Laura's compassionate understanding and personalized care of our mother while she resided at Croatan Village was a true blessing to our family, which I am sure does not come as a surprise to her loved ones. She was not only a warm-hearted person, she put that love into daily practice. We will remember her fondly and with gratitude.

I met Laura when I was in the 4th grade and I got rezoned from Graham A Barden to Havelock Elementary. We because friends quickly and grew up together. She was so much fun to be with. She also took care of my mom, when she was in Courtyards for Alzheimer's- my mom adored her as well! You will be missed my sweet friend!

Laura was my friend of almost 30 years. Two years ago she became my savior when I was struggling to provide schooling and after school care for my grandchildren, who I had adopted. She took them in while I worked and was their teacher for almost 2 years. She took them early and kept them until I got off work at 5. They loved her as a second grandma. My heart is broken and I miss our twice daily encounters where we were always joking and laughing. I haven’t been able to tell them yet, but I know she’d be telling me to just tell them. They need to know. We will always love our Miss Laura. Rest easy, my friend💔

I am so sad to hear this. I met Laura when we were 20 years old. 1981. She was my next door neighbor on Vine st. We hit it off right away. She was hilarious and had the biggest heart. I never knew what she would say next. She was a wonderful friend. We had some great times. We went to big time wrestling matches, listened to music, pranked my husband. We froze his underwear in the freezer. She towered over me. I’m only 4’10.”. We were a sight to see. Through Facebook, we have communicated from time to time and we had a phone conversation about 2 years ago. Same ole Laura! I loved her. My condolences to the family. As I am a religious person, I know that she is out of pain and walking on the streets of gold . Probably telling Jesus how it’s done!
