In Loving

Renee M. Smith

February 15, 1948 – February 11, 2024

Renee M. Smith passed peacefully in her sleep at the age of 75, on Sunday, February 11, 2024.  She left us following a tough battle with dementia and just shy of her 76th birthday.  She was a mother, sister, grandmother, and friend.

Renee graduated from Huguenot High School in 1966.  She was a homemaker and lived most of her life in Richmond, Virginia.  She loved to spend time in the Northern Neck, the Outer Banks, NC, and Florida over the years.  She enjoyed the sun, boating, shopping, and good food.  Renee had a great sense of decorating and style.

Renee is survived by her brother, Robert Dickens (Mary Lou); her sons, William H. Murphey III (Teresa), and Christopher S. Murphey (Susan); as well as several beloved grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

Renee will be deeply missed by her family and friends, who will forever cherish the memories they shared together.  She will be remembered for her funny wisdom, sense of humor, and the profound impact she had on those fortunate enough to have known her.  Though her physical presence is no longer with us, Renee’s spirit will continue to live on in the hearts and minds of those who were touched by her life.  May she forever rest in peace.

A memorial celebration will be held in her honor from 5-7 p.m. Friday, March 1,  at Affinity Funeral Home, 2720 Enterprise Pkwy, Richmond, VA.  All who knew her are welcome to attend.  In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Richmond Animal League in memory of Renee.
