Laura was born on September 10, 1942 in Butler, Missouri, the daughter of Claude D. Lawson and Edna Belle Lafarge.

She married the love of her life, Ray Miner on June 10, 1960. It was then that she became a loving wife and mother. The two of them made their home in Hume, and have lived there for most of their lives. She worked at the Hume school, cleaned houses, worked at nursing homes, and helped her husband on the farm.

Laura was truly one of a kind. Her giving and loving heart made her who she was, but she was not afraid to tell you what she was thinking! She enjoyed spending time with her family and watching everyone grow up, especially her grandchildren. Laura truly was a giver in all aspects of her life. She enjoyed planting flowers and decorating for every holiday. To know her was to love her, and she made a huge impact of everyone she was around.

She is preceded in death by her daughter Brenda Bradley, and her mother and father.

Survivors include her husband of 61 years Ray Miner, their five children, thirteen grandchildren, twenty-seven great-grandchildren, and three great-great-grandchildren.
