Francis Angie Smoot

Angie Smoot, age 75, passed away Sunday, December 17, 2017 at her home in Manchester. Angie's family and loved ones were by her side when her recent struggles in this life ended, and she went to be with her Lord.


Angie was born on March 20, 1942 in rural Rutherford County, TN to Fred and Lola Lewis. She was preceded in death by her parents and her brothers Fred Jr., Allen (Peggy), and Clark (Sue). She is survived by her husband of 55 years, JC Smoot, son Mike (Debbie) and son CJ (Wendy). Angie is also survived by sisters Charlotte Lewis Austin (Steve) and Dorothy Lewis Carmen (Jack). In addition Angie leaves behind three grandchildren, Amanda Smoot Van Pelt (Casey), Stephen Smoot (Chelsea), and Jared Smoot along with four beautiful granddaughters, and numerous friends including Joyce Lynn with whom Angie shared a 40+ year friendship.


Angie was an avid gardener whose specialty was roses. She loved her roses and so enjoyed spending time in her garden nurturing them. Anyone who happened to ride by Angie's and JC's home during spring or summer were treated to a riotous display of beautifully colored roses.


In addition to Angie's gift for growing beautiful roses, she was an amazingly talented seamstress. She excelled in alterations and was well known for her magic touch with wedding gowns. Over the years, she did everything from hemming to a complete re-work so brides could be beautiful on their special day.


Angie Smoot was a long-time member of Main Street Church of Christ in Manchester.
