LaurieAnne was the most multi-dimensional person you could have ever met. Even though she took pride in being the wife of Fletcher and wore the role of mother to Thomas and Brooklyn as if she created motherhood herself, she was even more. Her devotion to her mother was unmatched and ever-present. She was protective over those she loved and giving to those in need. Family was priority for her, and she defined it by love and inclusion no matter who you were.

When she walked into a room, she was a force of nature and no matter what season it had been prior to her entrance, she would set the tone and temperature from that moment on. Often her visit into a room was a blur, as she would make her mark by expressing her opinion or sharing her moments of sharp banter, and then like a quick wind she would be out the door. She was witty, and her laughter would fill up a room as she told her stories about her latest goof-up or the thoughts of her newest project idea came up. She had a gift for giving, whether it was collecting clothing for a family in need, serving as a leader for a local organization, working diligently for her children's schools, or helping a best friend with her "straight-talk." She always wanted to help and give to others. Her talent and creativity was unmatched by anyone and anything. Everything she touched was beautiful, perfectly arranged, warm, and lovely. When she hosted or organized an event, she concerned herself with the details because it wasn't about it being the best, it was about making people feel special. She was the girly-girl who was raised with the dollhouses and books, who learned to love trekking through the creek with her family on Sunday afternoon. She was opinionated, but never cruel. You always knew where you stood with LaurieAnne. If she didn't like something, she told you and in love she didn't hold back from what she thought you needed to hear. She had a wide circle of friends of all ages, shapes, and varying backgrounds whom she entertained with her desire to include them in shopping trips, dinners out, and her hilarity in text messages. Often misunderstood as bossy, it was her honesty and high instinct of problem solving skills that launched her ideas and opinions about how you could do something or fix something. Always determined and often headstrong, she evoked strength and love in her methods of being herself no matter what.

LaurieAnne was happy, loud, funny, loving, classy, beautiful, and always took pride in her southern girl ways.

LaurieAnne graduated from Lakeside High School and had an MBA from Augusta University. She was a member of Grace United Methodist Church where she was currently serving as president of the Grace United Methodist Women. She was active in the Merriwether PTO, the North Augusta Mothers Club, and many other social activities.
