection. She had a love of nature and enjoyed watching the birds at the feeders outside her windows. She was also a lover of animals and actively supported animal rights whenever she could.
She married Rodney Scott Smith on October 6, 1962, and they would have celebrated 58 years of marriage this year. She leaves Rodney and her children to cherish her memory, Julie and Rick Manning of Palmer, Christopher and Colleen Smith of Wales, and William Smith of Southbridge, a brother Peter and his wife Carol, of Monson. She also leaves grandchildren, Benjamin, Thomas, Joshua, Charlotte, Cassidy, Dale, and a great granddaughter, Olive. Sally was predeceased by her parents and her brother Paul Mayberry.
Sally had a special light and it seems inadequate to express her value to those who loved her with mere words. If you knew her, you loved her. She was a kind and caring soul who will be missed more than words can say.
All services are private and have been entrusted to Lombard Funeral Home of Monson.
In lieu of flowers please consider a memorial donation in memory of Sally to the Springfield Rescue Mission 10 Mill Street, PO Box 9045 Springfield, MA 01102-9045.
