Ann Smythe spent 72 years loving her family and friends with an unconditional love felt by everyone she met.

Together they raised three children and ended with six; 3 daughters: Lisa Dingus, Allison Butcher and Jamie Smythe & 3 sons: Brad Smythe, Jody Dingus an Rob Butcher. She loved watching her children play sports and even more enjoyed watching her grandchildren (Hannah and Hunter Dingus, Dalton Smythe, Maksim and Beckett Butcher, Gage and Cale Bass, Amber O’berry and Kayla Dixon) and great grandchildren (Kyleigh Dixon and Jordynn Blowers)

She is also survived by Stella Kiss, the sister she never had, Debbie Kiss, a special niece and loving best friend, and many other nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. She touched thousands of children’s lives working in the school system for Sullivan County. In over 30+ years, she worked at Kingsley, Brookside and Central Heights Elementary and Sullivan South High School.
