Laura maintained her membership as a Rebekah in the Odd Fellows Lodge for many years. Over 12 years ago, she moved to a Belmont retirement complex. Earlier this year, Laura continued in her complex with private duty care, until the past few months when she entered a private adult care home in Pueblo and was placed under the care of Sangre de Cristo Hospice. Known for her detailed and clear memory of Pueblo's history, Laura was interviewed both by the Pueblo Chieftain and other authors interested in Pueblo and its historical buildings and happenings. She verbalized that she felt blessed to have grown up in an era that valued hard work and family commitment. In the century I've lived in, there's been lots of good and lots of bad - wars and more wars, lots of depression. But we survived and grew stronger. Laura loved her country, and enjoyed celebrating her birthday on the same day as her country's birthday of independence. She considered voting a patriotic privilege and served as an election judge for several years. She was preceded in death by her parents, Christian and Olga Horlbog; uncle, Henry Horlbog; and sister, Eleanor (Donald) Hoover. Surviving are cousins, Leonard and Shirley Wecks of Manitou Springs; along with their married children, Dan and Laurie.
