Lauren was born in Plainview, NY and grew up in Central Islip NY until 1998 when her family moved to Morgantown WV. Lauren graduated class of 2000 at Morgantown High School. Lauren has since created a wonderful life for herself and her boys in Morgantown. She worked as a dispatcher at Ruby Memorial Hospital and loved her job and the people she worked with. She was an amazing mother, sister, daughter and friend. Lauren was always a friendly person even as a child and she was always a friend to the friendless. She was always her unique self no matter what anyone said, she was a little wild, fun and loved her music. If you knew Lauren you knew she loved to cook and was very good at it. She was always ready to feed someone. Above all else her boys were everything to her and they brought her the most happiness. She will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her.
