Susan Lynn Smith Keener

Susan Lynn Smith Keener, 74, passed away peacefully at Northside Cherokee Hospital on June 28, 2022, with family by her side. A longtime Georgia resident, Susan had resided in Marietta, Woodstock, and Acworth. She was preceded in death by her husband Michael Keener, grandson Alex Keener, and daughter-in-law Ann (Roberts) Keener.

Susan was born in Kingsport, TN, to beloved parents Edith and Fred Smith, Sr. Her family later moved to Morristown, TN, the town she always considered home. She was a graduate of Morristown-Hamblen High School and Middle Tennessee State University and was a member of Sigma Kappa sorority. She and Michael married in 1968 and later spent two years in Germany during his service in the Army. Though she eventually moved away from her home state, she always remained a diehard fan of the Tennessee Volunteers.

Susan is survived by her son David, daughter-in-law Emily, and granddaughter Edie Keener of Acworth; son Andrew Keener and daughter-in-law Tara Alvarez of Orange, VA; son Lee Keener of Knoxville, TN; sister Carol and brother-in-law Larry Lay of Morristown, TN; brother Fred and sister-in-law Nancie Smith of Alpharetta; sister-in-law Donna and brother-in-law Louie Keeling of Powell, TN; several dearly loved nephews and nieces; special friend Henry Wade of Woodstock; honorary children Jessi and Chris “Steve Evenkeener” Olivero of Dallas, GA; and her friends at Legacy Ridge Neese Road in Woodstock. 

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, August 6, 2022, at 2:00 PM, in the chapel of Georgia Funeral Care, 4671 S. Main St. Acworth, GA.  Susan will be interred with Michael at Georgia National Cemetery in Canton. A service will be held at a later date to be posted on this page.
