She was born in New York, New York on December 4, 1929 a daughter of the late Wilfred and Wilma (Slavouchka) Libbe. She was educated in NY and ME. Laura married her husband, Robert L.

As her life progressed Laura found herself cherishing her role as “Grammy” or “Nannie” to her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was delighted when they would visit, relishing every moment, and held each one in a special place in her heart. Laura was an exceptionally talented woman, being an expert at creating beauty from what others considered scraps of nothing. She loved gifting her creations to her family and loved ones. One of her talents included sewing, crafting projects such as school smocks for her daughters, Halloween costumes for her grandchildren, Raggedy Ann and Andy Dolls, stuffed animals, and baby blankets for new arrivals in the family. Her bobbin was always full as she stitched life's stressors away! Laura fed her soul by tending to her numerous vegetable and flower gardens that surrounded her property. She was always eager to bless loved ones with the products of her labor. She also loved being outdoors rocking in her swing, spending time observing the birds and happenings in nature. We will always cherish and remember our beloved mother who constantly gave everything while expecting nothing in return. She poured her life into teaching and guiding us, always lending a listening ear, and assisting whenever and wherever she could. Her love, grace, forgiveness, and perseverance will always be an inspiration to us. She was simply magnificent!

I echo my sister Toby's comments about dear Laura. What a lovely person ~ we were lucky to know her. How lucky for her family & loved ones to have had her grace & example all these years! She was a true loving matriarch, so caring and sweet even to me, a daughter in distress; Laura soothed me saying, "I pray for your mom Lorraine." I will never forget her and her kindness; indeed she taught me on every visit. May she rest in eternal peace.

Condolences to Laura's family from the family of Lorraine Haber. Lorraine was Laura's roommate at Clover, you may remember. So sorry to hear she passed.

Laura was so kind and caring, looking after Lorraine, always sharing stories about her children. Laura was well-loved by her doting children, who took care to take her laundry out, have her phone TV shows available, and decorate her room with family photos and her beautiful dolls. In better times, Laura and Lorraine would have been closer friends, but Lorraine's life was drawing to a close. Enjoy your memories and mementos of Laura, such a lovely woman.

So glad I happened to see the obituary in the paper, so I could send this message.

Peace,
Toby Haber-Giasson and family
