August 1, 1924 — August 28, 2021

Laurie (Bisson) Inkel, 97, of North Hero, VT passed away peacefully Saturday, August 28, 2021 at her camp with her family by her side.

Her greatest gift to the world was her happy disposition, optimism and love of nature. The family would like to thank everyone that visited her, sent her cards, and brought a smile to her beautiful face. But, mostly we want to thank her ‘granddaughter’ and close friend, Rebecca Holmes, for the endless and loving hours she spent with Mother over the past 2+ years. You are very much loved and appreciated! Laurie has climbed the next mountain for a new view of the next chapter of her life. Her life of selfless devotion to family and friends are at last over! She will be missed! For those that want to do something in her memory, please give someone you love a big hug! Her Funeral Mass will be held on Monday, September 6, 2021 at 11AM St. Monica Church, 79 Summer St. Barre.
