Marie was born on May 21,1938, in Morehead City, North Carolina, to the late Kenneth and Sarah Moore. Her roots ran deep in the Salter Path community where she was loved by so many. Marie was a testimony of what a Proverbs 31, godly Christian woman represents. Her unwavering trust in the Lord was evident in her daily life, her prayers were that of a warrior, fiercely claiming and protecting her loved ones, and she was the hand of Christ extended to so many in need. It was with humble adoration that she inspired, assisted, and touched so many lives. Marie’s family will forever cherish her legacy and will continue to strive to live out the example she provided for them. Marie found the most joy in being with her family and church along with cooking for others. 

She is survived by her daughters, Anna Smith Frost and husband Tony, Alice Smith Willis and husband Ted, and Frieda Smith Fiorini and husband Mike, all of Salter Path; grandchildren, Eddie Mullen and wife Kelly, Toni Marie Luther and husband Michael, Erika Fiorini, Matt Frost and wife Maggie, Casey Fiorini, Dustin Fiorini and significant other Alyson,  and Ted Willis Jr. and husband Stan; and great-grandchildren, Elijah, Layla, Hailey, Jake, Elleigh, Hunter, Addie and Price.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, Homer Smith, in 1993; and brothers, Ernest Moore, Plymouth Moore and Joseph Moore.

The family will receive friends from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. on Monday, November 23, 2020, at Salter Path United Methodist Church. The same safety guidelines will apply.
