Ms. Laura is well-known for her gourmet home cooking. She was a fun-loving mom with an endless ability to randomly coin quirky phrases and words that would make you chuckle. Her passion was boldly sharing the message of Christ’s salvation with everyone she met. She was a prayer warrior and a faithful woman of God. There is no doubt that when she came face to face with her Savior, she heard “Well done, my good and faithful servant.” (Matt 25:23)
The family wishes to thank Haydel Hospice for their support and tender loving care. All her caregivers were superb.
In lieu of flowers please send donations to Family Worship Center of Baton Rouge, LA https://fwcbr.org/donate where she was a longtime, faithful church member.
