When I’ve gone the last mile of the way,
I will rest at the close of the day;
And I know there are joys that await me,
When I’ve gone the last mile of the way.
In humble submission to the Will of God, the management and staff of Christian Memorial Chapel, LLC sorrowfully announce the earthly departure of Ms. Alberta Smith, 48, Dothan, AL.
On Saturday, August 11, 2018, God dispatched the Angel of Death to relay a message to Alberta, saying "I see your road is rough, and the hill is getting too steep. Come rest your head upon My breast, your soul I will keep."
Alberta Richardson Smith was born September 15, 1969, in Dothan, Alabama to Helen Rhynes Bostick and the late Reverend Hosea Bostick.
She accepted Christ into her life and was a member of Northview Christian Church in Dothan, Alabama.
Alberta was devoted to her family and friends. She was known for her quick wit and fun-loving personality. Her faith served as a source of strength as she walked through life’s challenges. Her grandkids, cooking, playing cards and watching her favorite TV show, "Golden Girls", brought her great joy.
She is survived by her children: Kimberly Smith of Dothan and Gregory Smith of Seattle, Washington; her mother, Helen Rhynes Bostick of Cottonwood, Alabama; four grandchildren: Jayden “Bugs” Cox, Kevin Smith, Ariyonna Smith and Lilah Smith; a brother, Kenneth Richardson of Cottonwood, Alabama; numerous aunts, uncles, other relatives and friends.
