Sad news to report


Recommended Posts

I received a call early Thursday morning from Laurence's husband, David, informing me that Laurence had passed away peacefully in her sleep overnight Wednesday/Thursday morning. She had been having some medical problems over the last couple of years. She was 55.

As most of you are aware, her father was Raymond Loewy, lead designer of the Studebaker Avanti and the man often credited as being the "Father of Industrial Design."

There will be a visitation Monday, October 20 at the H.M. Patterson's & Sons Funeral Home, 1157 Old Canton Road NE, Marietta, Ga., 30068

Call the funeral home at 770-977-9485 for visitation times on Monday, which have not yet been set.

A funeral mass will be held at St. Anns Catholic Church, 4905 Roswell Road, Marietta, GA at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 21 .

A reception at the church will follow.

If I get any more information, I'll make sure to pass it on to all of you.

Those that knew Laurence for any length of time will truly miss her and the tireless work she continued for herself and to keep the memory and great designs of her father alive.
