October 7, 1935 — December 17, 2020

Donald C. “Mouse” Smith, 85, of Enfield passed away on Thursday, December 17, 2020 at Ferrell Hospital in Eldorado, IL.  He was born in Enfield, IL on October 7, 1935, the son of John Robert and Mary Edna (Campbell) Smith.  Don married Thelma Jane Hedger and she preceded him in death on January 14, 1987.  He then married Shirley Jean (Foley) Hauk and she survives.  Don graduated from Norris City High School in 1953.  He was a farmer as well as working for the NCOE School District retiring after 37 years as a bus driver and custodian.
