Laurie was born Oct. 11, 1954 to Ed and Jean (Mangels) Danielson.

Laurie is survived by sons, Michael (Anita), Nicholas (Ashley), and Christopher; 14 grandchildren; brother, Jim, and sister, Kathy. She is also survived by step-children Jenny, Bobby, and Tegan whom she loved and raised.

She was preceded in death by her parents and infant daughter, Kristin.
