Joan Margaret Cammer Smith, 75, of Marion, North Carolina, passed away Saturday, July 02, 2022 at her residence surrounded by her loving family.

She leaves behind her husband Richard Wayne Smith; her son, Richard Wayne Smith, II; and three grandchildren, Austin Lee Spann, Andrew Michael Smith (Hannah), and Grace Elizabeth Owens-Gaughan.
