Laura L. Wood

November 5, 1964 — May 24, 2024


Laura L. Wood, age 59, passed away unexpectedly on May 24, 2024, in Anderson, IN. Born on November 5, 1964, in Anderson to Bill and Vernedo Wood. 

Having spent over two decades at D&D Brake, followed by successful stints at Caterpillar and BMI, Laura's professional journey was a testament to her resilience and hardworking demeanor. Laura loved her work friends whom she cherished dearly and considered family. Laura's dedication to her job shone brightly through the years as she left a lasting impact on all those she worked with.

Outside of work, Laura was an avid Tony Stewart fan. She also enjoyed watching the Colts play. She loved to sing and dance any chance she could and was always the life of the party with her friends and family. Her generous and loving nature extended beyond the workplace, as she was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. Her warm personality and kind heart earned her a vast circle of friends who valued her companionship and support.

In her leisure time, Laura found solace in riding motorcycles, indulging in bass fishing excursions, and basking in the warmth of the sun. These hobbies reflected her adventurous spirit and love for the outdoors.
