Freer, Jr. Laurie was a 1981 graduate of St. Joseph High School. She was a devoted wife and mother and family was paramount to her. Laurie was happiest being with her children and supporting their passions, whether it was Thomas' regattas and pipe band performances; Andrew's rugby games, their school plays, or Margaret's cheerleading competitions and dance recitals. She was the mama bear to her cubs! In addition to her flair for all things fashion, Laurie had a quick wit and a great sense of humor.

Laurie is survived by the loves of her life, her devoted children; Andrew, Thomas, and Margaret, of Bridgeport.

Freer III (Jennifer) of Meadow Vista, CA and Patrick Freer (Kim) of Chandler, AZ, her three sisters; Frances A. Freer of Bridgeport, Susan O'Neil (John) of Snellville, GA and Beth Frazza (Luke) of Fairfax, VA; her sister-in-law Dr. Rania Baik (Bob) of Brooklyn, CT and twelve nieces and nephews that were proud to call her their aunt. Laurie was beyond blessed to have the companionship of many dear friends as well as her beloved dog, Pearl. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, April 2, 2016 at 9:30 a.m. directly in St. Catherine of Siena Church, 200 Shelton Rd., Trumbull for a Mass of Christian Burial.

Dear Freer and Baik families,
I will continue to think of you all and send you strength and prayers. Laurie was very much part of my growing up years. We laughed quite often. I haven't really seen Laurie since I moved away to Seattle many years ago. I know she will continue to watch over her three children, and now do it with their father. Hugs to all.
