Of Dexter, MI, Age 62, passed away peacefully and calm on Wednesday, January 13, 2021, at her home in Dexter after several fun-filled days with family and friends. She had struggled with diabetes since age nine and throughout it all she was always a trooper and never complained.
Laura was born April 29, 1958, in Ann Arbor, the daughter of Paul Gene & Betty Mae Denton. She graduated from Dexter High in 1976. She worked at Lyndon Color Labs on Huron River Dr. in Dexter. Laura loved shopping anywhere and everywhere. She loved dancing at Suds Factory, City Limits, Weber’s, and the Jackson Road Logging Company, just to name a few. Laura genuinely enjoyed talking and interacting with whomever she encountered. She was the social butterfly at Dialysis for the past 12 years where she lifted spirits, lit up the room and got everyone chatting- they loved her deeply.
Survivors include her father, Paul G. Denton of Ann Arbor; a son, Kyler Denton-McHardy of Ann Arbor; three siblings, Charlie, Paula, and Tom Denton; one niece, Meg Krull; two nephews, Jeremy Webber and Paul Denton; and her precious little dog, Gizzy. She was preceded in death by her mother, Betty Parmer; stepfathers, Bob McLeod and Bob Parmer; and stepmother, Eleanor Denton.
A private service was held at Oak Grove Cemetery in Chelsea and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be made to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Arrangements were entrusted to Cole Funeral Chapel in Chelsea.
