Sylvia Joy Smith, 62, of Taylors Falls, MN passed away Monday, June 21, 2010 at home in her husband's arms. She had been struggling with scleroderma for over 30 years.

She was born December 8, 1947 to Lee Harry U. and Edythe C. (Nyquist) Lundquist in St. Croix Falls, WI. After graduating from Taylors Falls High School, Sylvia married Leslie R. Smith at the Taylors Falls Evangelical Lutheran Church in Taylors Falls, March 5, 1971.

Together they farmed the Nyquist-family farm for over seven years, then moved to their current home in 1980, which was on family land and built by Leslie. Sylvia enjoyed reading, fishing, camping, bible study groups and spending time with her friends and family, especially her grandchildren.

She is survived by her husband Leslie R. Smith (Taylors Falls, MN); stepson Neal D. Smith (White Bear Lake, MN); daughter Darla E. Smith (Taylors Falls, MN); daughter LeeAnn C. (Kristian) Vitalis (Taylors Falls, MN); grandchildren: Allen L. Smith, Stanze L. Smith, Mason D. Vitalis and Adam D. Vitalis; as well as several step-siblings, in-law siblings and many friends.

A memorial service honoring the life of Sylvia Smith will be at 10:30 a.m. Friday, June 25, 2010 at First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Taylors Falls with a reception immediately following.

Thank you to all who have touched her life; as she would say, "The Lord has been very good to me."
