Cara Smith Obituary, Death – Cara Annabelle Smith, 15, died at Hurley Medical Center on March 26, 2017. She was born on February 7, 2002, in Garden City, to parents Matthew and Lucinda (Wilson) Smith. Cara was many things: beautiful and sensitive, fierce and empathic, charming and feisty, clever and driven – but most of all, she was a lover. In addition to her family, she enjoyed her classmates, professors, physicians, and nurses. She had no ill will toward anyone. Cara’s humanity will live on since she was a Gift of Life-giver who helped many others. Cara attended Atherton Junior/Sr High School and was involved in the GSA and SLS. Cara’s favorite school subjects were chorus, science, and math.
Outside of school, Cara liked listening to music, particularly One Direction, Jason Aldean, and Maroon 5 (she thought Adam Levine was adorable!). She had been a young girl for a long time, but in the last two years, she had developed into a teenager! Cara, like many other adolescents, liked texting, Skype, and browsing Facebook. She was so smitten with the color green that she had it painted in her new room! Cara likes watching the Detroit Tigers (particularly Justin Verlander! ), badminton, and basketball, and has just started painting with watercolors as a new hobby. Cara was a little girl who touched many people’s hearts; she will be mourned by everyone who knew her.
Cara is survived by her parents, Matthew and Lucinda Smith; siblings Hunter Smith, Melina Smith, Anthony Wright, Karisa Wright, and Samantha Huffaker; grandparents Glenn Smith, Roxanne and Brendon McNulty, and Lucian and Carolyn Wilson; great grandmother Darlene Feucht; aunts and uncles Clarissa Hind, Ray Wilson, Ben and Jamie Smith, and Eamonn McNulty; and her furry companion, Duchess. On Saturday, April 1, 2017, at 3 p.m., the funeral will be held at Valley Church of Christ, 4201 Lippincott Blvd., Burton. Brown Service Home, 1480 E. Hill Rd., Grand Blanc, will host a visit on Friday, March 31, 2017, from 1-4 pm and 6-8 pm, as well as one hour before the service on Saturday, which will begin at 2 pm. Those who desire to give a memorial contribution to Cara’s family are welcome to do so.
