CENTER WHITE CREEK, N.Y. -- Marjorie B. Smith, 67, died peacefully Wednesday, Feb. 8, 2006, at her home surrounded by her loving family and dear friends, having fought a courageous battle with cancer. She was the wife of Richard H. Smith.

Born Oct. 9,1938, in Granville, she was the oldest daughter of the late Chauncey L. and Helen M. Deyoe Bain. She attended Greenwich High School and married her beloved husband on April 19, 1957. They lived in Greenwich for many years, moving to Center White Creek about 20 years ago.

While raising their family, Marge worked in the laundry at Mary McClellan Hospital for 23 years and worked the last seven years at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center. She never retired, working through this past June until she was too ill to continue.

Marge was a true artist when it came to making cakes. Wedding cakes were her specialty and she loved making them for family and friends. She made many cakes for the fundraisers held by the Mary McClellan Auxiliary.

She is predeceased by her daughter-in-law, Theresa Smith of Battenville, who died Sept. 29, 2005.

Along with her husband of 48 years, she is survived by six children, Kathaleen Baldwin of Eagle Bridge, Randy R. Smith of Battenville, Bruce A. Smith of Knoxville, Tenn., Kevin Smith of Hoosick Falls, David Smith of Eagle Bridge, and Brenda Edick of Arlington, Vt.; three siblings, Jean Hoskins of Gansvoort, Kenneth Bain of Argyle and Phyllis Fuss of Center White Creek; 12 grandchildren; a great-grandson; a great-granddaughter; and several nieces and nephews.

Friends and relatives are invited to call on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2006, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Ackley & Ross Funeral Home, 73 West Main St., Cambridge.

On Monday, Feb. 13, 2006, at 1 p.m., at the funeral home, family and friends will gather to celebrate Marge’s life.

She will be buried in the spring at Prospect Hill Cemetery in Argyle, beside her daughter-in-law.

The family requests memorial donations be made to either Southern Vermont Regional Cancer Center Resource Fund, 140 Hospital Drive, Bennington, VT 05201 or Washington County Hospice, 415 Lower Main St., Hudson Falls, NY 12839.

Marge described herself as a plain, ordinary, everyday person, far from being perfect. Those who knew her, know how special she was.
