Raoma A. Smith of Huntingtown, MD, passed away on Thursday, May 3, 2018, at the age of 84. She was born in Jesse, WV, on September 15, 1933, to Nitah [Walker] and Jay Cook. For a number of years, Raoma worked for an insurance company in Washington, DC. Following that, she worked for the Prince Georges Board of Education, retiring in 1975.
Raoma had a number of hobbies and interests. She loved to crochet, bake, play bingo and card games. She was a regular at the Solomons Nursing Home bingo games and had a great time. All those were fun, but she received the most enjoyment in spending time with her family. She seems to brighten up when they were together.
She was the beloved wife of the late James L. Smith, who passed in 1996, and the loving mother of Thomas E. Smith (Martha) and Becky S. Sasscer (Tom). Raoma was the devoted grandmother of seven grandchildren William Sweatt (Kirsten), James Sweatt (Danielle), Samantha Simmons (John), Crystal Culley (Justin), Jamie Kraeski (Sharon), Sommer Clark (Joe) and Ashlee Nassar (Rob); 16 great-grandchildren and the sister of Gladys Wiley. Raoma was preceded in death by her daughter Sharon Ann Smith-Sweatt, who passed in 1986 and siblings Jay, Bill, Norval, Jimmy-Dale, Roberta and Georgeanna.
