Keyser of the Virgin Islands, where her husband is United States attorney. Three brothers, Joseph F. Smith of Omaha, George Smith of Frankfort, Ind., and John A. Smith of Indianapolis, Ind., and two sisters, Mrs. Sophia C. Aveline of Portland, Ore., and Mrs. S. Spitznagle of Council Bluffs, also survive.
