Smith, Candyce Elin, of Dayton. Born 12/29/55 in Mtka. Died 7/17/11 peacefully at her childhood home surrounded by her loving family.

Graduate of Minnetonka High School and Gustavus Adolphus College.

Candy will be remembered for her effervescent smile, unconditional love and the ability to always see the good in people. She looked at her cancer as a speed bump that she would overcome and was always looking at how she could help others cope with their diagnosis. Even though her life has been cut short, she touched everyone she met with her zest for life and her attitude that her cup was not half full but "overflowith".

Preceded in death by her father, Donald K. Smith.

Survived by mother, Micki; brothers, Mark (Sherri) and Ben (Jeannine); nephews, Alex and Harry and nieces Bri, Madison and Montana.

Visitation 1 hour prior to service at church.

Memorials preferred to Susan G Komen Foundation.

Heartfelt thanks to Candy's many wonderful friends who enriched her final weeks.
