Dolores "Laurie" Lieberum passed away peacefully in her sleep on Thursday, January 20, 2022. She was born on October 27, 1931, in Mount Kisco, N.Y., the daughter of John and Ann Shepard. She was preceded in death by both parents and her brother, Jack.
She is survived by her three children, Al Lieberum (Beth) of Wichita, Kansas, Larry Lieberum (Terrie) of Gurnee, Illinois, and Lynn Smith (Jeff) of Boones Mill, Virginia; six grandchildren, Jenn Love, Andy, Adam and Kyle Lieberum, Krista Kotoun and Marek Smith; five great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
Laurie chose to donate her body to science, therefore there will be no service. The family would like to express their gratitude to Friendship South Rehab Center for the wonderful kindness they showed our mother during the last months of her life. Mom said they lived up to their name, Friendship, and she felt grateful that everyone she had contact with was a friend.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Friendship South Rehab Center or the American Cancer Society in our mother's name. Friendship South Rehab Center, 5647 Starkey Road, Roanoke, VA 24018, https://www.friendship.us/give
