Laura Evelyn Willenbring, 92, of Pilot Grove Missouri, passed away peacefully at Katy Manor on July 31, 2012. There will be no funeral or memorial services, and the family suggests that any memorial contributions be given to Saint Joseph Catholic Church in Pilot Grove.
Laura leaves behind four children: Jerry Willenbring of Lee's Summit and his late wife Lea, Paul Ronald Willenbring of Shawnee Mission and his wife Jacque, Peggy Mayfield of Pilot Grove and her husband Dean, Patty Hinshaw of Sedalia and her late husband Carl. Laura also leaves behind six grandchildren: Jennifer Litchentaylor and her husband Jim, Jeremy Willenbring, Jimmie Mayfield and his wife Amanda, Christopher Mayfield, Lori Bohnenstiehl and her husband Paul, and Christina Underhill McKenzie and her husband Nash. Laura was predeceased in death by her husband Paul Willenbring, her brother John Vonderahe, her sister Erma Thomason, and her father and mother Ben and Frieda Vonderahe.
Laura had a vivacious spirit and was an active member of the Saint Joseph Catholic Church. She so enjoyed gardening, her flowers, and dancing. Friends would often seek out Laura's advice on tending to their roses and flower gardens and she seemed to have a way with making things grow. She will be missed by many.
