Judith K. (Parkhurst) Smith, 77, of Pisgah Forest, North Carolina, formerly of Lowell, Massachusetts, died Sunday, July 9th at Elizabeth House in Flat Rock, NC. She was the beloved wife of William A. Smith who survives her and with whom she celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary on June 17th.
 Born in Lowell, Massachusetts, March 6, 1940, a daughter of the late Eliot K. and the late Rita M. (Regan) Parkhurst, she attended Billerica, MA schools and was a graduate of Billerica Memorial High School.
