Laura was a loving wife, mother, daughter, sister and teacher. She was born in Rensselaer and graduated from Ball State University where she was a member of the Pi Beta Phi Sorority. She received a Masters of Education from NOVA Southeastern University.
Laura was a school teacher and recently taught fourth grade at Jerry Thomas Elementary school in Jupiter, Fla. She loved the Florida beaches and the Colorado mountains, but most of all she loved spending time with her family.
She will be missed by Gary, her loving husband of 30 years; her son, Josh (wife Abby); daughter, Allie; and her beautiful grandson, Jackson. She will be dearly missed by her parents, Robert and Gloria Soderstrom; her brother, Tod (wife Linnea); and sister, Gayle (husband Martin); and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.
Laura was an inspiration to everyone who knew her. She fought a long and courageous battle with breast cancer. Her long battle was more endurable because of the support of her loving colleagues at Jerry Thomas Elementary.
The family would like to thank all the members of the medical staff involved in her care.
In lieu of flowers the family requests contributions to be made in Laura's name to either Sloan Kettering in NYC at MSKCC.org or Martin Memorial Cancer Center, Stuart, Fla.
Arrangements are being handled by All County Funeral Home and Crematory, 1107 Lake Avenue, Lake Worth, FL 33460. Visitation will be held Saturday, May 11, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Del Lago Chapel.
