Laura was a strong-willed, determined, and fiercely independent redhead. Laura was in a wheelchair, but never let her disability stand in her way. She played violin, and wheelchair basketball. Laura retired from Gamestop in 2014 and went on to open her own business as a Travel Agent. She was an avid volunteer at the Dallas Zoo and helped to take care of the Gorilla’s and a member of the Grapevine Chamber of Commerce and the Grapevine Rotary club. She was kind-hearted and compassionate, inseparable from her mother and she loved flowers.



To honor her life, a Liturgy of the Word will be held at 10:00am on Saturday at Bluebonnet Hills Funeral Home in Colleyville, TX. Laura will be laid to rest at Pine Hill Cemetery in Davenport, IA. at a later date.
