After a long battle with cancer, Wyatt Smidt, a member of the Zion school family, has passed and entered the loving arms of his heavenly Father.  At Zion, Wyatt was part of our daily prayer life since the diagnosis was given.  We mourn with his family as we will all miss Wyatt, but we rejoice that he has gone to a place that is incomparably better than this vale of tears.  We know this is the case because Wyatt was a baptized child of Christ.  

The following is the the obituary provided by Horner-Lieske-McBride-Kuhl.
