Laura Ruth Hage Schemmer

Jan. 18, 1970-Apr. 30, 2021

"I Shall Lift You Up"

Our daughter dedicated her life to helping others overcome difficulties. Teaching was a perfect fit for her. For example, when the parent of one of Laura's fourth graders became unable to transport her daughter to school during the fourth quarter, Laura transported the student daily so the student would not have to change schools at mid-term.

Laura always met you with a smile and grace. She would inspire you to the next platform. Over 400 friends met at the Crowne Plaza in November to honor and remember her 51 years.

We miss you, kid!
