Laurie Jeannette Farris Cahill
March 1, 1960 – November 30, 2022
Laurie went to be with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on November 30,
2022. Laurie is survived by her children; Ryan, Amanda, and Donnie, her
siblings; Dewey, Debby, Kevin, Allison, and Julie, four grandchildren, and
too many others to name in this huge family. Laurie was a graduate from
the very first class at Pinellas Park High School in 1978. She loved to hang
out with friends at the beautiful Clearwater Beach. Laurie loved everything
70’s, the greatest decade for music and fashion. She loved feathered hair
and a great tube of lipstick. I’m sure everyone remembers her love for
denim clothing. Denim skirts and denim jackets never went out of style for
Laurie’s true love was music. It was her outlet, and it made her happy and
free. She enjoyed going to concerts and wearing the latest concert T-shirts.
This was when she was the happiest. Laurie played vinyl records for
everyone back in the day. If you weren’t a fan of Fleetwood Mac, Peter
Frampton, Styx, and Stevie Nicks, Laurie would make sure you became
one! Peter Frampton Comes Alive was kept alive by Laurie.
The cats. Don’t forget her love for cats. Laurie had a special bond with all
cats. Her favorites were Patches, Sammie, and Kitty the kitten, just to name
a few. Aunt Jo, the family Chaplain, was able to bring words of comfort to
Laurie and the rest of the family while Laurie was in Hospice care. Aunt Jo
made sure Laurie was in touch with Jesus Christ. Laurie lit up like an
excited teenager when it was time for her to have her first sleepover at
Hospice. She loved her “Hospice slumber parties”. Aunt Jo and Debby
were able to attend the slumber parties with her. Although Laurie was the
first one to fall asleep at her own slumber parties. Everyone knows that
Laurie was fashionably late to everything, but she was not late meeting
Jesus on His time. Laurie was blessed that her children and all her siblings
were able to see her before she went to the Lord.
The family is thankful for Hospice and the Loving care that they provided
for Laurie. They are also thankful for the endless supply of Hospice cookies
A Memorial Service will be announced at a later date.
