Our special angel, Laura Teresa Smout, 93, made her journey home on July 13, 2021. We are so happy for her but will miss her sweet smile. She was a bright part of the Heritage Senior Living Center in Preston, Idaho.

She graduated from Preston High School and then moved to Salt Lake City to attend Business College. Her life-long career was the Secretary to the General Authorities of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
