Laurie fought ALS for four years before losing her fight on December 21, 2015. Her love for the Trimble Community was shown thru her many volunteer organizations she participated in. Her home and kitchen were always open to everyone & her greatest pleasure was helping anyone in need. You could always find a group of kids at her house after ball games or a snow day. She loved feeding and taking care of all of them. Her cooking was well known, especially for holiday’s or family dinners. She always had a smile on her face, even as her illness progressed. She loved her family and was fiercely devoted to them. If she could leave you with anything, it would be to find your faith in God and share it with your family and friends. Live each day as the most precious gift and never part from each other without saying I love you. She will always be loved by her family and those who knew her.
Why We Need Your Help
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive, fatal neuromuscular disease that slowly robs the body of its ability to walk, speak, swallow and breathe. The life expectancy of a person with ALS averages 2 to 5 years from the time of diagnosis.
Every 90 minutes a person in this country is diagnosed with ALS and every 90 minutes another person will lose their battle against this disease. ALS occurs throughout the world with no racial, ethnic, or socioeconomic boundaries.
ALS can strike anyone. Presently there is no known cause of the disease, yet it still costs loved ones an average of $250,000 a year to provide the care people living with ALS and their families need. Join the movement to provide help and hope today!
