Laurie Lamphere, 58

Laurie Lamphere went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Sept. 12, 2012.

 She was born Dec.16, 1953 to Richard and Ann Lawrence in Waterbury, Conn.

 Laurie was the eldest of four siblings.  

When she was 11, her parents packed up the family of six and moved cross-country to San Jose, Calif.

 It was there that Laurie met her future husband, John, during their high school years.

 After dating in college, they were engaged and then married on Nov. 25, 1972.  

Over the next 10 years, three children were born into their new family.  In 1983, they moved their family of five onto their property in Priest River, Idaho, where they welcomed their fourth child and on which Laurie had still resided with her husband John.

 Laurie worked in the admitting department of Newport Hospital for the last 12 years.  

She enjoyed doing ceramics, working in her yard, and being outdoors in general, but the most important thing to her was always her faith and relationships - Laurie loved God and she loved her family.

  Laurie was proceeded in death by her parents, her sister Lindi, and her brother Ricky.

 She was survived by her husband John, sister Colleen, daughters Michelle, Katrina, Jennifer, and her son Bryan, and eight grandkids.

  Funeral services will be held on Sept. 20 at 11 a.m. at the Church of Faith 36245 Hwy 41, Oldtown, Idaho, followed by the burial at Evergreen Cemetery in Priest River.  

In celebration of her life there will be a luncheon at the church following the burial.

Sherman-Knapp Funeral Home in Priest River is in charge of arrangements.  

Family and friends are invited to sign the online guest book at sherman-knapp.com
