Lauri loved going to auctions, tending to her home and spending time in the kitchen cooking and baking, always trying out a new recipe. Her favorite pastime was riding 4-wheeler, and the muddier it was the better she loved it, and the more family and friends that shared the adventure with her only made it more special.
In keeping with her passion for getting together with loved ones; a celebration of Lauri’s life will be held Saturday afternoon, July 21, 2018 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Anderson Funeral Home in Augusta.
