When she moved to Lonoke, she united with New Jerusalem COGIC. After moving from Lonoke, she attended and served in ministries in the Conway area until her death.
Laura was a very busy "Bea." She worked within the community spreading love and joy. Laura worked for adopted grandparents for three years, and senior citizens for over ten years. She enjoyed cooking and baking. Her passion was hospitality in sewing and cooking. She always fed people at her home and apartment complex.
Laura loved to sing at different functions. Everyone's favorite was "Midnight Cry." When she was asked to sing at different services, she never said no, always ready and willing. She will be loved and missed forever by family and friends.
