Dawn R. Caudill, 42, of Greensburg, passed away Wednesday, May 28, 2014, at Hospice of Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis.
Born April 21, 1972 in Indianapolis, she was the daughter of Mildred Long and David Smith. She married David Caudill April 5, 2008 in Batesville.
A homemaker, she was also a member of the Spina Bifida Association of Central Indiana.
Dawn was crazy about pastel colors. Her wedding was themed in pastel colors of the rainbow, from the bridesmaids dresses to sand used during the ceremony.
She loved children and proudly became the adopted mother of David’s two children four years ago. An animal lover as well, along with the four of them, they also filled their house with five dogs. David teased that Dawn’s favorite hobby was shopping. Although she liked shoes, her weakness was purses -- so much so that she became a dealer for Thirty-One Purses and Handbags. He also hinted that she was a fan of “chick flicks.”
She is survived by her husband David; daughter Rosy Caudill; son Sebastian Caudill, both at home; sister Donna Judy of Indianapolis; brothers Greg Smith of Brazil, Indiana, Steve Smith of Watertown New York, Tim Smith of Speedway; stepsister Mila Walker of Noblesville, Rhonda Harris of Indianapolis; stepbrother Randy Harris Jr. of Indianapolis and her parents David Smith of Indianapolis and Mildred Long of Speedway.
She was preceded in death by her brother, Danny Smith.
Visitation is from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. Thursday, June 5, at the Weigel Funeral Home.
Funeral services follow at 2 p.m., Rev. Steve Yeaton and Rev. Barry Morton officiating.
Burial will follow in the Shelby Christian Cemetery in Versailles.
