Laura was a graduate of Tyrone High School and following her graduation she was employed by the Cresson State School and the Altoona Center, where she cared deeply for the residents and from which she retired.

At the request of the deceased, no funeral service will be held.

Due to her struggle with chronic kidney disease, the family requests that in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Laura’s memory to Thomas E. Starzl Transplant Patient Institute, UPMC Montefiore 7 South, 3459 Fifth Ave., Pittsburgh, PA 15213.

Arrangements are by Richard H. Searer Funeral Home Inc., Tyrone.
