Sunday's Obituary - Laura Cayemberg nee Laurent

Green Bay Press Gazette,
20JAN1997, pg B-5
I shared the story of my husband's paternal grandparents' deaths before. It's touching and heart-breaking at the same time. I never shared their obituaries because I never had them. I got them during my Christmas visit to Wisconsin and decided it was time to share them.

Laura passed first on January 18th. Patrick passed on January 21st. Just long enough to make sure that Laura was taken care of. The story that I shared can be read here. Patrick's obituary will follow Laura's next week.

"Mrs. Patrick (Laura) Cayemberg

Mrs. Patrick (Laura) Cayemberg, 89, formerly of 2023 University Ave., died Saturday evening, Jan. 18, 1997 at a local adult care facility. Born in the Town of Luxembourg, she is the daughter of the late Victor and Mary (Dart) Laurent. She married Patrick H. Cayemberg on Nov. 15, 1928 at St. Martin's Church in Tonet. The couple farmed in Thiry Daems until 1939 when they moved to Green Bay. As a couple they are well remembered for selling pumpkins and Christmas trees for over 30 years from their home on University Avenue (next to the former Mona Lisa Restaurante). Laura was a member of SS. Peter and Paul Parish. She enjoyed chrocheting (sic), knitting, baking chocolate chip cookies for everyone and times spent with her grandchildren.
