Laurie, born November 29, 1957, Cherokee, Iowa, was the daughter of James Dean and Donna Louise (Buddenhagen) Hoefling. Laurie graduated from Marcus Community High School in 1976, and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in special education from The University of Northern Iowa in 1980. Her talents and patience were put to good use while teaching elementary special education in Grinnell, Iowa for the next eight years. In 1988, Laurie began a thirty-five-year career at the Diocese of Davenport.  She thoroughly enjoyed her job and, above all, loved helping people. Laurie was and will forever be the bright spot in everyone’s day with her contagious smile and kind words.

 

If Laurie knew you, she knew your family and their interests. People above things was her motto, her mantra, and her lifestyle.  She may not have any direct descendants, but she left a legacy far more grand than many hope for.

 

Olivia, Gianni and Elijah King knew Laurie as a second mother; she was integral in their faith development, education and upbringing. Laurie passionately followed their interests and actively supported their athletics, volunteerism, career paths and lives. 

 

While Laurie loved and appreciated the beauty of flowers, please honor her wishes; rather than send flowers at this time, please make a donation to charities that, like Laurie, serve people. Some of her preferred charities include Riverbend Food Bank or your local food bank, Humility of Mary Housing, Diocesan Catholic Charities or McAnthony Window at St Anthony's Church in Davenport. Perhaps purchase personal care items or paper products for people in need, or donate to your local school supply drive or backpacks for kids.
