Laura Thiele died on January 26 at the Westhampton Care Center in Westhampton after a long illness. She was 80 years old.

Mrs. Thiele was born on March 11, 1928 in Sag Harbor to John and Josephine Mysliborski. She was a lifelong resident of Sag Harbor. Mrs. Thiele graduated from Pierson High School in 1944. On October 1, 1950, she married Fred W. Thiele, Sr., also of Sag Harbor. She is survived by her two children, Fred Jr., the area state assemblyman, and Laurie Ann Garlock, of Lockport, N.Y.

Mrs. Thiele was devoted to her family and home community of Sag Harbor. She worked at the Bulova Watch Case Factory in Sag Harbor for more than two decades and later as the deli manager at Schiavoni's Market. She was involved in many community activities.

Mrs. Thiele loved to spoil her grandchildren, and they were the focus of her attention in her later years. She was always interested in hearing of their latest exploits. She had four grandchildren, Eric Garlock of Albany, NY; Michael Thiele of Derry, NH; Jeffrey Thiele of Brooklyn, NY; and Josephine Thiele of Sag Harbor, currently a student at Colby College in Waterville, Me.

She often enjoyed playing Bingo at the local Catholic Church with her good friend Helen Labrozzi and, after retiring, liked to travel with her friends, many of whom she had known all her life. She enjoyed the beach, especially Long Beach. She loved music and dancing; Frank Sinatra was always her favorite.

Rooting for her sports teams was a passion for Mrs. Thiele. She was an avid Pittsburgh Pirates and Pittsburgh Steelers fan. She tried to never miss their games when they were on TV, sticking by the Pirates despite 15 consecutive losing seasons. The Steelers current run to the Super Bowl still brought a smile to her face as she fought her recent illness. A Terrible Towel was always at her bedside.

Mrs. Thiele was pre-deceased by her husband Fred, Sr. in 1982. She was also predeceased by her only sister, Alyce.

Visiting was held on Wednesday at Yardley and Pino Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held today, Thursday, January 29, at St. Andrews R.C. Church at 10:30 a.m. Burial will follow at St. Andrews Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be sent to the Sag Harbor Ambulance Corps, PO Box 2725, Sag Harbor, NY 11963.
