Laurie can be remembered in so many ways. She and Pop Pop loved to listen and dance to Motown. Her greatest joy was being a Mom and MawMaw. During family events, Laurie could be seen at the table playing card or Yahtzee, competitively. One of her favorite hobbies was cooking for her family. She also enjoyed being at the lake or beach with her feet in the water.


She was enjoying her retirement years and delighted in spending quality time with family. We will always cherish and remember her kind, vibrant, sassy, fun-loving personality.
