Tia Lyn Smith, 52, of Newton passed away Dec. 11, 2018, at home surrounded by her family.
She was born on Sept. 29, 1966, in Denver and grew to womanhood in Moundridge.
After marriage in the 1990s, she birthed three sons, Daniel, Dylan and Joshua, and a daughter Kady. They were absolutely the love of her life.
She loved working at ResCare as a home health aide; the residents loved her and she loved them.
Later in life, she enjoyed fishing and hunting with her friend and partner-in-crime, Jason Kasper.
She is survived by her parents Ross and Sandy VanCuren of Peabody, brother, Todd Smith of Hutchinson, and grandchildren Katalaya, Arianna, Diego, Dominic, Lakynn, Izley, Layla, Bryson, Colton and Zanden, who is due any day. She is also survived by “Pops” Gary McCloud of Newton.
A private family service will be on Saturday, Dec. 15.
