It’s with a heavy heart that I report model, entrepreneur, and lifestyle expert B. Smith has passed away.

B., whose full name Barbara Elaine Smith, died at her Long Island home on Saturday night from complications related to early-onset Alzheimer’s disease.

She was 70.

Her husband, Dan Gasby, revealed the news in a post on Facebook.

It is with great sadness that my daughter Dana and I announce the passing of my wife, Barbara Elaine Smith.

B. died peacefully Saturday, February 22, 2020, at 10:50 pm, of Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease in our home in Long Island, New York. She was 70.

Thank you to Dr. Sam Gandy, East End Hospice and additional caregivers who helped us make B. comfortable in her final days. Thank you to all the friends and fans who supported B. and our family during her journey. Thank you to everyone for respecting our privacy during this agonizing time.

Heaven is shining even brighter now that it is graced with B.’s dazzling and unforgettable smile.

You may recall Dan drew a lot of criticism for having a live-in girlfriend as his wife battled Alzheimer’s.
