Laura Mae Nash

| May 19, 2021 12:00 AM

A celebration of Laura Mae Nash’s life will be held at the Alberton Community Church at 1 p.m. Saturday, May 22.

Laura was born to Glenna and Charles Bridwell on Aug. 22, 1946, in Superior, Nebraska.

She joined her older sister Muriel Mead (Alberton) and was followed by her sister Sherry Shortell (Columbia Falls), her brother Raymon Bridwell (Columbia Falls), her sister Glenda Garrison (Missoula), and her half-sister Gwen Pederson (Missoula).

Laura went to high school in Alberton and married Herbert

Hal Nash from Nine Mile Dec. 5, 1964. They had two children, Dean and Debra, and two grandchildren, LeAnna and Tyler. Laura was a kind and funny person.

She had a wonderful sense of humor and a soft spot for senior citizens, children, and animals (especially cats). Laura was an avid reader and loved family gatherings, family camping, playing golf, long walks, long drives, and meeting new people.

Laura loved the beauty and freedom that eagles represented when flying high above the earth. Laura worked in the banking industry from the mid-70s to the early 2000s.

She also worked as a special reading helper/instructor in the Coeur d’Alene School District.

Proceeding Laura in death were her daughter Debra, her parents, her sister Sherry, and her brother Ray.

Laura left us on April 12, 2021, after a brief bout with leukemia. She lived a good, full, and happy life.

She loved greatly and generously and was equally loved in return. She will truly be missed.
