My deepest sympathies to Laura's family and friends. I knew Laura as a fellow graduate student at PSU. She was modest and soft spoken, but had a wonderful sense of humor--I could tell that she was a real salt of the earth soul right away. I also quickly learned how darn smart she was!! Years later, our paths crossed again at a memorial service for a PSU faculty member. She was the same brilliant, warm person I remembered from nearly 20 years earlier. She left an impression on everyone she came into contact with. I know she will be missed by many.

I worked with Laura many years back at Wordsworth bookstore in Cambridge. She was such a kind, funny, intelligent soul. i remember her beautiful smile which i see again in all the photos shared here.

There was a calm to Laura that was preternatural to her age. She made me laugh with her sense of humor and quirkiness but I also felt like she grounded me too. Laura and I were roommates in Eliot House, and I loved it because there was always something going on with our group of 8. I always imagined meeting up at reunions for many years in the future with our roomies. I'm sending the warmest thoughts to her husband and family.
