Obituary


Laurel Kathleen Dizard

Laurie was unexpectedly called away to be with God on February 3, 2011 at age 52.
She was a mother to every child who walked in her door and a friend to everyone she encountered. Laurie was born February 24, 1958 to John and Sharon Beukers, who preceded her in death. She graduated from Lynnwood High School in 1976 and in 1978 married her high school sweetheart, Dave Dizard.
She leaves behind her loving husband; her two children, Jeff Dizard and Diana Austin (Jeremiah); and two grandchildren Hannah (6) and Mason (5).
Laurie dedicated herself to raising her children, and was proud to support them in pursuing their hopes and dreams. She lived to see Jeff perform live comedy and Diana and Jeremiah play music in various bands. Her greatest joy in her final years was spoiling and spending time with her grandchildren, whom she loved dearly. Laurie loved unconditionally, and her home became a refuge to many kids who needed a place to belong.
Laurie's memorial service will be held at 2 p.m., Friday February 11, 2011, at Grace Community Chapel in Mukilteo, followed by a reception at the Alderwood Manor Youth Club.
