  • CaTrinna LaVonne Lee Smith went to be with the Lord Tuesday, June 7, 2011. She left a testimony that she was ready to go and meet the Lord. CaTrinna belonged to the Victory Chapel Church of God and was a willing worker in any capacity she was needed.
    CaTrinna was born Feb. 8, 1972, in Edmond to Charles and Roberta Lee. She graduated from Bethel High School with the Class of 1990.
    On May 13, 1995, she married the love of her life, Freddie Smith. They had 16 wonderful years together.
    When CaTrinna was 16, she went to work at the Golden Rule Home as a Nurses Aide and went on to pursue her goal as a Licensed Practical Nurse in 1992.

Through the years, she was employed in various administrative capacities for home health agencies and hospices. At the time of her death, CaTrinna was employed with the VA Hospital.
    CaTrinna’s true calling was to serve the Lord with a happy heart, love her husband ... then to spoil those precious children. Aunt Bee got a master’s degree in this from all the children she knew. Aunt Bee Days was looked forward to by her nieces and nephews.
