“Pinky” Martha Harriet McKinney Smith peacefully went to be with the Lord on February 8, 2018 at the age of 74.
Pinky was born in Goose Creek, Texas on March 21, 1943 to the late I.W. “Dub” and Lucille McKinney. She graduated from Lamar High School in Houston, Texas and attended Texas Christian University.
On November 24, 1964 she married Stanley Phillip Smith of Bastrop in Houston, Texas. More than 10 years later in 1975 Stanley and Pinky moved with their three children, Amy Catherine, Phillip McKinney and Martha Claire to Bastrop, Texas where they built and created their forever home.
Family and friends were Pinky’s passion and delight. She always enjoyed and appreciated the good in all things and admired the smallest pleasures of life until the very end.
She loved the town of Bastrop and did all that she could to make it a better community. She served on numerous Non-Profit Boards, helped to restore the Bastrop Opera House, served on the city’s Planning and Zoning Commission, and was a huge supporter in the Life of the Calvary Episcopal Church. She was also one of the original members of the Bastrop Yacht Club, and Co-Owner of The Shop for All Seasons with her dear best friend Minifred Trigg.
