Laura enjoyed being with her family most of all, summer nights on the deck, being in the sunshine, the beach, gardening, taking long walks and exercising, cooking and baking and making her amazing coffee cakes for people during holidays, helping others in need, listening to the oldies and jazz, live bands, dancing the night away, a nice glass of Chardonnay, Scrabble, her dog Cooper, Sunday crossword puzzles, drawing and calligraphy, painting and restoring statues, making others feel special, old movies, decorating, singing, coffee with friends, dining out, shopping, going to Cranberry Fest, taking lots of family photos, prayer, sunflowers, and the color yellow.
She was a member of her Holy Catholic Faith, a mother’s group, and the Adams County Running Club.
Laura was preceded in death by her parents, Larry and Carol Schwager.
