Homeschooling Mother Dies Suddenly

While Teaching Her Children A Mother Suddenly Collapses . . .

First of all, I am writing to ask for prayers for Brian and Laurie. Laurie died suddenly on Thursday morning around 11: 00 AM. It seems that she had a 95% blockage in a coronary artery. Without advance warning or signs, she suddenly collapsed while homeschooling her children. Her dear husband was out of town for work and had to come in quickly to this sad tragedy. Laurie was 31, survived by Brian, her husband, and children Josh (6), Joanie (5), Ashley (3) and Francesca (10 months). All of them need our prayers.

She was especially devoted to the Chaplet of Divine Mercy; if you would be willing to pray this for her and her family, this would be most appreciated.

A Solemn High Requiem Funeral Mass (traditional rite) will be at 11:00 AM on Thursday.

Any comments will be forwarded to the family.

what a tragedy. I will certainly be praying for the husband and children. I will also remember them in my rosary intentions this week.

How sad! May she rest in peace and may God comfort her grieving family.

The Green family in Ohio is praying for you too! I was on the same CALL team as John Heithaus, and he sent us word. May God comfort the family at this time. Many homeschoolers in Dayton will be praying for you as well.

This is so sad. I will pray for her and for her family. Her devotion to the Mercy of God has brought many graces to her soul!
