Doris Joan Smith, 87 of Hendersonville, North Carolina and formerly of Whippany New Jersey passed away at her home with her family by her side. Born in Frankfurt, Germany, she arrived in New York City as a teenager and settled in Whippany, where she raised her two children. She worked on Wall Street for Loeb Partners for many years as the operations manager of the Arbitrage Department until her retirement in 1997.

Doris was preceded in death by her husband, Bartlett M. Smith, and is survived by her daughter, Gail Walter and son-in-law Lawrence Walter of Glen Ridge, New Jersey and her son, Bart Smith of Texas. She leaves behind 5 beautiful grandchildren whom she loved and cherished very much: Sarah, David and Sean Walter along with Stephanie and Michelle Gagne. For those who knew her, Doris was truly an incredible person who led the most interesting life. Her passion for cooking, her interest in Wall Street, and the love she had for her friends and family will not be forgotten.

Doris and her family would like to express their sincere gratitude and appreciation to Dr. Samuel Tilden for the wonderful care and attention he paid to her during her illness.

To celebrate her extraordinary life and amazing personality her family would appreciate if donations be made to the Hendersonville Lions Club, PO BOX 2093, Hendersonville, North Carolina 28793.
