Smith, who was known for her optimistic outlook and boundless energy, was 55.

She is survived by her husband, Harold Smith, of Great Falls and her father, Lorence Gregg, and his wife, Jeanne.

Brenda Shipplett, president of Long & Foster, praised Smith as a professional and as a sparkling individual.

"We loved Pam. She had been with Long & Foster for 20 years," she said.

"During that 20 years, Pam was always the most upbeat, vibrant person, full of life, good to people," Shipplett said. "We never had one complaint from the community or from other agents. For many years, she was the top agent in Great Falls."

Hundreds of people paid tribute to Smith Sunday at Fairfax Memorial funeral home. A memorial open house will be held December 31, 2003, in Overland Park, Kansas.

Funeral services are scheduled for 3 p.m. Tuesday, January 13, 2003, at the Old Post Chapel at Fort Myer, Virginia. Interment will follow at Arlington National Cemetery.

Smith's death stunned associates in the Great Falls office of Long & Foster where she was a top producing Realtor for two decades.

Her friends there called her a star in the eyes of her friends and clients.

A native of Kansas City, Missouri, she was a graduate of Baker University and earned a master's degree in German linguistics at Georgetown University.

Before starting her real estate career, Smith taught German at Northern Virginia Community College and translated technical and medical research materials for the U.S. Government and for private industry.

Between earning her two degrees, she spent two years living and working in Germany and traveling through Europe.

According to information supplied by Linda Quinn, a close associate of Smith's at Long & Foster, "she always joked that she traveled Europe in a VW bug held together by duct tape on a dollar a day long before that book was ever written."

Smith's husband and Quinn will carry on her role with Long & Foster, Shipplett said.

Survivors also include her siblings, Douglas Gregg, Spencer Gregg, Lorie Estelle and Karen Dees; stepsiblings, Gail Hubbell and Jim Hubbell; stepchildren, Mike Smith of Boyds, Md., and Carol Smith of Ellenboro, N.C.; and many nieces and nephews. 

Memorials to support Smith's favorite charities may be sent to the Pam Smith Memorial Fund care of Long & Foster Realtors, P.O. Box 97, Great Falls, Virginia 22066.

Pam has been selling homes in Northern Virginia for 19 years and is proud to be ranked among the elite of the area's Realtors. Real Estate is not her job - it is her life - and she loves it. You'll see that quickly when you start to work with her. She has helped many hundreds of familes relocate and has made their moves a virtually stress free, exciting and enjoyable process. Many of these families have used her several times, as they move from one home to another and almost all recommend Pam to friends and neighbors. The majority of her business comes from these past client referrals.

For sellers, she offers a proven proactive marketing plan that exceeds that of her competition. For buyers, she offers an exceptional knowledge of the area and has a Buyer Specialist on staff to assure clients can see homes on their schedule. Also, she has an office staff to assist her in meeting the needs of her clients as efficiently as possible. Yet, it is Pam you will work with. Her staff offers the support necessary for her to give full time and attention to her clients.

She is known and respected among her peers as a strong agent with integrity and market knowledge.
