March 14, 1951-Aug. 30, 2017
Virgie Marie Smith mercifully passed away in Butte to join the Lord Jesus on Wednesday, Aug. 30, 2017.
She was born in Butte on March 14, 1951.
Virgie is survived by her daughters, Lanissa "Lani" Jo Gallegos, Elenya "Maria" Gallegos; son, Roger "Corey" Smith; sisters, Toni Dodd and Lisa Atkins, brother, Jim Dodd; grandsons, Kolin Gallegos, Aiden Smith, Liam Smith; many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and close friend, Mike Ritari.
Virgie was preceded in death by her mother, Vera Atkins; father, Marcel Donald "Don" Mehring; grandparents, Maude and James Oliver Atkins, sisters, Gale, Lloydene "Dennie" and Tara "Terri".
Virgie had her two young daughters taken from her, but never gave up on having them back in her life. In time they both found their way back to her and got to experience the love their mother had for them.
Virgie was a warm, free-spirited, fun-loving, hopeless romantic. She loved to paint, write, make music, sing and dance.
In accordance with her wishes, she was cremated at Butte Crematories. Funeral services will be held at 1 pm Saturday, Oct. 7, in First Baptist Church on 201 W. Broadway in Butte. A reception will follow.
Axelson Alternative Cremation is privileged to serve The Smith Family.
