KRISTEN DYSON Obituary
DysonApril 16, 1971 - April 7, 2017 NICHOLS HILLS Kristen Little Bird Dyson, loving wife and mother, born April 16, 1971, passed away April 7, 2017, in Moscow, Russia, at age 45 from complications during her treatment to cure MS. Kristen was born to Sandra (Sudderth) and Forrest Douglas "Dutch" Little Bird, in Weatherford, OK. She was one of three children. Kristen was named by her uncle, Judge Alan Markum. Upon graduation from Weatherford High School, Kristen earned a BS at Southwestern Oklahoma State University, where she met her husband of 22 years, Bryan Dyson. They shared a wonderful marriage and their love for their son, Brayden, now at Baylor University in Texas; and daughter, Brooklynn, a sophomore at Casady School in Oklahoma City. The past nine years, Kristen spent much of her time serving as a volunteer at her children's school. She was mostly dedicated to the store on campus called the Casady Cupboard, where she worked and developed genuine relationships with the faculty, parents and children. She poured endless love, care and support into her Casady family. Time after time, she was praised as tough in the face of MS, a warrior in her struggle against illness. She was called "The cool mom!" She liked traveling, watching Leland from Dog the Bounty Hunter and listening to Harry Connick Jr. Many family and friends feel Kristen is now flying on angel wings toward the pain-free life she so deserved. Of all the memories, everyone knew the one bedrock for Kristen was her love for Brayden and Brooklynn. They were her greatest achievement, and her proudest title was Mom. Kristen is survived by husband, Bryan Dyson; son, Brayden Dyson; and daughter, Brooklynn Dyson; all of Nichols Hills, OK; and in Weatherford, OK, her mother and father, Sandra and Dutch Little Bird; and sister, Sherry Little Bird; also her half-brothers, Dr. Forrest Little Bird and wife LaLa and their children, of San Antonio, TX; and Anthony Little Bird, of Dallas, TX; in Del Mar, CA, father-in-law, Bob and his wife Loraine Dyson; in Nichols Hills, OK, her mother-in-law, Margaret and her husband Bob Mills. Kristen was preceded in death by her brother, Shannon Little Bird. A Memorial Service for Kristen Dyson will be held at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 22, 2017, at the Casady School Chapel, 9500 N. Pennsylvania Ave., Oklahoma City, OK. Graveside Services in Weatherford will be held privately.
