An obituary in Sunday's editions of the Washington Post about Rice Barrett Smith, 60, a cancer patient who died Friday, did not state that the family suggests that expressions of sympathy be in the form of contributions to the Warrenton Rescue Squad or the Fauquier County, Va., chapter of the American Cancer Society.

Rice Barrett Smith, 60, a longtime resident of Warrenton, Va., where she lived with her husband, Douglas R. Smith, a retired Washington banker and civic leader, died Friday at Fauquier Hospital in Warrenton. She had cancer.

Mrs. Smith, who had been ill for many years, devoted much of time to working with other cancer victims. At the time of her death, she was chairman of the current Fauquier County annual campaign for the American Cancer Society, which recently set a record for contributions under her direction.

She and her husband, who is honorary chairman of the board of National Savings and Trust Co. here, often allowed the use of their estate -- a 175-acre farm called Ridgelea in Warrenton -- for charitable and religious events and for activities during annual Virginia garden weeks. Mrs. Smith was a member of the Warrenton Garden Club.

A native of Warrenton, she graduated from Warrenton Country Day School and the Choate School of Boston and attended Vassar University.

Mrs. Smith was a lifelong member of St. James Episcopal Church in Warrenton and a member of the Sulgrave Club of Washington.

Besides her husband, survivors include three daughters, Anne Camden Cassidy of Venice, Calif., Rice R. Flanders of Orange, Mass., and Elizabeth S. Nye of Washington; two brothers, Richard Barrett of Hackensack, N.J., and Wilson Barrett of Alexandria, and four grandchildren.
