Mrs. Prescott was born September 15, 1957, in Simmesport, LA the daughter of Billy D. Malcolm Smith and Anita Ann Moreau Smith.

Cathy was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, “Peaches”. She loved her family with all her heart and they gave her such great joy. She was an avid gardener and her yard was her dearest place of Love and Peace. Her green thumb showed throughout the year. You never once paid a visit and did not see the fruits and blooms of her labor, which she shared with all. Her work in the grocery business gained her respect with her hard work, energetic and dedicated qualities that drew attention from everyone near her. She had such a caring heart and used her baking and candy making skills delivered with a kind word and a smile to let you know that she truly cared. The generosity she shared was amazing and contagious. Her example of love was remarkable and will be greatly missed.

She is preceded in death by her father, Billy D. Malcolm Smith; one niece, Cristy Carter and grandson Tullen Prescott.

Survivors include two sons, Drey Prescott and wife Mary Margaret, their children, Jon Oliver Prescott and Patrick Prescott; Colton Prescott, his children Corvan and Beckett Prescott, Adaline Denny; her mother, Ann Flewelling; three sisters, Sherry Smith Carter and husband Thomas, Gail Gamberi and husband Ronnie, Sharla Marks and husband Phil; two brothers, Maxie Smith and wife Sharon, William Dale Smith and wife Dawn; one sister-in-law Dee Ann Herring and husband David; a number of nieces and nephews, Mystic Smith, Bethany Prince, Garrett Gamberi, Brittany Gamberi, Tyler Smith, Lily Smith, Autumn Cooper, Elizabeth Stewart, and Victoria Townsend.
