Shelia Laughlin Tonganoxie, KS

Shelia Laughlin passed December 19, 2016, a lifelong resident of the Tonganoxie area. Have waited to post ­ so many needed to know person to person. The mother of 5 children and a loving, caring neighbor of many. She always had a gallon of milk, a dozen eggs and a neighborly way as she passed on the way home, as well as pies, cobblers and holiday desserts. There was always a good meal for dinner, fresh vegetables from the garden and home raised chicken and beef from the farm. She always said all we needed from the store were spices and basic staples. She may have passed, but she'll always be with us. Shelia would love for donations to be made to Hope Foundation of Leavenworth.
