Laurel graduated from Morton High School, Class of 1970. After high school she attended Don Roberts Beauty School. She was a dedicated hairdresser for 50 years. She was the co-owner of Laurel and Angel’s Salon. She was currently an independent operator at Amber Gold Salon. Throughout her 50-year career, Laurel has touched many lives as a selfless and humble servant. Her clients were more than appointments, her co-workers more than peers...they were her extended family.
Laurel was a member of Job’s Daughters and a 50-year member of the Order of the Eastern Star. She belonged to the Hammond P.T.A. for many years and was honored as a P.T.A. State Life recipient. She was a member of Peace United Church of Christ.
Laurel’s life revolved around her joy of being David’s mother. She encouraged him to be the man he is today. To say that she loved him beyond measure is an undeniable truth. She will forever be his Ma, his inspiration, his role model for diligence and commitment.
Laurel was beloved by so many dear family and friends over her lifetime they are impossible to list...you know who you are. Thank you for blessing her with your love and friendship. Laurel was “mom” to many, auntie and nana to others, a sister to even more...they were as dear to her as family. She will be remembered by her hearty laugh, loving and generous devotion, as a skillful listener and trusted confidant, and her wise and often given advice and guidance.
