Laura leaves behind many cousins, nieces and nephews. All of her large family was special to her and she remained in touch with many of them until very late in her life. Laura’s greatest pleasure in life was talking about her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and how wonderful they all were. She was the “Memory Data Bank” for the family archives and could recite names, birthdates and children’s names by the dozens. She could reflect on childhood memories with pinpoint precision and was the “GO-TO” source for phone numbers. She will be greatly missed by all who loved her.
