Lynda Kay Smith

March 10, 1951 — May 5, 2019

Lynda Kay Smith, 68, of Marble Falls, Texas passed away May 5, 2019. She was born to Richard Keith and Bonnie Lou (Amick) Smith on March 10, 1951 in Wichita, Kansas.

There are so many things to be remembered about Lynda Kay Smith, we would need a billion lifetimes to do so. She was a wizard of forward movement, both a student and a teacher. For us, the biggest lesson she left (aside from what should be the obvious difference between a salad and a dinner fork) was to never let life harden you – keep your heart open to love always – and never, not ever, shall you take any trash from anyone.

She was a collector and protector of precious things, humans and animals included but memories especially. To have known her (even if only for a small time), or been loved by her (even if just a little bit) is to say you know what true magic feels like. She was the field of dreams in human form. Now, heaven has the loveliest angel. On earth for a while, in our hearts forever. We love you.

She is survived by her husband, Matt Schnitzler of Marble Falls, Texas; son, Justin Smith and wife Crystal of Wichita, Kansas; brothers, Scott Smith and wife Gisela of Lone Tree, Colorado, Craig Smith and wife Debbie of Joplin, Missouri, Kevin Smith of Wichita, Kansas; sister, Melanie Banks and husband Mike of Lacrosse, Wisconsin; grandsons, Gunner, Fenton, and Wyatt; nieces, Kari, Lindsey, Alex, and Katie; nephews, Mike, Jeff, Andrew, and Sam; numerous extended family members and friends also survive.
