F, b. August 9, 1926, d. March 6, 2019
     Alice Thalia Smith was buried at Sunset Cemetery, North Franklin Street, Christiansburg, Montgomery Co., Virginia.4 She was born on August 9, 1926 at Shawsville, Montgomery Co., Virginia.3 She married James Alton Conner, son of James Everette Conner and Anne Elzira "Annie" Wilson, on March 24, 1950 at Christiansburg, Montgomery Co., Virginia.3,5,4 As of March 24, 1950,her married name was Conner. Alice Thalia Smith married Burnett Marvell Linkous in 1989.2,4 As of 1989,her married name was Linkous. Alice Thalia Smith died on March 6, 2019 at Virginia at age 92.4 She Thalia Conner Linkous, 92, left peacefully to be with her Lord on Wednesday, March 6, 2019. Her first husband, James Alton Conner, and her second husband, Burnett Marvell Linkous predeceased her. She is survived by her son, Michael Conner and his wife, Rose; her daughter, Angela Conner; her grandson, Dallis Conner and his fiance, Taylor; step-granddaughter, Emma Sporing and her husband, Lawrence; and step-grandsons, Jacob Cutler Willis and Thomas Willis. She is also survived by a special stepson, Tim Linkous, and his wife, Faye; step-grandsons, Andrew Linkous, and his wife, Tiffany; and Corey Linkous; as well as numerous beloved nieces, nephews and friends. Thalia lived her entire life in Alleghany Springs (Shawsville). She was the oldest member of Sowders Chapel Baptist Church. She will be remembered by everyone as a woman who worked hard all her life. She mowed her acre-plus yard with a push mower and always tried to beat her best time. She did all her chores at breakneck speed. She was also a lot of fun, and we may miss that most. She had a quick wit, which was sometimes biting, but only in the most good-natured and hilarious way. We will miss the way her eyes grew large when she was telling a tall tale. Thalia's home will be open for visitation between 2 and 4 p.m. Sunday, March 10, 2019. We hope you will come and tell your own tall tales about her. A graveside service will take place at 3 p.m. Monday, March 11, 2019 at Sunset Cemetery in Christiansburg, Va., with Pastor Lanny Belcher officiating. All her friends are welcome. The family would like to offer special thanks to the folks at Medi Hospice, in particular Marcia Haralson and Jamie Thompson, and special gratitude to Thalia's neighbors, Ila Jean Poff and Doug Poff for watching over her in her later years, and for helping us so much in the last two. on March 9, 2019.4
