Laura H. Kaplan Obituary
March 17, 1947 - June 14, 2016 Laura passed away peacefully at home after an 18 year on again off again battle with breast cancer. Laura was a devoted daughter to her parents Walter and Anne Shanks. A longtime resident of Cheviot Hills, Laura graduated from Hamilton High School. She loved dogs, shopping at Nordstrom, dining out, and entertainment of all kinds. Laura's infectious personality touched the hearts of everyone she knew. There is no place that Laura went that she did not make a new friend. She will be remembered for her vibrant personality, kindness and endless generosity. Laura had no children, but was "Auntie Mame" to her beloved Kellen (20) and Michael Christine (17) Ware, the grandchildren of Laura's close friend, Michael Cody, who passed in 1995. Taking on her new extended family, Laura's life was fulfilled in ways she had never imagined, giving her peace and reasons to smile even in the last days of her beautiful life. Laura is survived by her mother Anne and many loving members of her extended family. After a private sea scattering ceremony, we will celebrate Laura's life with family and friends on Sunday, July 3, at 3 p.m. at the home of Marnie and Tom Ware, 10634 Esther Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90064.
