Laura was dearly loved by many cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and will be greatly missed by many relatives
on all sides of her family.
Laura was very proud of her $3.00 or CLR (as she affectionately loved to call us) and grandkids, especially the joy of becoming a Chi Nokomis to Aiden Vincent. Laura had many hobbies, she enjoyed baking pies, catering, hitting the pow wow trail, thrift shopping, bingo and casino. She never paid regular price for anything. She was also a Phase 10 “Slayer”, during which nobody ever volunteers to sit to her left.

“Mom was a strong, hard working,
independent woman, Our Hero”.
