Margaret S. Smith

Margaret S. "Peggy" Smith, age 64, of Portsmouth, Rhode Island, passed away on October 4, 2020, at home. She was a wonderful and loving wife to Mark Smith for the last 38 years.

Margaret was born in Newport, RI to the late William Strack and Katherine (Bryer) Strack who recently died on September 6, 2020.

Peggy loved trips to the mall to shop with her daughter and visits to Boston. From the Green Line to Boston to Faneuil Hall to Boston Commons to Copley Square, she also loved The Florentine Café in the North End. Peggy was an avid gardener and loved flowers. She also worked as a beauty consultant for CVS in Newport, as well as Macy's, Cherry & Webb and Jordan Marsh Cosmetics. On a trip with her family, she was able to see everything Paris had to offer in ten days.

Peggy is survived by her beloved husband Mark Smith of Portsmouth, and her daughter Megen Smith of Concord, CA, and two brothers William Strack of Portsmouth and James Strack of Newport.

Services for Mrs. Smith will be private.

"My deepest sympathy to Mark, Megen and Peggy\'s brothers. I have known and been a faithful client and friend of Peggy\'s for since we were both in our teen years, many short years ago. From her many years at Cherry\'s, to Jordan Marsh, to Macy\'s in Swansea Mall and finally at CVS. Peggy was such an amazing person. Her kindness and caring for everyone including those who she met in passing. A person who did not have a unkind bone in her body. I am so happy and honored to have known her for so many years. I will miss her forever. Rest in peace my dear friend. Deborah and Raymond Dutra"

"My deepest sympathy to Peggy\'s family. I worked with Peggy for many years at Cherry\'s and we spoke at CVS how she returned to the building we worked in together. She was always smiling. She is in God\'s memory now and in our hearts."
