About the Event

Laura lived to 103; she died peaceably in her sleep on April 18, 2015, in her home.  Laura was a proud and faithful member of the King Street Church of Christ and later the Holgate Street Church of Christ. She was very active in the church and enjoyed putting on teas and fashion shows, working with the sewing committee, providing clothes to people in need, and visiting those who were sick. She said she never missed a Sunday. She was known for her keen sense of style and classy attire. She had a love for shopping at The Bon Marché and Frederick & Nelson, where she could always be found after work on Fridays. Hats were an essential part of her attire, so she’d often shop at Henrietta’s on Madison. She and Irene showed off their hats at church fashion shows and often won prizes. Laura loved baking pies, cakes and cooking at family gatherings. To hear her tell it, she also mastered making the perfect pitcher of sweet tea.
