These were the times when
health could not be bought not even with the riches that oil brought to
the area. Because of diabetes this lady probably lived an agony daily.
Still she survived and raised her family. There are people living in
Pawhuska today who remember her. She didn't let her condition keep her
house bound. One gentleman remember going with her to the movie theater in
order to help her with her wheelchair and her refreshments. He said it was
a pleasure to him since he saw the movie and enjoyed the treats too. Are
these small memories? Maybe not when they are considered by a boy whose
parents too were appreciative for the care he received. Sam Smith was not
free from his own problems with health. He had a rather severe speech
impediment. Those who remember him in Pawhuska do speak of him with
affection never seeming to dwell on the trouble he had with communication.
It was known he was intelligent and a good neighbor. This seems to be the
things people remember about him.
