She married Barnett Goodson in 1954; Laura and Barnett lived in Midwest City, Oklahoma where they made a home for their four children: Larry, Laurie, Leonard, and Lowell. Laura was a very caring and loving person; she had compassion on both animals and people, adopting strays and helping anyone who was in need and being a good neighbor. Her life was spent in lovingly caring for her husband, her children, her grand children her dear mother, Anna. She worked for Southwestern Bell Telephone Company as a long distant operator for 33years. After retirement, she kept busy doing the things she loved most: quilting, gardening, going to garage sales, and mowing grass. Once she drove her riding lawn mower from her house on North Douglas to her son Larry’s house on Post Road a distance of about 2 1/2 miles. When Larry got home, she was just finishing mowing and he frantically exclaimed, “Mother what are you doing? Why did you ride that mower all the way over here?” Her simply reply was , “Because the grass needed mowing.” She then replied, “ Besides, the police followed me for part of the way.” Laura’s life was truly a mixture of joys and sorrows: Her husband of fifteen years passed away in 1972; then in January 1977, her two middle children (Leonard and Laurie) passed away within 12 hours of each other and their funeral was held together on the same day, then her dear sainted mother, Anna James, died in March of 1997; then her beloved daughter-in-law (Lowell’s wife, Sheri) died in December 2004. However, through all these sad times her faith in the Lord Jesus Christ remained strong. Sister Laura was a faithful member of Bethlehem Primitive Baptist Church of Oklahoma City where she attended regularly until her failing health conditions prevented her attendance. All of her brothers and sisters in Christ loved her very much and she will be greatly missed by all. She is survived by two sons: Larry of Midwest City, OK and Lowell of Durant, Ok; 7 grandchildren, several great-grandchildren, and a host of other relatives and friends.
