WOODWARD – A 22-year-old Arkansas woman serving a Mormon mission in Oklahoma died Friday night after she was hit by a pickup while riding her bicycle, church officials said Sunday.
Alesa Smith, 22, of Benton, Ark., had been in the state for about 10 months on a mission with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Nolan Taylor, president of missions for the church in Oklahoma City, said Smith had worked in several other cities and had just begun in Woodward, where the wreck happened.
“She is a lovely, kind young woman and was loved by everyone who knows her,” Taylor said. “A lot of folks here were blessed to get to know her.”
