Olga Smith, 63, of Spur, Texas, entered Heaven’s gates on Tuesday, August 11, 2020. She was born May 4, 1957, in Lubbock, Texas, to Luis Jr. and Felice Martinez Leyva.

She is preceded in death by her husband, John Alvin Smith; her parents; two brothers, David Leyva and Louis Leyva III; and one grandchild.

Funeral Mass was held on Friday, August 14, 2020, at 11 a.m. at the St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Spur, Texas, with burial following in Spur Cemetery.
