Obituary for Doris Marian Walker Smith

May 23, 1925 - March 18, 2018
Austin, Texas | Age 92


Our mother, Doris Marian Smith, passed away peacefully March 18, 2018 in Austin, Texas at age 92. She was born May 23, 1925 in Ashland, Louisiana to William Edwin Walker and Mary Jane (Joyner) Walker. She attended Northwestern State University where she met our dad, Donald Frederick Smith. They married in 1943 and this happy couple enjoyed their life together living in various cities and raising their family. Don passed away in 1981 in Houston, and Doris moved to Austin. She was a member of The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd.

She was predeceased by her two sisters Eleanor Bamberg and husband Earl, and Edwina Russell and husband James. Having lost her own parents as a child, she was extremely close to Don's family: mother and father-in-law Hazel and Clarence Smith, and sister-in-law Lavinia Leonard and husband Willie Day. Her nieces and nephews were very loved and important to her. She is survived by her three children and their families: Donna and Tim Aynesworth of Austin, Texas and daughters, Emily and Marian; Todd and Sue Smith of Denver, Colorado and sons, Mycolai and German; and Scott Smith of Denver, Colorado and daughter, Rachel.

Doris was very creative and enjoyed flower gardening, sewing, painting and baking. She was a devoted mother and grandmother and gave wise counsel to her family all of our lives.

Graveside service will be at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 24, 2018 at Memorial Oaks Cemetery in Houston, Texas.
