She was a servant and genuine in every detail of her personality. Her children and grandchildren were everything to Laura. If they were in any event, Laura was their supporting their efforts. The creek or lake was Lauras favorite place to be. She couldnt wait to take the family camping and fishing. She spent time outside in her yard raising vegetables and flowers, sharing them with friends and family. There was nothing better than the afternoon shopping or maybe hanging out with her friends. When she was resting, she had a word search puzzle in her hand. She enjoyed gathering with her family for holiday dinners and a chance to spend the day with those she loved. A Christian by faith, she attended the Victory House of Praise church in Hulbert. The Lord took this good and faithful servant home from her labors on December 21st, 2017 in Tahlequah, OK at the age of 60. She will be missed by all the family and friends she cherished.
