She was a long-time member of the Kingwood United Methodist Church, and had been a beloved employee at Rowland-Ballard School of Dance and Gymnastics since 2006.
Laura loved music, the Dallas Cowboys, attending the annual “Nutracker” productions, and decorating her home every Christmas with her legendary snowman collection. She gave service to the community over four years in commitment to the National Charity League with Jillian. She was full of love and life, and even during her final months, kept her spirits up, refused to give up the fight, and never allowed others to give up on her. She will be sorely missed by all who knew and loved her.

I have fought a good fight,  I have 
finished my course,  I have kept 
the faith.
Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day:  and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. – 2 Timothy 4:7-8
