Honeoye: June 15, 2014 at age 74. Predeceased by her sister Virginia Connors. Survived by her daughter Teresa (Aran) Heaney of Belfast, NY. Grandchildren; Aidan, Owen, and Finn Heaney. Nephews; Mike (Juanne) Connors of WA, David (Meretta) Connors and Mark Connors all of Honeoye. Several cousins and faithful friend & neighbor Pat Swingle.

Laura was born on January 22, 1940 in Canandaigua to parents Floyd and Dorothea (Jerome) Kingsley. Laura was predeceased by her father in 1945. Dorothea went on to marry Claude Dragt, who became a loving step father to Laura and provided her with a much loved sister, Virginia (Dragt) Connors. Laura graduated in 1958 from Honeoye Central School and held a variety of jobs in the Rochester area until 1970, when daughter Teresa was born. In 1974, Laura moved back home to Honeoye. She is retired from the 3M company where she was employed in both the Honeoye and Rochester plants. After her retirement from 3M, she was employed at Honeoye Central School as a bus driver until illness forced her to retire in 2008. Outside of work, Laura enjoyed working in her yard, knitting and crocheting and spending time with family. Some of the happiest days in her life, were the past 11 years since she became a grandmother. "Granny Laura," as she fondly became known, loved and doted on her grandchildren above all else and was happy any time she could be with them for special events, holidays, travel and everyday occasions. Her illness brought her to live in Belfast with her daughter and son-in-law, Teresa and Aran, along with the grandkids, and she lived out her days surrounded by their love and care.
