During the early years of her life, she received her formal education in the Dougherty County School System. As a youth, she heeded the call of Christ and began her journey with the Lord at the Pleasant Grove Baptist Church in Dougherty County, Georgia. Through the years, she was a faithful, dedicated member who willingly served on the usher’s board. She was a prayer warrior who dearly loved the Lord. Martha Alice was joined in Holy Matrimony to Joseph Smith. In this union one child was born, Willie Mae Smith.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Smith, her daughter, Willie Mae Jackson and a grandson, Joseph Jackson, a sister, China Daniels, and three brothers, Nat, Roosevelt and Raymond. Loving Memories will forever be cherished by her son, Joseph (Bernice) Smith, two granddaughters, Janice (Claudel) Lumar, and Jacqueline Jackson, three grandsons, Larry (Valerie) Smith, Roosevelt (Sharon) Jackson, and Michael Jackson.
