Missionary Sherida R. Wright Smith
On Friday March 16, 2018 God called one of his soldiers in from the battlefield. Missionary SheridaWright Smith was born to the late Lee Wright Sr. and Charlene Harrison Wright on October 15, 1960. After being introduced to the Savior as a child, Sherida believed Jesus was real and accepted him in her life. As she continued her walk with the Lord, she found herself growing in Christ. The East Caney Baptist Church became her home and later became an ordained Missionary in 2008.

The time had come for her to return home to Sulphur Springs, to be closer to family. Upon her return Sherida met the love of her life, Lee Smith Jr. and on March 16, 2002 they were joined in Holy Matrimony and remained faithfully in love until her transitioning. Sherida worked for Walmart in Sulphur Springs and retired after 15 years.
