Laura had a love for modern square dancing, which led to the creation of LaurAl Crinolines - a business that she maintained for many years. She enjoyed 25 of her winters in Mesa, Arizona with family and friends, and loved traveling especially by car and motorhome. The biggest joy of her life was her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
