Allen Fieldhouse on the campus of the University of Kansas will be noticeably quieter when the Jayhawks take the court this winter. Their loudest supporter and biggest fan has moved on. Cinnamon Louise Smith will cheer on her team, her family and friends from heaven.

When Cinnamon wasn’t cheering on the Jayhawks in person, you could find her in front of the television rooting just as loudly for her team... And you better not say a peep in her company when the game is on or else you’d be in the dog house.

Cinnamon was born February 3, 1980, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but is a Kansas City girl through and through. Cinnamon was extremely passionate about her service to others and working in healthcare. She was a Hematology Research Coordinator in the KU Cancer Center Clinical Trials Unit.

Cinnamon attended Rainbow School at South-Broadland Presbyterian Church and later loved working with kids there. She is a graduate of Kansas City’s esteemed Pembroke Hill School and the University of Kansas. As a life long member of South-Broadland, her church friends were loved as family.

Cinnamon will be survived by her parents Dr. Shadrach and Deena Smith, her sister Jasmin Moore, Todd Moore her brother-in-law, her nephew Ezekiel who looks just like her and her loving partner Daniel English. We will miss Cinnamon’s smile that could warm your heart from across the world, her laughter that poured out joy and her hugs that made you never want to let go. We’ll miss her sweet tooth and insatiable love for donuts and desserts. But most of all we’ll miss her unyielding love, her passion, her strength and will and her devastating beauty inside and out.

Memorial services for Cinnamon will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, July 16 at South-Broadland Presbyterian Church, 7850 Holmes, Kansas City, MO. Donations in Cinnamon’s honor can be made to Rainbow School at 7850 Holmes, Kansas City, MO 64131.

No one had a bigger heart. No one had more love. No one was loved more than Cinnamon. We’ll miss you Cinnamon. We love you.
