Laura Brubaker

August 28, 1918 - October 29, 2017

Laura Elizabeth Brubaker passed away at the age of 99 on October 29, 2017, at Sunrise Hill Care Center in Traer. Her early years were spent in Nashua, Cedar Rapids and Marion, where she was valedictorian of her graduating class. She met her husband, Russell, while helping her uncle manage the store in Dinsdale. Following their marriage, the city girl quickly acclimated to the country life and became an integral partner in the operation of the family farm for 53 years. In addition to farming demands, Laura was devoted to her children, Vivian, Rebecca, and Randy. She also enjoyed reading, fishing trips to northern Minnesota, Bible studies and the Amity Church. Following the death of her husband, Laura moved to the Traer community. While continuing her love of reading and Bible study, she also became a volunteer for Cedar Valley Hospice.

In lieu of flowers, please direct memorials to the Traer Memorial Library.
