Laura Ellen Slayton-Kuperus passed at the age of 66 at her home in Paynesville, MN. She was born in San Jose, CA, and moved to Belgrade MN in the early 1980s, and over the course of time made it to Paynesville, where she has resided for the past 20 years. Laura worked as a farmhand for Jennie-O for almost 25 years.
Laura had a laugh that could fill a room, she loved music and making up songs for just about anything. Laura had a heart full of love, kindness, and compassion for all, but especially for those who didn’t necessarily blend in within the community. Laura is preceded in death by her father Gene, mother Marilyn and sister Nancy.
She is survived by her husband Dale Kuperus (married Sept 2014), children Stephanie (Liz) Russell, Carly (Mike) Brockner, Daniel Samuelson, and Matthew (Laurie) Samuelson, grandchildren: Blake Ryan, and Lillian May, sister Diane Torres and Brother Matthew Slayton, step-children Jeremy, Brittany, Jackie, Harely, as well as numerous grandchildren.
Celebration of life services will be at The Rose Center in Paynesville on Thursday, February 6th, from 4-8 pm with a formal presentation beginning at 6 pm.
