I worked with Laurene at FTS in the 1980's. In the summer of 1985 when I was a college student Laurene offered to drive me to and from work each day.

Very sorry to hear the news of Laurene's passing.
A class act and pillar of the Quality Space Management community and a major
reason why Frequency & Time Systems GPS Navstar program was so successeful.
As mentioned by several co-workers. We still use procedures and documents she
developed to this day...

I can still hear her laughter and singing in the halls here at work.

She will be greatly missed.

Paula, Diane and Debbie
I was saddened to learn of Laurene's passing.
I first knew her when I 14 and I babysat for her. She was trying to establish a career and to take care of her daughters in a most difficult time.
She was like a big sister to me and we often talked.
She also was a great and helpful friend to my Mom.
She was a hard worker, generous, gracious and a great sense of wit and common sense!

She will be greatly missed! She is with the angels !

My prayers are with you
