Tivie lived a full, happy life. She began her career as a nurse in Orangeburg, SC. When she and Alfred were blessed with children, her family became the center of her attention.

She loved gardening, cooking for her family and friends, and was steadfast in her faith.

Tivie is predeceased by her husband, Alfred Heaton Smoak. They were married on October 28, 1952. Tivie was a loving mother to Ronald (Lee), Robert (Monette), Bradley (Jane) and Susan (Harris Cissel). She was the grandmother to Christopher (Christina), Daniel (Meg), Grace, Renee (Michael), Brian (Tiffany), Emily Cissel and Paige Cissel; great grandmother to Elise, Celeste, and Wes; and numerous nieces and nephews who she loved deeply and wanted to see at every opportunity.
