In memory of
Laura Beth Somerlot
Laura Beth Somerlot passed away on July 6, 2018. She was born in Normal, IL on June 19, 1973.
Laura was a devoted and loving mother and wife who dedicated herself to bringing good and joy to the world. Through her thoughtful, self-sacrificing and nurturing nature, Laura served at church, through missions and worked countless hours as a volunteer for many organizations. Laura was an accomplished business professional working in the finance section for Fermi Lab in Batavia, IL and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Benedictine University in 2004. Laura's love of crafts is proudly displayed by those around her in the form of scarfs, hats and an uncountable assortment of wearables. Wherever Laura went, so did a ball of yarn and a crochet needle. Laura was a quiet and introverted person, but always found a way of bringing a smile to those around her. Although Laura will be missed, the mark that she left on the world through her love and compassion will never fade.
Laura is survived by her husband, Michael; children; Annelise, Elizabeth and Daniel; mother, Rae Barton; brother, Michael Barton.
She was preceded in death by her father, John Barton, and brother, Matthew Barton.
Memorials may be directed to the family.
Visitation will be held on Thursday, July 12, 2018 from 10 AM until time of service 12 PM at The Healy Chapel, 370 Division Drive, Sugar Grove, IL 60554. A private family burial to follow at Sugar Grove Cemetery.
