Cara Smith Obituary, Death – Cara Annabelle Smith, 15, died on March 26, 2017, at Hurley Medical Center. She was born in Garden City on February 7, 2002, to parents Matthew and Lucinda (Wilson) Smith. Cara was many things: gorgeous and sensitive, fierce and empathetic, lovely and feisty, witty and determined – but she was most of all a lover. She adored her classmates, instructors, physicians, and nurses, in addition to her family. She didn’t have a single hatred for anyone. Cara’s humanity will go on after her death because she was a Gift of Life-giver who assisted countless people. Cara went to Atherton Jr/Sr High School and was active in the GSA and SLS. Cara’s favorite subjects at school were chorus, science, and math. Cara enjoyed listening to music outside of school, especially One Direction, Jason Aldean, and Maroon 5 (she thought Adam Levine was so cute!).
She had been a young girl for a long time, but in the last two years, she had grown so much that she had become a teenager! Cara, like many other teenagers, enjoyed texting her pals, using Skype, and surfing Facebook. She was so taken with the color green that she had her new room painted in it! Cara enjoys watching the Detroit Tigers (especially Justin Verlander! ), badminton, and basketball, and has just taken up watercolor painting as a new pastime. Cara was a young girl who touched the hearts of many people; she will be missed by everybody 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 Duchess, her furry companion. The funeral will be conducted at Valley Church of Christ, 4201 Lippincott Blvd., Burton, on Saturday, April 1, 2017, at 3 p.m. Brown Service Home, 1480 E. Hill Rd., Grand Blanc, will hold a visit on Friday, March 31, 2017, from 1-4 pm and 6-8 pm, as well as at church on Saturday, one hour before the service, which will begin at 2 pm. Those who wish to make a memorial gift to Cara’s family may do so.
