As a girl she played soccer, basketball and softball and in high school played varsity soccer and swimming. She was an avid reader and excelled in the language arts. Laura was an active member of the St. Anne youth group, participating in many activities including multiple mission trips to help those less fortunate. She was previously employed at Three Rivers Optical as a technician where she made many friends. From her early childhood, Laura was a kind, loving soul who gave her parents great joy.
