Laurie graduated from Monticello High School in 1971. On February 12, 1972, she was united in marriage to Sheldon Grossen at the Zwingli United Church of Christ in Monticello. Laurie was a farm wife and also worked as a Pharmacy Technician for over 25 years in Belleville. She was a member of the First United Church of Christ in Belleville, and liked to attend theater shows and Badger Band concerts, along with living in the country. Laurie enjoyed cooking and baking for her family and friends, and was always on the lookout for new Christmas cookie recipes to try. While she wasn't one to travel, Laurie enjoyed watching shows about traveling the world. She loved her feline companions, and always made sure to ask about her children's pets. But most of all, she loved time spent with her grandchildren and family.
