Jeanne (Smith) Doyle, 58, of Searcy passed away August 13, 2017, at Conway Regional Hospital. She was born April 7, 1959, at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Little Rock, AR. She was the daughter of Vivian (Price) Smith and the late J.R. Smith of Searcy. She was last employed by Doyle Land Services, Inc. in service to Fayetteville Express Pipeline as a right of way representative. She was a 1977 graduate of Searcy High School and Foothills Vocational Technical School.
She is survived by her mother, a brother; Jimmie R. Smith of Searcy and a sister; Elaine Griggs (Glenn) of Clinton, AR. Nephews; Jeremy L. Smith (Jennifer), Brandon W. Stokes (Regina) and a niece; Amanda Jean Osmon (Tim) all of Searcy, and many great and great-great nieces and nephews as well as a host of family and friends.
She was of the Baptist faith. Jeanne’s vibrant personality and her love of life would light up in her smile. She loved being with her family and friends and oh how she loved the kids! When not with family her second family was the Gypsy Paddlers, an all girl group who loved floating the rivers of our beautiful state. Besides canoeing, she loved campfires, hiking, fishing, hunting (in our own unique girl style), and adventures spent exploring the Natural State. Her beautiful blue eyes are sparkling again, free of the encumbrances of earth. I bet she’s exploring some awesome rivers in heaven and Miss “Never Lost” will already have us a trip planned when we meet her again.
She is preceded in death by her grandfathers; Garrett Smith and Opie Price and grandmothers; Rentha Smith and Frances Price, and by a niece; Audra (Smith) Evans all of Searcy.
