Laura Ellen Davis (Laurie), loving partner to James Young, mother to Andrew Reitberger, and sister to Pamela Erby (Terry), Charles Reitberger, Jr (Carol), Carol Hunt, and Dena Butler (William), and aunt to many nephews and nieces, peacefully passed February 5, 2021.
Born in California, on January 19, 1962, Laurie was raised in Hutchinson, Kansas. Laurie moved to Pearsall, Texas where she met her many lifelong friends. She worked on a ranch doing what she loved, taking care of all the animals, her people and her vegetable garden.
Laurie moved to Mobile, Alabama to be closer to her family. She spent her remaining years taking care of family and friends. Laurie had a huge heart, a wicked sense of humor, and a helpful soul. Along with family and friends, she loved animals (anyone’s animals) and older people. Many times, she would go shopping and return hours later because she would stop to help someone do their shopping, load their car or most times just take the time to talk to them.
She was a special person and will be greatly missed.
Laurie was preceded in death by her mother, Mary Louise Reitberger, father, Charles Andrew Reitberger Sr., and nephew, Aaron Schneider.
Services will be held Saturday, March 20, 2021 beginning at 12:00 p.m. at the Cedar Grove Community Center, 7216 Melrose Drive, St. Martin, Mississippi 39532.
