She was born January 24, 1949 in Fremont to Eugene and Selina (Brassphenning) Smith. Eugenia loved to play pool and computer games. She also loved playing with her grandchildren and spending time with family and friends. Halloween was one her favorite holidays, because she loved watching how excited children became when receiving candy. She enjoyed cooking for others. On Thanksgiving, Eugenia would cook a big turkey dinner and invite all of the truck drivers over to her house, so she knew that no one was alone for the holidays. Christmas was another one of her favorite holidays, because she loved giving to others.

She was preceded in death by her parents; two grandchildren; siblings, Johnny and Dennise Smith; friend and ex-husband, Sam Dewitt and the love of her life, Vernon H. Torney.
