Lura embraced life with gusto whether it was family campouts, riding a roller coaster, parasailing behind a speedboat or looking for the next big poker game. She was an inspiration to all her family. Our sorrow comes from knowing we can no longer be part of her life and our joy comes from knowing she will always be part of ours. She wished no services to be held but if we insisted a party would be OK. So please join us in celebrating Lura's life on Sunday, March 24th, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the clubhouse of the Highlands Mobile Home Park at 7467 Mission Gorge Road in Santee.
