Laura Mary Davies, born Laura Mary Briars on March 19, 1925, has left behind a legacy of kindness and happiness that will forever be remembered. Her passing on October 24, 2023, in Denver, Colorado marked the end of a life lived with an unparalleled zest for living. Laura was born in Sussex, United Kingdom, and it was there that she began her journey towards becoming the remarkable person we all knew and loved.
Laura's career as an Assistant Dietitian allowed her to combine her passion for helping others with her love for nutrition. She dedicated her life to ensuring the well-being of those around her, always ready with a comforting smile and gentle guidance. Whether it was advising on healthy eating habits or offering words of encouragement, Laura's presence brightened the lives of all those lucky enough to cross her path.
Beyond her professional accomplishments, Laura will be most fondly remembered for her vibrant and effervescent personality. She had an exuberance that could light up any room she entered. Bubbly and chirpy, she possessed an uncanny ability to engage anyone in conversation and effortlessly captivate them with her infectious enthusiasm. Truly someone who could "talk the hind leg off a donkey," Laura charmed everyone she met with her warmth and genuine interest in their lives. She had remarkable British quick whitt.
One could never forget Laura's love for both England and travel. She would often regale friends and family with tales of vacations back to her beloved home country. The memories of these trips sparked joy in her heart, which she generously shared with others through vivid stories and photographs.
In the quiet moments of solitude, Laura found solace in reading Agatha Christie novels. The thrilling mysteries within those pages transported her to another world where she reveled in the intrigue and suspense. But Laura was not one to keep quiet for too long; she also enjoyed engaging in lively conversations on the phone or spending evenings laughing along with the television show, "The Big Bang Theory."
Laura's proudest accomplishments were undoubtedly centered around her family. As a mother, she poured her love and devotion into raising her daughter Kim Kjergaard, giving her the tools needed to navigate life's challenges with strength and grace. Laura's nurturing nature extended beyond her human family as she cared for her cherished herd of dogs with boundless affection.
Laura was preceded in death by her loving husband Bernard Davies and leaves behind a legacy that will forever be etched in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. She was the loving daughter of Maggie and Gerald Briars, who surely must have felt pride knowing their daughter touched so many lives.
As we bid farewell to Laura Mary Davies, let us remember the joy she brought into our lives. Her kind soul and perpetual happiness will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. May she find eternal peace, forever surrounded by love and light.
