I am saddened to learn of Laura’s passing. I worked under Laura for several years in the late 70’s at the Cincinnati Historical Society, and, for years after, a foursome would get together for lunch every so often and catch with one another’s lives. Laura always had interesting tales to relate, and I was very happy for her when she became a deacon in her church. She was truly professional in her career. I will miss her.
