She was born on Nov. 7, 1934 to Charlie and Anna (Sestak) Lloyd. She graduated from Gonzales High School in 1953; where she was a cheerleader and class favorite. Laura was blessed with her only child, Jane Ann, and later a grandson, Kolby Kifer.
She was a member of the Gonzales Ladies Golf Association where she served as President for two years. Laura was a founding member of the Monday-Thursday Bridge Club, pioneering bridge playing in Gonzales.
In her early years, she liked to deer hunt, fish, golf and ski; but bridge was her true passion.
Later, she went to work at Ladies First where she went to apparel market with Mona Bivins for many years. Later, she helped open and managed Shear Designs Boutique where she loved visiting with and helping customers. Her funniest and favorite memories were of the many road trips with her four sisters traveling from state to state.
She was a faithful and lifelong member of St. James Catholic Church and the St. James Catholic Daughters. Laura also taught C.C.D. in the early 70’s.
