Laurina, along with her husband lived, farmed and raised 12 children in the Sherwood area until their retirement. She enjoyed gardening, ceramics and spending time with her children and grandchildren. Laurina loved listening to the Jerry Schnieder show on Saturday morning, along with her many CD's of Daniel O'Donald. She also loved watching the Green Bay Packer Games, especially when her favorite quarterback played, Brett Favre. She loved flowers and her many flower beds showed it. Laurina was a member of Sacred Heart Parish in Sherwood. She was with the Christian Mothers, American Legion Auxiliary, and NFO. Laurina will be remembered for the wonderful cook and baker she was, and for the many, many funeral lunches she prepared and served, especially her oh so great potato salad.
