Laurel (Detwiller) Wayne passed away on June 16, 2017 in Fargo at the Sanford Palliative Care facility from complications due to Lupus. She passed away with her family around her.
Laurie was born November 17, 1952 in San Francisco, CA and returned to Minnesota with her parents upon her father’s discharge from the army. She lived in Moorhead with her last childhood years on Wall Street with their large garden and horses. Laurie graduated from St. Francis de Sales Catholic grade school and transferred to Moorhead High School where she graduated in 1970. She continued her education at the Moorhead Technical College receiving a diploma from the Secretarial program.
Laurie was married to Richard Wayne in 1973 and was later blessed with two children, Stacy (Wayne) Jordet and Eric Wayne. During her life the kids were always foremost on her mind but she did find time and enjoy traveling having been to all fifty States and a number of foreign countries. When home, she liked to tend to her flowering plants and go on horse riding trips with her sisters, especially during the fall color season. She seldom missed on opportunity to gather with the extended family during holidays or for no reason at all.
