  • My condolences to the family. Laura was a member of the C & D Senior Center and she loved to take casino trips. She would tell us to “drop her off at the casino and come back later to get her”, She was friendly to all, and well-liked. We loved her little high heel shoes she would wear. (They hurt my feet!!!) May her memory be a blessing to all. May she rest in peace. Susan Shertok
