She was the beloved wife of 28 years of Timothy M. Laurion.
Born in Massena, she was the loving daughter of Michael and Elizabeth (Jermano) LaRosa, who reside in Winter Haven, Fla.
Mrs. Laurion was remembered as a very creative person, who enjoyed knitting and sewing, and regularly volunteered her time to local organizations including Danny's Place in Acton. But Mrs. Laurion most loved spending her time focused on her two daughters and their activities. With Danielle Rose, whose passion is dance, she was involved with the Acton School of Ballet and the Commonwealth Ballet Company where she was the head costumer, designing and creating costumes for the various productions. With Kate Marie, whose love is swimming, she volunteered for the Patriot Swim Club, the Acton Town Swim Team and the Girls Varsity Swim Team at Acton-Boxborough Regional High School.
In addition to her husband, daughters and parents, Mrs. Laurion is survived by two brothers, Michael LaRosa of North Syracuse, and Steven LaRosa of St. Albans, Va.; a sister, Ann Vigne of Concord, Mass.; and a loving extended family.
