Laura was fun-loving, goofy at times, and always a ham for the camera lens. She adored wildlife and nature and had a green thumb. She was sure to leave others with a smile with those crazy faces she made and her beautiful smile. She never thought twice about getting her hands dirty, playing games with her kids when they were young, and she rarely refused a good family card or board game. She was a loving and caring mother as well as a beautiful daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, and friend. Her beauty came from within and her heart touched so many.

Family and friends are invited to drop by and celebrate her life and to remember the good times. She adored children so please bring yours! Laura’s celebration of life will be Saturday, June 8, 2024 from 12-2 pm at 701 Whaley Street, Columbia, SC.
