Laurie was employed by the Hagge family for 33 years; where they became an important part of her life and family. For the past 20 years she loved to drive school bus for the Lakeland Bus Service. She was proud to drive school bus and loved the kids and the smile she put on their faces. She drove for many children and their children in the future. Laurie’s children and grandchildren will always have a special place in her heart. She enjoyed all the time she got to spend with them. She was the best mom and nana in the world.
