Born October 15, 1941 in Nashville, GA, she was the daughter of the late Perry R.J. Smith and Iola Gordon Smith. Mrs. Lasseter retired from Lasseter Mechanical as the bookkeeper and was the owner/operator of Marie’s Alive and Health Store, Marie’s Tax Service and a member of Heritage Church. The family favorite memories of Mrs. Marie were how she would take grandchildren to the mall to pick out their own Christmas and gave them a budget, then would go back to purchase what they picked out. Mr. Fred and Mrs. Marie took the kids to Pigeon Forge and watched scheduled shows together. One time the ice created quite a challenge for them, and the hot tub was a lifesaver. One year they put $20.00 in handkerchief boxes for everyone and play Chinese Christmas auction and they were truly surprised. Mrs. Marie truly loved and cherished her family and she will be missed greatly.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her daughter, Angela “Angie” Bishop; grandchildren, Jonathan Carroll and Jared Carroll; brother, Jimmy Smith.
