Nommensen, Laurie Clare,

Called Home unexpectedly on July 5th, 2022, at the age of 62.  Beloved wife of Dave for 40 years.  Proud mom of Shaun (Annie), Brett (Megan), and Linsey (Eric) Sexton.  Loving grandma of Kaelyn, Blake, Jensen, Frankie, and one yet to be born.  Dear daughter of Edna and the late Russell Jeske.  Cherished sister of the late Ronald (Cathy), Mark (Cindy), and the late James.  Also survived by other relatives and many friends.

Laurie was a lifelong member at St. Jacobi Ev. Lutheran Church.  She loved spending time with her family, and was her grandkid’s biggest fan at many sporting events.  Laurie had many dear friends, especially those in the Investment Club and the Girl’s Club that has met every month since 1977.

    She will surely be missed. She became such a good friend (even though she was my supervisor) for 12 years. We had some good laughs at work. She always talked about her grandkids and was so happy to becoming a grandma again. I will think of her often

    Condolences to the family! Laurie was my manager for the last few years and I was just in her office laughing and talking about life the Friday before she passed. This is heartbreaking as someone that knew her, but I will never forget the great times we shared. She loved her family and was one of the coolest people you could ever meet. Thank you for the great times and I will always remember you!

    We/I’ve known Laurie from time she was a little 9 yr girl in wedding of her big brother Ron and my ‘big’ sister Cathy, to seeing her graduate from high school, to come to work with her mom in same building with her dad, her brothers and me, then meeting Dave who came to work there too, to her beautiful wedding to Dave (on day before our wedding anniversary), to watching her become a mom, then grandma. She was always sweet Laurie – family, coworker, friend and will be missed and remembered with love.

    My sympathy to Laurie’s family, and her many friends and coworkers. Laurie was known to be a wonderful mom & grandma, and very faithful to her friendships While it feels way too soon for her to be leaving this world, may God’s promises carry you now and in the future as you miss her.

    I’m so very saddened by hearing this news of her passing. My deepest condolences to her family. Had the pleasure of calling her my boss but also my Friend, for 15yrs. We laughed so many times that we had tears. I and so many others will miss her terribly. She was a real JOY and I always knew I could count on her for help when I needed it

    My sympathy to her Family and Friends. I will always remember Laurie as a dear friend. She shared many a story about her family and listened to mine and others as well. I will remember the laughs we shared they will surely be missed. She was my supervisor but so much more. It is a great loss to us all. I thank her for the 18 years we shared as co-workers and friends! She will be missed.

    Laurie was my manager when I worked at what was Lakeshore now Aurora clinic. She was probably the best manager I have ever worked under. I am so saddened by her passing. She was respected and loved by many.
    My sincerest sympathies to her family and friends.

    When I heard that God had called Laurie home, my heart missed a few beats…and then I reflected on what an amazing person Laurie was to her friends, family – work and personal, as well as mentor to so many (of which there are any number of tributes to her legacy as a supervisor above)! From the bottom of our hearts, Patrick Pope and I would like to extend our deepest condolences to Laurie’s family and friends. I, too, worked with Laurie for well over a decade. She was always a ‘bright spot’ amid challenges, and never came to work without that irrepressible smile!

    Laurie, you will be missed dearly…but, now when I look up at the warmth and beauty of the Sun, I’ll see your smile, hear your laughter and know that you are sending a wink in my direction!

    My sympathy to Laurie’s family and friends. I worked with Laurie for years. She had a friendly smile. From our conversations, I know she had a family she loved and a family that loved her. She will be missed. I’m sorry for your loss.

    To the family and friends of Laurie, i am a co-worker of over twenty years….. our encounters were brief and few but very meaningful in that Laurie always made time for me… She was always willing to help and always willing to squeeze me into her meeting agenda to get the word out for rehab services… i will not forget her friendly face, warm smile, and laughter that put me always at ease….
