Prior to retirement in 2013, she worked for Maplewood Nursing Home and Vernon Green Nursing Home as an LNA. She also worked for Vermont Circuits for a number of years.
Laurel exchanged vows on January 15, 2005 with the love of her life Edward E. “Ted” Robinson at the West Brattleboro Baptist Church where they were members. They loved traveling to the White Mountains where they would enjoy the scenery and watch wildlife. They also loved visiting the ocean and traveled to Florida together. She leaves behind Ted and their two beloved cats.
She loved watching the New England Patriots, camping, sitting by the fire, tending to her gardens, and spending time with family including her three month old grandson. She loved to sing and would often spontaneously call out a tune whenever a song entered her heart. She had a boisterous and infectious laugh that would light up even the darkest of rooms.
Laurel is survived by three children: Everett Kendrick and partner Abbi, of Athol, MA; Jeremy Kendrick and wife Karen, of Winchester, NH; and Sarah Reed and husband William of Amherst, NH. She also leaves behind a grandson, Alexander Reed of Amherst, NH, along with many cousins, nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
