Corrina G. Smith, Age 71 of Edmond, OK went to be with our Lord Jehovah on November 18, 2020. She passed away peacefully with family by her side in her home. She was born on April 24, 1949 in Las Vegas, NM, to Conrado Hayes and Maria Seferina Martinez. She is survived by her husband Rex Smith, daughter Brenda Hayes, son David Smith and wife Lisa, son Darrell Smith and wife Elizabeth and step-son Jeff Smith and wife Annette, all of Edmond, OK; grandchildren Jessica Conner, Daniel Conner, Logan Smith, Allyson Smith and Nicole Smith and great grandson Tyson Conner; sister Priscilla Hayes of Rio Rancho, NM, brother Toney Martinez of Union, MS, brother Chris Martinez of Edmond, OK and numerous beloved nieces, nephews, cousins, family and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents, brother Robert Martinez and sister Patricia Martinez. Corrina married Rex Smith on December 17, 1971 and they spent almost 49 wonderful years together by each other’s side. She grew up in Las Vegas, NM, attended Draughon’s Business School and worked various jobs throughout her life, but her passion was for her children and taking care of others as well as her community. She was an avid Christian and enjoyed studying the Bible. She loved the outdoors and working in the garden, especially canning vegetables harvested by her and Rex. She took great joy in collecting knick-knacks and various figurines that caught her fancy. She loved various styles of mid-century music, most of all Elvis songs and old western movies or TV shows were always on the TV in the background. She loved her family and friends and every person she met. She was truly a genuine person. She will be dearly missed, but we are grateful we will be reunited with her one day.
Visitation will be held from 4-8 p.m., Saturday, November 21st and Sunday, November 22nd from 2-4 p.m. with family greeting friends at Matthews Funeral Home.

I so loved that sweet lady, Corrina ❤.
She always welcomed me, and then my daughter (Lindsey). I will forever remember your kindness and our many visits. You rest easy now, until we can see each other again ?
Prayers of comfort to you and family Brenda.

She is with her family and I hope she finds that great eternal peace. I have so many mixed emotions. We lost your mother David, Brenda and Derrel. We love our mothers and never what to this anything Illof them, year those relationship are fixed with so much relieve cause there is no more suffering, the time that is lost cause they are gone to soon and the moments when we so desperately need our mothers to get us but it was a different time. Our Idenity is so wrapped up In how our mothers viewed us. We just alway want to please her and we grow up and realized she wants us to be the best we can be in that moment. Sometime we thing she doesn’t see but sometime it is just hard for our parent to spit out how proud they are of us. You are all amazing in your mothers eyes even though in our hurt it is hard to see that. Just know what I know your mother loves you from wherever she is. You carry her in you both Metaphysically and in your genes. Remember the great times and forget the old shitty one for you sake she is gone and those nastay memories say here to be felt with. Forgive cause it is not anyone fault but it is easy we need to Romeo da to forgive. When it is all said and done we only have those moment as we sit round a fire some where with people that love us and have one coming goal.
Sorry everyone my sister and mother have passed recently and I was not taking this well. Please excuse the crazy rating of some one that has had to much loss to close together.
