BYBEE-Von I. Smith, well-known retired business owner and

Smith and his wife, Carolyn, built the large, two-story
building alongside Hwy. 160 in Bybee that has been home to Bybee Market since
its opening in 1969. The Smiths resided upstairs over the business.
After their retirement from the grocery business, the
Smiths continued to lease the business to other operators.
Smith also was a retired postal employee who carried the
mail in the Bybee community for many years.
