Mr. Olin T. Smalley, age 78, of the Brackett Town community, passed away at his home on Tuesday, August 1, 2017 following a brief illness.  Olin was born in Cherokee County, South Carolina on May 25, 1939 to the late P.B. Smalley and Lela Spencer Smalley.  He drove a truck for W&L Motor Lines out of Hickory for a while and then for Frederickson Trucking in Marion before going to work for East Marion Manufacturing from which he eventually retired.  He was with East Marion until they closed the plant and stayed with them for a while even after the plant closed.  Olin also farmed his land in Brackett Town which was part of his family’s old home place there.  Anyone who knew Olin knew that he lived his life as he wanted and died on his own terms.  He loved his family and they loved him and will miss him very much.

 

Surviving are his wife of 56 years, Anna Webb Smalley of the home; his son, Kenneth Smalley and wife Karen of Union Mills; three sisters, Bertha Chapman of Cowpens, SC, Dorothy Rhom of Dysartsville and Lois Watkins of Augusta, GA.

 

A memorial service will be held on Friday, August 4, 2017 at 1:00 p.m., at Westmoreland Funeral Home in Marion with Rev. Joshua Calvert officiating.  The family will receive friends from 12:00 p.m. until 1:00 p.m., prior to the service, at the funeral home.  Memorials may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association at 31 College Place, Asheville, NC  28801.
