A mother of three and nurse to thousands, Laurie was a graduate of University of Buffalo School of Nursing in 1975 and worked her entire life as a pediatric nurse at both Boston Children’s Hospital and Newton Wellesley Hospital. Laurie retired last year from her first love of nursing to her retirement dream job at the Dedham Women’s Exchange and was living it up in her second act.
She was a lifelong nurse and touched many people’s lives. Selfless and kind, she spent her life caring for others. She loved spending time with her family, hanging with the Cabin Girls, Bon Jovi, and California chardonnay. She had an energy and zest for life that could not be contained. Her smile and sass will be remembered fondly by her family and friends for years to come.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Laurie’s memory to Boston Children’s Hospital or the Dedham Women’s Exchange, 445 Washington Street, Dedham MA 02026.
A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
