Laurel I miss you so much. I'll miss bumping into you at Wildflower & Flower Farm. I'll miss hearing you practice your mandolin at my house with teacher Dave. I'll miss your keen insight into our monthly book picks. I will miss commiserating with you about our mutual braces. I think of you everyday when 'Laurel' memories pop into my head. They are always lovely memories of a kind, funny, generous person....

Girls - your mom touched so many lives in so many ways. I know you are all proud of her and what she accomplished. You are her legacy... she loved you all so much. She is forever in your heart & will continue to whisper motherly advice in your ear for the rest of your lives .....

Leo - I know your heart is broken and I am so, so sorry. There are no words.....

Laurel will be missed so much. If Laurel was involved we were involved. Skyridge to Innerwheel. We were privileged to be part of the family. Much love & sympathy to the McFarland-Jeske families.
You will always be with us Laurel, your forever friends.

Laurel meant so much to so many people. She made each of us feel valued. She brightened our days and caught us up in her enthusiasm. Her absolute joy in her family was a delight to witness. Losing her is beyond painful. Rest in peace my friend.

Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.
We all deeply miss you.

I have known Laurel for many years...our daughters are good friends. But, most of all, she was the person who held our book club to a higher standard. She made me think about books I have read and I will miss that. Laurel, you were such a lovely light of the world...it seems a bit darker without you. My love and support goes out to Leo and the girls.

I met Laurel through InnerWheel and got to spend a few fantastic days getting to know her better in San Antonio last month. She spoke of her love for her family and especially her children and grandchildren. She showed me so many pictures and I could tell that family meant the world to her. I’m so grateful for the time I spent with her and will mourn the loss of a new friend and a wonderful woman. Laurel you will be deeply missed. ❤️💕

I meant Laurel 5 years ago when I became a member of Inner Wheel. She was one of the most dynamic, caring and energetic people that I have ever met. She was truly inspirational. I feel privileged to have known her and she will be greatly missed.
