Obituary for Jean Smith Suber

Kinston-Jean Smith Suber, 78, of Kinston, passed away Thursday, September 14, 2017. Jean was born January 15, 1939 in Lenoir County to the late Cullen Smith and Della Mae White Smith. Her husband, Elmer Suber, brother, Dr. Wilton Smith, and sister-in-law, Christine Smith, preceded her in death. Fiercely independent, Jean took great pride in living life her way. She enjoyed time spent at the beach, where the worries of life always seemed to disappear. Jean loved the sweet sounds of beach music and shagging on the dance floor in earlier years. Jean always had a special place in her heart for her beloved canine companions. Her family will hold close the many fond memories of good home cooked meals and time spent around the dinner table.

A memorial service to celebrate and honor Jean’s life will be held Saturday, September 16, 2017 at 6 p.m. from La Grange First Free Will Baptist Church with Rev. Ronnie V. Hobgood officiating.

Jean is survived by three children, Jo Pierce and husband, Harvey, Ted Harrison and wife, Sheila, and Christopher Harrison and wife, Ginger; brother, Billy Ray Smith and wife, Zelia; 11 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren.
