Laurie Ann Herman
Laurie Ann Herman, 76, of Port St. Lucie, FL, passed away peacefully at Treasure Coast Hospice on April 4, 2012, after a short illness.
Shortly after her birth in 1936 in Milwaukee, WI, Laurie moved with her family to Holland, MI. At the age of 12, Laurie became involved with the then-new sport of water skiing. She toured with the Tommy Bartlett water skiing shows, and was a performer on the water skiing team at Cypress Gardens. She also skied competitively, and won the Women's North American Overall Championship in 1956.
Laurie was also an artist, and while in Florida, she created and sold needlepoint designs from her home in North Palm Beach.
In the late 1970ís, she returned to Michigan, remarried, and became active in The Daughters Of The King, a worldwide Episcopal Church womanís organization, and eventually served a term as the organizationís president.
Laurie and her husband Ron moved to Port St. Lucie in 2001. Laurie remained active in the Episcopal Church and the Daughters Of The King. Laurieís love of life, her devotion to her family, her art, and her outstanding culinary talents made her a beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother. The light in her eyes and the warmth of her smile, eclipsed only by the love in her heart, will be sorely missed by all who had the privilege to know her.
Laurie is survived by her husband Ron Herman, and son Timothy Feeley, both of Port St. Lucie, daughter Jennifer Lampman (Ron) of Syracuse, NY, grandchildren Cody and Chelsea Lampman, great-granddaughter Keira Lampman, and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her father and mother, Verne and Lorraine Hohl, and brother Verne Hohl, Jr.
Memorial services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, April 12, 2012, at The Episcopal Church of the Nativity at 1151 SW Del Rio Blvd. in Port St. Lucie, Florida.
