Doris Harriet Cole, 64, passed away March 13 at her home in Encino following a battle with ovarian cancer.

Cole earned her bachelor's degree in education from Northwestern University and taught in the Chicago public schools. She continued her education at California State University, Northridge, earning master degrees in special education and accounting. She had been a CPA in private practice since 1986.

"Doris had a great sense of humor," says Encino-based CPA Carolyn Fox. "Anytime you had a conversation with her you'd leave with a smile on your face. She was also incredibly intelligent and a real fighter no matter what happened to her."

CalCPA's 2000 Public Service Award winner Jennings Wait "Bud" Smith, 84, passed away Feb. 3.

Born in Lemolo, Wash., Smith grew up in San Francisco and graduated from the University of San Francisco with a bachelor's in economics. He then became a CPA and worked for Price Waterhouse, the GAO, the U.S. Army Audit Agency in Munich, Germany and Matson Navigation in San Francisco. He also served as director of fiscal affairs for the Port of Oakland and was treasurer and CFO for the City OT Oakland, where he lived. He was in private practice until his death.

"I had a lot of respect for him," says Reed Cowan, a Lafayette-based CPA who was a friend and colleague. "I could go and ask him anything and he'd set me straight. The only thing I taught him was to drink sapphire martinis."
