Lucy was born circa 1859 at South Australia.2 She was the daughter of Alexander Charles Deane and Ann Dunne.1

Her mother died 26 June 1870 at the approximate age of 38.

A family member states that the children from Alexander Deane's first marriage were looked after by a woman in Walkerville because the second wife Sarah Sheils didn't want to care for them.3

She married Walter Thomas Smith, son of James George Smith and Lydia Manthorpe, at Trinity Church on Monday, 29 December 1879 at Adelaide.2,4 Lucy and Walter Thomas Smith, aged 29 became the parents of Elbertha Smith on Thursday, 30 September 1880 at the Adelaide suburb of Gilberton.5 Lucy and Walter Thomas Smith, aged 30 became the parents of James Smith on Tuesday, 11 October 1881 at Gilberton.6 Lucy and Walter Thomas Smith, aged 33 became the parents of Edward Smith on Wednesday, 19 November 1884 at the Adelaide suburb of Parkside.7 Lucy and Walter Thomas Smith, aged 36 became the parents of Lillian Smith on Thursday, 24 May 1888 at Parkside.8 Lucy lived circa 1890 at the Adelaide suburb of Kensington.1 Lucy and Walter Thomas Smith, aged 40 became the parents of Lucy Smith on Saturday, 16 April 1892 at Parkside.9 Lucy and Walter Thomas Smith, aged 42 became the parents of Arthur Smith on Friday, 20 April 1894 at Yorketown, South Australia.10,11,12 Lucy and Walter lived in August 1898 at Cape Borda, Kangaroo Island, South Australia.13

A meting of the Cape Borda Christian Endeavor Union was held at the Smith house, and Elbertha, Lillian and Lucy were all involved (and one was elected treasurer.)13

The Smith family hosted a social evening at their house at Cape Borda, Kangaroo Island, South Australia for the Cape Borda Christian Endeavor Society, and the three girls and two of the men contributed songs and recitations.14

On Saturday, 18 January 1908 the Smith family departed Harvey's Return, in Cape Borda, Kangaroo Island, South Australia for their annual holidays. On their journey to Adelaide, a large bushfire was observed on the island.15

On 27 April 1910 Walterwas allocated 635 acres (nearly a square mile) of crown land at Kongorong, South Australia (section 496) seven miles west of the town for £1349.16,11

Her father died 12 April 1912 at the age of 71. She presumably lived with her spouse Walter at Kongorong, South Australia, in August 1912.17

On Friday, 10 September 1915 it is likely that Walter and Lucy attended the retirement function of Mr. J Hilton, head keeper at Cape Bank Lighthouse.18

Lucy's son Arthur began military service on Thursday, 14 October 1915 with the Light Horse at age 21.12

Lucy's son Edward began military service on Monday, 17 April 1916 with the 2nd Depot Battalion at age 31 His service number was 2031.19

Walter and presumably Lucy attended an Australia Day celebration on Friday, 28 July 1916 (held on that date in 1916) that went through out the day, ending in an evening concert. He contributed 10 shillings.20 Taken on strength.21,22,23,11 News was received on Thursday, 17 May 1917 that her son Edward was missing, and had been missing since 11th April.24,23,25 News was received on Wednesday, 20 June 1917 that her son Edward was severely wounded and was a prisoner of war in Germany.24,23

It seems that Walter and Lucy's land at Kongorong, South Australia was forfeited under a Closer Settlement Agreement due to non-payment of arrears (the newspaper incorrectly states that this applied to Section 696; the Smiths held Section 496). This land was then noted as an 'abandoned block' and made available for selection 4th of September 1919. It was then granted to their son Edward in January 1920.26,27,28,29

On Wednesday, 23 January 1918, Lucy contributed 3 shillings to the Kongorong Patriotic Fund.30

On Wednesday, 24 April 1918, Lucy attended a meeting of the Red Cross Society, giving a small cash donation in support of the Prisoner of War Fund.31 News was received in February 1919 that her son Edward had been returned to England.24,23 Lucy's son Edward was discharged from military service on Thursday, 27 November 1919 at age 35.32

In 1922 Walter and Lucy purchased a house in Adelaide.11 She and Walter Thomas Smith celebrated their golden wedding anniversary on 29 December 1929.33 Lucy and Walter lived on 4 January 1930 at at 71 Gladstone Avenue in the Adelaide suburb of Magill.34

Her husband Walter died 19 March 1930 at the age of 78, leaving her a widow.35 Lucy lived in May 1943 at Magill.34
