Obituary of Laura Sue (Packard) White

Guilford - Laura "Laurie" (Packard) White, 55, passed away peacefully at home in Guilford, Maine, on September 8, 2021, after a short illness. Laurie was born October 22, 1965, in Dover-Foxcroft, Maine.

She balanced being a wife, mother, employee, and full-time student to finish college.

They enjoyed 34 years of marriage together, raising four children in Guilford. Anyone who knew Laurie knew she loved to have fun. Her sense of humor made every situation a little more entertaining.

She is survived by her loving husband, Andrew White I; her children, Jessica Burdin and her husband Nick, Alysson Michaud and her husband Eric, Brooke White, and Andrew White II; her grandchildren, Benjamin, Rylee, Jaykob, Taylor, Carson, and Autumn; her stepfather, Carl Burke; her stepmother, Dianna Packard; and her siblings, Christine, Sandra, Tim, and Charlie.
