Remembering Our Wife, Our Mother and Our Friend, Laurie

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Laurie Eliasen, 64, born on August 30, 1949 and passed away on September 3, 2013. We will remember her forever.

Mom had the largest heart of any person we could have ever known. You needed a helping hand, you called Laurie. You needed a strong shoulder, you called Laurie. She was a Mother to many, blood and blessed, wife to her sweetheart, George for over 43yrs and a friend to many, many more. 

Please leave a note, sharing just how much she touched your life, in every special way she could. Whether it was playing her silly Facebook games chatting with anyone from around the world to helping you create your life memories.   Share your stories.

The one who always had chocolate for us when we had crappy calls even though it wasn't a favorite of yours. Your one of the most amazing people I know. Your strength and love know no end. I wish everyone had a chance to know you. Love you forever Mama Lo!"

"There are so many things I am going to miss about you Laurie. I just can't believe your gone. You pop up in my head all the time. Just yesterday I posted a pic of Bren's first day of school and immediatly thought of you and all your sweet comments when I posted pics and how much I am going to miss that. You were the most thoughtful caring person and I am so lucky to have been your friend."

"Words cannot describe the love and caring that Laurie shared with every life she touched.  She was well liked by all and I don't think there is a single person who ever had a bad thing to say about her.  She was honest, direct and protective of all she cares about.  I feel greatly honored that she came into my life and shared so much wisdom with me, although the time was way to brief. </3"

Even when we didn't see eye to eye, you knew I loved you."
