After marriage in 1965, Norris and Jimmie built a home in Oklahoma City when Norris Lee was born. The family relocated to Champaign, IL in 1967 to fulfill Norris' desire to work with children. Norris was a school social worker for over 20 years and served as president of the Champaign Education Association. He spent time in Florida and Pinehurst, NC, after retirement, but he returned to Oklahoma to be near family. His smile, graciousness, kindness, and loyalty will be missed by many friends and family members. A memorial will be held in Norman at Trinity Baptist Church -- 2 p.m., July 5, 2019 in the Fellowship Hall -- during the Smith family reunion.
