Now that death has closed my eyes, Forget me - I hope not.
I have lived many years and treasure friends I hold dear.
Like many, my life was filled with joy and tears.
Each day I faced it without a lot of fear for I always knew
my Lord was near.
So my time on this earth is no more
I shall wait for you on the other shore.

I loved seeing Laura at our church rummage sale in Apple Creek. She would come faithfully twice a year saying she would come every month if we had one. And she always stayed to eat at the lunch stand often taking food home. She would always state her age and say she might not make it the next year. She was a very special person.

Laura, you are sadly missed already. I met you over 10 years ago when I first came to work in the area, at JoAnn fabrics. We met, we clashed, but I got you to warm up to me, and I cared for you in return!! I will treasure the time we had together...God's speed Mrs Laura

I have know Laura my whole life. I went to East Chippewa and when little I sat many sunday between her and he sister. Laura always called me her little girl and once and a while i would go home with them. She was the sweetest lady and i missed her after she went to Paradise but would still she her at craft shows. She will be missed. So sorry for your loss. Jeannette (Curie) Shoup

I’m so sorry for your loss. I sang many hymns that Laura played while attending Paradise with my grandma Maxine. Those two friends are reunited again.
