Laurel Ann (Raap) Livingston, of Grasston, MN; passed away peacefully in her home on Saturday, May 18, 2019 while surrounded by her family. She was 73 years old.
Laurel was raised on the family farm near Tolley, ND and was active in the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran church where she was baptized (1946), confirmed (1960) and married (1968). After graduating from high school (1964), she pursued two bachelor’s degrees which she earned after only three years of study (1968). Thereafter, she admirably began a career of teaching special education students which would span over the next 38 years.
Laurel loved music, growing flowers, traveling, cooking, her pets, her home, and most importantly her church where she graciously served many years as the choir director.
Laurel is preceded in death by her parents, Lloyd and Leona (Weise) Raap; and her brother Charles Raap.
Laurel will be sorely missed by her husband, Gary; her sons Jonathon and Jereme (Jarissa); her brother Donald (Kathy) Raap; her sister Judy (Harvey) Popinga; father and mother-in-law Clarke and LaVera (Munch) Livingston; brother-in-law Allan Livingston; and many other relatives and friends. She earned respect, admiration and love from many, many people.
