Beloved wife, mother, NeNe, daughter, sister and friend, Laura was the rock of our family. She was the picture taker, family get-together coordinator, and the calm one of the family.

Laura loved life and loved people, leaving behind a host of friends. Her pride and joy were her grandchildren and she went to every ballgame and dance recital they were involved in.
