Born in Bellefonte, PA on January 29, 1947, she was a daughter of the late Francis and Mary (Conger) Nitchie. She married Donald Edward Smith in 1968. The couple moved to Loudonville, New York for a time and later settled in Marlborough, where they made their home for nearly twenty years. After that, they relocated to Raynham, MA where they spent 18 years before returning to Colchester. Mary worked in various aspects of the medical field in her career. She worked as an assistant in a pediatric practice in Marlborough and later as an optical technician in Middleboro, MA. She volunteered with the Marlborough Volunteer Fire Department as an EMT and served Marlborough Community Arts in several capacities. She will be remembered by her loved ones for many things, but most importantly for the love and devotion she gave selflessly to each of them. She will be sadly missed but always remembered by her loving husband of 48 years, Don; son Daryl Smith and his wife Kendra and two grandchildren, Wendy and Danny of Middletown; four siblings: John Nitchie of MA, Carl Nitchie of GA, Beth Campbell of ME, Kenneth Nitchie of VT; and numerous extended family members and friends.
