The daughter of the late Kenneth and Edith Baker, she resided in Attleboro Falls for most of her life and was a 1949 graduate of North Attleboro High School where she was a cheerleader, composer of the class song, and voted cutest girl.
Laura continued her education at what is now Bryant University where she was a sorority member. She loved music, dancing, playing her piano, keyboard, ukulele, and harmonica. Laura was self-taught in playing the piano and shared her love of music with her many grandchildren. She also loved spending hours putting together jigsaw puzzles and playing board games with her family.
Laura always enjoyed a good conversation and a hot cup of tea with visitors at her home, and she also loved going out for coffee or lunch with her family and many friends.
Laura spent most of her life as a wonderful homemaker and the loving mother of five. She was also a PTA member, cub scouts den mother, youth sports mom, Red Sox and Patriots fan, secretary of the Attleboro Falls Community Association, and a volunteer driver and secretary for the Lincoln Circle for the Blind.
Laura also spent some years working for Donley Manufacturing, Fuller Box, Madonna Manor, and Integrated Services, where for many years she shared her love and compassion by caring for disabled adults. She was a lifelong member of Central Congregational Church.
Laura is survived by her son Brett Cambridge and his wife Dianna; son Jeff Cambridge and his wife Jill; daughter Jill Harris and her husband Howard; daughter Julie Theroux and her husband Donald; and her big sister Mary Stout and husband David.
