Laura was an incredible lady. She had a heart of gold and loved everyone. She was soft spoken and had so much patience. Laura was known as kookum to many students. I loved Laura for the person she was. May her memories help the family and extended family through this difficult time. God bless you all.

From: Barbara Ferris
Relation: Co-worker and friend

My deepest Sympathy to all Laura’s children, grandchildren and family members. She was a wonderful person with a good heart and a great spirit. As a teacher at Ashmont Elementary and Secondary Schools for 22 years, I came to know Laura very well. I am truly sorry that I am not able to attend her service, but I send you all my prayers and love at this difficult time. She will be fondly remembered!

From: Janet Morrow
Relation: I worked with Laura at Ashmont Elementary School.

My sympathies to Laura’s family. She was indeed a special lady. Always kind, patient and caring. She never raised her voice and the children responded to her quiet, caring manner. Laura also had a great sense of fun and enjoyed a good joke. Working with her was a pleasure. She will be missed.

This special lady was blessed with an internal bouquet that was vibrant with a loving spirit, a gentle heart, a humorous personality and a joyful soul. I will miss her. My heart-felt condolences go out to all of her loved ones.

I am so sorry to hear that Laura has passed. She was a wonderful caring person and she will be missed by everyone in her family and all of her friends and co workers. My deepest sympathy to all.

From: trina anderson
Relation: she was my teacher in ashmont...

She will be missed, such a kind hearted lady, she was my teacher in elementary.. our class was very rambunctious, but she had this ability to settle everyone down with never raising her voice.in the past few years I ran into her, after so many years she remembered me. She remembered my name, my stories. She reminded me of so much in my younger days. She will be missed, condolences to the entire family, friends, community, those who met this incredible woman… heaven gained a angel.

From: Shelly Garner - Jean
Relation: She taught me at Ashmont school

Our deepest sympathy and prayers go out to you kathy, ken and all your family. We also got to know your mom through school events. She was a wonderful lady and will deeply missed.

From: Janet Lawton
Relation: I worked with laura

As was already said Laura was a kookum of the heart for many children. She bloomed with a smile when ever she spoke of a child and was tolerant of them all. Laura accepted people as they were with out concern for their background. If your had to call her anything it was an Angel on Earth and now she is in heaven.
