Laura Morris-Smalley was welcomed into our Heavenly Father’s Kingdom on November 14, 2020. She was at Integris Baptist Medical Center in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, for medical treatment after discovering a brain aneurysm. Her mother and brothers were permitted to visit her late Friday evening. Her husband and daughter ministered care and comfort until she passed. Her funeral service will begin at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, November 18, 2020 at the Friends Chapel Church: 12212 S. Redlands Road, Coyle, Oklahoma, 73027 with interment following at Oak Grove Cemetery in Coyle, OK. 73027. Strode Funeral Home and Cremation is in charge of arrangements.

Laura was born January 8, 1972 in Clovis, New Mexico. She was a member of the 1990 class at Perry High School in Perry, Oklahoma. She was blessed with a daughter Jerri Dawn and later a son Ty. She was a wonderful mother. Her children always came first.

On June 29, 2006, she married Kirk Smalley. They were the quintessential couple. They shared so many interests and loved spending time together. They loved hunting, fishing, baseball, gardening and travelling together. He was her knight in shining armor and she was the light of his life.

Beautiful, hardworking, fierce, intense, loving, talented, charitable, humble, funny, faithful, loyal, tenacious. These are descriptive words that come to mind when thinking of Laura. But she was so much more. She was a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, cousin, friend, counselor, avid hunter, angler, wonderful cook and animal lover.

Laura loved her friends and family fiercely. She especially loved children and they loved her. It didn’t matter if they were relatives, neighbors, friends or complete strangers. If she loved you, you knew it. She was always there for you, even if it was a chat on the phone, a short text or message or to “roll up” her sleeves and do the hard work that needed to be done. She always was taking care of someone else. Cooking meals and delivering them, remembering your birthday, making sure every kid she knew had that special Christmas gift they were dreaming of.

Some of you know Laura because of her, Kirk’s, and Dawn’s unselfish, tireless work with Stand For The Silent, a non-profit foundation started with their help after the loss of their beloved Ty. What amazing things she helped accomplish as she and Kirk travelled the world sharing Ty’s story. They have helped so many children and adults work through their own pain, fear, and suffering. It is estimated their efforts have touched over 1.5 million children worldwide.

She shied away from the limelight and recognition. She never wanted a “fuss” on her behalf. She simply just wanted a “simple” life. We will miss her beautiful smile and infectious laugh. Until we meet again!

She is preceded in death by her father Richard Dean Morris; her brother Jerry Dean Morris; and her son Richard Ty Field Smalley.

She is survived by her husband Kirk Smalley; her daughter Jerri Dawn and her husband Cody Behne; her mother Carolyn Jo Avery Morris; two brothers Billy Jo Morris and Dustin Wayne Morris; many nieces, nephews, and friends around the world.

Memorial gifts may be made in her name to Stand for the Silent at or mailed to: Stand for the Silent: 6918 W 128th St, Perkins, OK 74059-4281.

I saw Laura and Kirk when they visited the University of Nebraska Kearney. They brought a powerful presentation and message to the UNK community who embraced them and what they had to share.
Laura's impact will live on with those students, faculty and community members who came to hear her speak and share her story. Her impact will live on because of her courage and compassion.
May she reset in the Lord's eternal peace.

We met Laura at a Stand for the Silent event in Nebraska when our son was in high school. Laura and Kirk was so important in the role of showing our son how important and loved that he was. They both spent 10+ minutes talking with him. We will always appreciate their kindness. We are praying for comfort and peace for Kirk and her extended family. God is welcoming a lot of wonderful people into his kingdom at this time. Love from Nebraska, Kirk.
