Reba Marie McFee Laughter, 88, of Montgomery, Texas passed away peacefully in her sleep Sunday morning May 18, 2014.

She was a 4th generation Houstonian, born in the Heights, graduating from John Reagan High School in 1942. Reba's nickname in high school was "Happy" and she never met a stranger. Her smile lit up every room and her spirit was contagious. She loved music, singing, dancing and babies.

Reba worked for many years at Rice University and the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. She followed her husband, the Colonel, around the world including living in Izmir, Turkey where she was the president of American Wives Club. She was a member of many charitable and civic organizations in Montgomery County. She was the founder of the annual Christmas Cookie Walk in Montgomery and former Montgomery Historical Society member and key contributor. Reba was president of the Montgomery Garden Club. Her civic and charitable contributions are too numerous to list.

She is survived by her husband of 67 years, Col. Ramon M. Laughter USAF Retired, daughter Rebecca Ray; sons Ramon L. Laughter and wife Diane and Randall Laughter and wife Beverly, seven grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.

The family wishes to thank Becky Dahl & numerous caregivers who helped & supported Reba.
