IN LOVING MEMORY Virginia Ann Fleming Smith, age 82, of College Station, entered the Kingdom of Heaven on Wednesday, January 7, 2015. Graveside services will be 10:00 a.m., Saturday, January 10, 2015 at the Wortham Cemetery with Rev. John Maurer officiating. She was born in Richland, TX, on February 7, 1932 to Rudolf and Elsieline Fleming. Virginia graduated from Richland High School, Richland, TX, before attending Navarro Junior College in Corsicana and later West Texas State in Canyon, TX. Virginia worked for Texas A&M College in College Station, Production Credit in Corsicana, and Education Credit Union in Waco. She was the Director of the Polk County Committee on Aging and was a member of the Deep East Texas Committee on Aging before retiring in 1997. Virginia had a heart of gold. Whether it was helping 4-H members type their record books, teach them how to keep their project records, or transport them to their contest sites, she was always available. That helping hand was always extended to her husband, Chile, who was a County Extension Agent with the Texas Cooperative Extension Service. Virginia, known and loved by so many, was a beloved daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend. She was preceded in death by father Rudolf Fleming; mother Elsieline Fleming; husband C.S. "Chile" Smith; sister Marilyn Keeling; sister Billie Burney; and son-in-law Joe "Bear" Breeden. She is survived by her daughter Carrolyn Breeden, Willis, TX; son John W. Smith and wife Dana, College Station; grandchildren Clint Bennett and wife Jennie; Holly Downs and husband Jason of College Station; Kari Smith Gibson and husband Noah, Alexandria, VA; Amanda Smith, San Antonio, TX; and Emily Smith, College Station, TX. She had five great-grandchildren, as well as nieces and nephews. Virginia was an active member of Central Baptist Church in College Station. She loved the Lord, her family, friends, and Texas A&M athletics. There is no larger A&M fan than Virginia! Although not a graduate of A&M, her heart belonged to the Aggies none the less. She truly bled "Aggie Maroon". The family requests in lieu of flowers, donations please be make to the Chile & Virginia Smith Memorial Scholarship in the care of the Texas 4-H Youth Development Foundation, P O Box 1020, College Station, TX 77842-1020.
