Laura R Lauri Welborn

Laura R. “Lauri” Welborn, age 52, passed away on Sunday, November 13, 2022, at Agrace Hospice in Fitchburg after a short, vigorous battle with cancer. Lauri was born in Dodgeville on November 3, 1970, to Patricia Welborn and Dennis Farrey. She lived her entire life in southwestern Wisconsin. Lauri worked at Hardee’s, Taco Bell, and Walmart. When she wasn’t working, Lauri enjoyed reading ghost stories, doing word searches, going on road trips, and playing Farmville or coloring on her iPad. Above all else, Lauri’s world was her children and grandchild.

She was preceded in death by her mom, Patricia; her grandma, Loretta; and her special friend, Sam Batchelor.

She is survived by her two children: Cody and Trista (Blake Horner) Welborn, both of Linden; her granddaughter, Samantha; her sister, Candy Welborn of Edmund; her nephew, Cade; and many other family members and friends.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, November 19, 2022, at the Lulloff-Peterson-Houck Funeral Home in Dodgeville with Pastor Jim Droste officiating. Friends may call at the funeral home after 10:00 AM. A luncheon at Dodgeville United Methodist Church will follow the funeral service. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the family would be greatly appreciated.
