Carole Jean Smith


WILTON — Carole Jean Smith of Gansevoort, formerly of Clifton, NJ died on May 13, 2024. Born in 1952, she was predeceased by her parents, Joan and Donald Smith, as well as her beloved horse, Jesse. She is survived by her two sisters, Janet Howe (Ben) and Dale Smith Hofmann (Patrick). In addition, Carole’s three nephews Matthew, Michael, and James Howe, as well as her niece Rachel Howe (Peter Zendt) and their three children survive her.

Carole had a photographic memory and from an early age played the piano and taught herself the guitar. She was the accompaniment to many songfests around campfires in her youth. As a remarkable saleswoman, she was the deciding force in helping people make successful purchases to address their needs. Carole loved animals and had four cats and a horse, whom she loved dearly. She supported organizations that tended animals and used her knowledge of technology to help locate lost pets. Her sense of humor was quick and wry, a trait that she especially loved in her father.

Committed to the Saratoga County community, she leaves many friends and their families with fond memories. This was not an easy parting for them, but her fondness for the area is reflected in the outpouring of support that people have offered her family. Saugerties was Carole’s go-to place for additional family, and she deeply grieved for the passing of her beloved Uncle David in 2023. She continued her connection with the family through his daughters, Cathy and Julie Snoddy. 

Funeral services will be private, and a Memorial service will be held at a later date in Wellesley, Mass. Donations in Carole’s name can be made to the animal support group of one’s choice.
