Lorine Smith was born on September 12, 1932 in Wilcoe West Virginia. She was the fifth child born to John L. Draper and DeLois Draper. Lorine was well known for being a God-Fearing Woman dedicated to the Lords work, as well as serving and caring for others. Lorine joined Southfield Community Baptist Church in 1970. During her time at Southfield Community Baptist Church, she offered her assistance and served on several boards such as the Missionary, Deaconess, Nursing, Mothers, and the Guild Girls. Lorine also served as the Sunday School superintendent. She enjoyed working in the food pantry where she helped to distribute food to those that needed assistance. While on the Mothers board, she championed the first Mother Daughters Tea as a fund- raising idea which was a great success and continued for several years. There was never a time she wouldn’t volunteer to cook or serve in the kitchen for special occasions in the church.
Lorine could be found every Wednesday attending Bible Study that was taught by the late Albert Smith. In 2019 Lorine joined First Church of God where she worshiped under the Bishop Timothy J. Clarke
