Mary Agnes Smith

Mary Agnes Smith, 58, of Mechanicsville, MD passed away Saturday, August 4, 2018, at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD with her loving family at her side. She was born on January 22, 1960, in Lynwood, CA to the late Mario and Ida Brunasso.


On June 27, 1987, Mary married her beloved husband, Daniel Joseph Smith, in Long Beach, CA. Together they celebrated over 31 wonderful years of marriage, raising their children Andrew, David, and Elizabeth. She was employed by the St. Mary’s Board of Education in the business administration office for many dedicated years until her retirement in March 2017.


A loving, devoted wife and mother, which included 20 years traversing the globe as a “Navy wife”, Mary selflessly embraced each new destination as a new adventure, a chance to make new friends, and there were many. She was a wonderful, devoted mother, with endless love for her children. From soccer games and Boy Scout meetings, to theater and musical performances, she was always her children’s biggest supporter.


Devoted to her faith, Mary was a member of the St. Vincent DePaul Society, sang in church choir, and loved praying the Rosary. She was happiest when serving others, hosting gatherings for family and friends that were filled with her wonderful cooking. Nothing pleased her more than spending hours baking and decorating beautiful cakes for family and friends. She took joy in simple pleasures, singing, crocheting, gardening, and any other artistic endeavors that her free spiritedness led her to explore.


Mary had a loving, untethered, adventuresome spirit, the joy she received from family and many friends was returned tenfold. Mary didn’t take things or herself too seriously, finding humor in most everything. She kept an upbeat, cheerful attitude even while facing serious medical conditions, which was inspirational to everyone. With her easy going spirit, bright blue eyes, warm, loving smile, and her engaging, lighthearted conversation, she had a gift for making friends. Her life was a lesson on how to enjoy the moment and how to love unconditionally.


In addition to her husband and children, Mary is also survived by her siblings: Mario, Costantina, Leonard, Vincent, Anne, Theresa, Catherine, Barbara, Michael, and Rosemarie, their families, as well as many extended family and friends. She is preceded in death by her parents.
