For fifteen years, Lauryn displayed her entrepreneurial spirit by developing a love for arts and crafts, sewing, hair styling and care. She was a tenth (10th) grade International Baccalaureate student at Jim Hill High School where she participated in the chorus and was a member of the track team.

Everyone will remember the precious moments of Lauryn’s life and passing by embracing one another with com-passion, concern, and love through patience, prayer, and presence from this day forward.
