Obituary of Laurel Packer

Laurel N. Packer


Sunrise: September 19th, 1944 — Sunset: March 28th, 2022


Laurel was preceded in death by her husband Floyd Packer. She is survived by her daughter Heather, son Trenton, and granddaughter Kashmir. Laurel’s calling was to bring life into the world as a beloved obstetric nurse. She spent her career sharing her boundless compassion and love with others by assisting in the birthing process. Laurel was loved by many and will be greatly missed.


Laurel was a fierce defender and protector of those she loved. She had a quick smile, laughed easily, and enjoyed her two glasses of wine at dinner, which Jack Bell, Sandra Lopez, Sherrie Choy, and numerous other friends got to share.
