Mrs. Marie K. Smith Hewitt Morrison, age 100 years, went home to be with her Lord and Savior early Saturday morning, September 15, 2018 in the Talbott Personal Care Home at Belington. Death was following a period of declining health.

She was born July 15, 1918 to the late Charles Edward Smith and Malinda Rohrabaugh Smith at Belington, the Audra Community, on a farm where her father logged and raised horses to support his family. They also raised pigs and chickens for their eggs to trade for sugar, coffee, and flour. Her mother was a hard worker raising seven children in a small house given to Malinda by her father out near Twin Lakes, Audra Community.

She walked nearly six miles to school having graduated from Belington High School. Shortly after graduation she married Carl Hewitt, who preceded her in death after 42 years of marriage. Marie worked for the Hazel Atlas Co. in Clarksburg, Reidboard Brothers in Elkins, Digman’s Mercantile, and lastly worked as a Math Lab Teacher’s Aide at Belington Elementary School where she was surrounded by children. After retiring, she met and married Ernest Shelby Morrison in 2000 who survives. During their life together, they worshipped God and had devotions daily. They maintained their home, garden and many flower beds. Ernie had lovingly cared for Marie at home until an auto accident in January 2018 forced him to have additional care for her. Care was lovingly and willing given to them both by Connie Armentrout, Karen Bialek, and Linda and Gary Ware as well as neighbors and friends. Marie was brought up in church and attended regularly as long as she was able. Marie always welcomed visitors who never left hungry or empty handed as there was always a jar of jelly or apple butter just for you! She will be affectionately remembered as a helper to her neighbors, friends or anywhere she saw a need.
Although she had no children, she always had time to entertain the youth of her community. In addition to her husband, she is survived by one sister, Rachel O’Brien of Buckhannon, several nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by three brothers, Woodrow, Leroy, and John L. Smith, and two sisters Laura Lowe and Florence Beeghley.

A private family viewing will be held Tuesday, September 18, 2018 from 10am to 11am from the Talbott Funeral Home 56 North Brandenburg Street Belington, WV. 26250. Following the private family visitation, a private graveside service will be held at Concord Cemetery near Belington with Pastor Kenneth Morrison officiating. Interment will then follow. Condolences may be sent to the family at www.talbottfuneralhome.com. The family ask that in lieu of flowers memorial contributions be made to The Concord Cemetery P.O. Box 231 Belington, WV. 26250 The Talbott Funeral Home in Belington is in charge of the arrangements for Mrs. Marie K. Smith Hewitt Morrison.
