Amazing Property in Lakeville! 5707 Big Tree Rd
At age 82, Laurel passed away peacefully with her family by her side on Sunday, December 27, 2020 at her home in Honeoye. She was born in Rochester, NY to the late John and Libbie Straight. Survived by her beloved husband of 40 years; Harold Grundman, her children; Jeff (Becky) Briggs, Don (Linda) Briggs, Ken (Becky) Briggs, Cindi (Garth) Thomas, Karen Stephens, Nancy Titus, John (Melissa) Miles, her 20 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren, along with several nieces, nephews and friends. She is predeceased by her siblings, John Straight, Robert Straight, Wallace Straight and Louise Straight. Laurel will be greatly missed.
As a mother of seven children, Laurel’s home was always filled with much love and affection. She would spend many of her days at her sewing machine creating beautiful pillows and quilts. She was gifted with both poetry and music, and she’d sing silly songs to her children and grandchildren to make them laugh. Everything in life would remind her of a song. Laurel also loved nature; the trees and the flowers, and most particularly pretty yellow daffodils.

Dougherty Funeral Home, 8624 Main Street, Honeoye, where Laurel’s Memorial Service will take place at 11am on Friday, January 8th.
