Born in Chelsea, Laurie grew up in Randolph and graduated from Randolph High School. She went on to earn her Associates Degree in Nursing from Laboure College, class of 1983. Laurie's first job was at a nursing home in Randolph. She was an old soul and had immense adoration and respect for the knowledge and experience that her elders brought to her life.. Once she became a Registered Nurse Laurie was a neonatal and pediatric intensive care nurse for 34 years at St. Margaret's Hospital, St. Elizabeth's Hospital, South Shore Hospital and most recently Boston Medical Center. She was an expert at placing central lines in the tiny veins of the babies she cared for.
Laurie loved the ocean and going to the beach down in Cape Cod with her children, brothers and sister. and her nieces Melanie, Amanda and Megan and nephews Dominic, Michael and Jake. She would sunbathe May-October and loved swimming in the ocean, smelling the salt and feeling the kiss of the sun's rays more than most things. Laurie loved to read mysteries and watch criminal investigative television shows like Criminal Minds and Law & Order. Some of her favorite things were scrapbooking, country music, seltzer water, popsicles, coffee, tea and spicy food. We know she is enjoying a cup of tea with her mother in the great beyond.
