Mickey died on Monday, November 23, 2015 at her home in Camden. Born in Camden, South Carolina on May 17, 1950, she was the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bruce Smith (Mildred) and the granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thornwell Spears (Harriet) and Mr. and Mrs. Walter Smith (Sally). She was a 1968 graduate of Camden High School. Mickey was a loving wife and mother to her children. She instilled in her children a confidence and belief that they could achieve anything through God and perseverance. Mickey was a life-long lover of music and accomplished pianist and organist. Throughout most of her life, she served as a church pianist and organist. As a young woman, Mickey worked for Belk at their buying office in Charlotte as well as Eastern Airlines. She also worked for Pepsi as a sales consultant. In recent years, Mickey enjoyed working at the South Carolina House of Representatives as a legislative aide.
Mickey was not only talented in music and in the workforce, she possessed a talent and love for interior design. She often helped friends and family decorate their homes in magazine ready style. However, her passion and calling was that of being a grandmother. She longed for grandchildren and God blessed her with five beautiful grandchildren ages one through six.
Mickey is survived by her parents; husband, Charles Braxton Litchfield; son, Jonathan McLean Robinson (Jennifer), daughter, Caroline Litchfield Foster (Jason); grandchildren, McLean, Lucy, and Mary Lancaster Robinson, and William and Andrew Foster, her sisters, Martha Smith Tingen (Jim) and Linda Smith Atkinson (James); as well as aunts and many nephews, nieces, and cousins.
