Doris Jean Smith(Gunter), peacefully went into the arms of our Lord, on June 27, 2022. Born in Fort Smith, Arkansas on February 23rd, 1932 to Grace and Andrew Gunter, she spent her formative years in Arkansas. At age 23, she married James Barton, a military man.

Doris worked as a dental assistant for private dentists and Civil Service as she raised her family in military communities mainly in El Paso and Japan. Doris had a tremendous impact on her family and friends. She had sage advice and was generous and gracious. A natural beauty, people could not believe her age as she grew older. Her love of art and creating art was a passion of hers and she made her home a place of beauty and comfort.
