Laurie lived for her family. They were her pride and joy especially her three beautiful daughters. The four of them shared an amazing bond that even death can not seperate. When she became a grandmother she was overjoyed and in love. Her love grew as her family expanded with more grandchildren. She absolutley adored each and everyone of them. Despite her illness she pushed on even though it was a struggle at times. She was strong, fearless yet loving, qualities that helped her get through the rough times. Her fiance' Ronald Robbins Jr. was so amazing during her illness. He took care of her every need with out hesitation. He was completely selfless and caring, qualities Laurie had fallen in love with. He was her rock, as she was his.
She spent her day's caring for her grandchildren, crocheting doileys, making hat's and mittens for her grandchildren, sewing and embrodering. One of her best talents was her cooking and baking. She was famous for her apple squares and her potato salad, a receipe she was handed down by her mother. She then handing it down to her daughters so they can continue the tradition.
Laurie was a planner. She wrote EVERYTHING down leaving little notes everywhere. She was an avid reader. Her favorite auther was Danielle Steele. Watching QVC was something she had done with her mother for many years and since her mothers passing she continued to watch as it reminded her of their bond. She especially loved to watch when “David in the Kitchen” was on. She loved Elvis and enjoyed listening to his music. She took a liking to the show “Pioneer Woman” and as a result her whole kitchen is decorated with the decore and the cupboards are filled with every pot/pan, cookie sheet and fry pan you could ever imagine.
