Laura worked early on as a recess monitor at McIntire Elementary where her daughter attended, the Fulton Wal-Mart for many years, Jinx Books and most recently RCW Gift & Tack. She was also the best apple spokesperson for Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, as she worked fall festivals around the state with her son, Buddy. She was active with charitable organizations such as Relay for Life and Locks of Love. Laura did not know a stranger. She was the most selfless and kindhearted person you would ever hope to meet. She was a wife, a mom, a horse show mom, a grandma to many, an aunt, a daughter and a friend. She was a lover of all things, especially her grandkids, Halloween and jewelry. If you knew her, you know exactly what I mean. She would drop whatever she was doing to help anyone and usually bring you a gift when she did. That was just mom. She loved Willie Nelsonshe may or may not have gotten a kiss on the cheek outside from him outside the Silver Bullet, but that's just details. She loved reading stories and telling stories. Working at Jinx Books was such a perfect fit for her. Road trips around Missouri with Bobher favorite pastime. They have driven every back road in the state of Missouri and visited every park by the river, as well as every hole in the wall antique shop. On that note, her oldest granddaughter, Madison, was lucky enough to have probably visited every park in Missouri as a kid, traveling the state with her grandparents on their epic adventures. Everyone said she lived vicariously through her daughter, Kristina, as she spent endless weekends as a groom at horse shows all over the state. If you think way back, you might remember seeing the two of them riding together in the Christmas parade on her beloved horse, Appie. That was just mom.
