Obituary for Charlyne S. Smith

Charlyne Sue Smith (nee Descavich) of Vernon, CT, died Wednesday, September 7th after a long illness.

Born in Miami, she spent much of her childhood in Western Massachusetts and Connecticut.
She was introduced to the love of her life by her aunt at a community dance. Charlyne married Terence Smith in 1977. They made their home in Vernon and she became a mother in 1979 and again in 1984 and devoted her life to raising her two children, Tara and Devon. Over the years she sewed many quilts and Halloween costumes, and crocheted the loveliest afghans. She enjoyed travelling with her family, very often to historic sites and homes. She loved cooking and baking and was always looking for new recipes to try. Charlyne was most known for her generous and caring nature. She had a remarkable laugh that we will miss every day.

She is survived by Tara Smith of Manchester, CT and Devon Smith of Vernon CT.

Relatives and friends are welcome to join the family from 11 AM to 1 PM with a memorial service following at 1 PM on Saturday, September 17, 2022 at the Burke-Fortin Funeral Home, 76 Prospect St., Rockville, CT.
