A graduate of McMaster University Laura’s compassion for others led to a lifelong career in social work. Laura was a champion for people with disabilities and their families in both Sarnia and Maple Ridge.
Laura believed strongly in volunteering and was a founding member of Cythera House in Maple Ridge. Laura loved friends, her sorority, a good book, travel, slot machines, martinis, and above all her family.
