January 23, 1919 - March 23, 2015
Beloved wife, aunt, godmother and friend. Laurie was born in New Mexico, lived in San Francisco, Hawaii, Yakima and for the last 20 years, Petaluma, California. She juggled her early work career with a passion for flying and took to the skies to earn her pilot’s license only to have its pursuit cut short by the war. She met the love of her life, Amos, on an impromptu date and the two married soon after. Laurie was active in each of her parish’s CCD programs as a teacher and coordinator. An avid sports fan, she enjoyed playing softball, had a lifelong love of the Giants and was a season ticket holder for the Forty-niners. Her love of the niners was shadowed only by her passion for opera. She was a season ticket holder with the San Francisco Opera and on Saturdays she had a standing date with the Met broadcast.
Laurie is survived by her husband, Amos, her godson Jeff, his wife, Barbara and their daughters Leigh and Erin.
There will be a memorial mass at St. James Parish in Petaluma.
Always gracious, always kind, she will be missed very much.
