Laura Lenhard Obituary

Laura Ann (Hooker) Lenhard, age 59, of Shelton, CT passed away peacefully on October 7, 2023 in her home surrounded by her loving family. Laura was born in Bridgeport, CT to Donald and Alice Louise Taylor-Hooker. Laura was a graduate of Stratford High School. She followed her passion after multiple corporate careers and opened her own business, Talisman & Cauldron, in 2007. She continues to inspire her family to live freely and without regrets. Laura was a strong force, with the most gentle and caring soul. She was the family matriarch and heart of the home. She would never pass up an opportunity to read, garden, love all her animals dearly, and enjoy conversation with anyone she encountered. As a devoted mother, watching her children grow into the young adults they are was the best and most rewarding part of her life. Laura always said she would want her loved ones to celebrate her life, not mourn her passing. 

She is survived by her husband Roy Lenhard II; four children, Derek Dufour, Devin Dufour and her husband Alex Nankervis, Daisy Dufour and Roy Lenhard III; her siblings D.J. Hooker and his wife Heather, Michael DeBiase, Donna Collins and her husband Mark, Lisa Ridgeway and her husband Rob, Michael Thomas Hooker-Warner Sr. and his wife Kimberly Richards-Warner; and nephews Branndon Warner and Christopher Warner. She was predeceased by her nephew Michael Thomas Warner Jr.

A graveside service will be held at Trumbull Burial Grounds at a later date.
