She was born on November 7, 1934 to Charlie and Anna (Sestak) Lloyd. She graduated from Gonzales High School in 1953; where she was a cheerleader and class favorite. Laura was blessed with her only child, Jane Ann, and later grandson, Kolby Kifer. She was a member of the Gonzales Ladies Golf Association where she served as President for 2 years. Laura was a founding member of the Monday – Thursday Bridge Club, pioneering bridge playing in Gonzales.

She was a faithful and lifelong member of St. James Catholic Church and the St. James Catholic Daughters. Laura also taught C.C.D. in the early 70’s. The family wishes to send a thank you to the staff at the Texan Rehabilitation Nursing Facility and a special thank you to Deidra Kuntschik and Lois Wilson for their love and kindness.

Love that girl,! What a great friend and bridge partner. Bridge took us on so many fun trips! I still see us marching while Laura carried our flag for our morning pledge of allegiance. She was in the first class of the Baffin Bay Babes Bridge Club and kept us all entertained with her wit and endless stories.
I love her and will miss her always!

RIP My Friend. My sympathies and prayers to her sweet family.
