Laura Ann (VandenBosch) Lee, 68, of Muskegon, passed away Thursday, April 15, 2021, at her home after an extended illness. She was born May 25, 1952, in Muskegon, the daughter of Lawrence and Judith (Payne) VandenBosch.
Laura graduated from Shelby High School and married Jerry D. Lee in March of 1972. Laura worked hard all her life, including at Tempo Tech, Hansen Foods, and The Belly Up Bar. She was proud that later in life she completed her RN degree, and used that credential while working at Oceana County Medical Care Facility.
Laura was an amazing cook and baker. Her generosity extended to her many friends, the fortunate beneficiaries of her meals, homemade cheesecake, and delicious pies. A gifted textile-artist, Laura was skilled at piecing and hand-quilting, and she completed numerous quilts. She was very resourceful and handy, turning discarded items into treasures and accomplishing innovative woodworking and home fix-it projects to make her house a home. Laura loved being outdoors. On most days you could find her gardening or working in her yard.
