Interment will be at Greenwood Cemetery under the direction of Kilpatrick Funeral Home of Ruston, LA. Rev. Leslie Stephens will officiate. Born Laura Turner 99 years ago on March 3, 1918, in Old Floyd, Louisiana, she grew up the youngest child of Glennie Wells Turner and Clyde Turner on a West Carroll Parish farm experiencing the wonders of the Model T Ford, the great flood of 1927,as well living through the great depression when her lawyer father never charged his clients a legal fee. Laura is preceded in death by her sister, Glen Turner Hair; brother, Clyde Turner; and husband, Stephen Kendall Hearn. She is survived by Stephen Kendall Hearn, Jr. and Theresa Garlington, Stephanie Hearn Goff; Grandchildren: Addison and Shelley Goodrich Goff, Laura and Barry Guinn, Dorothy and Wayne Goulet, Nick and Shannon Willis Goff, Alison Hearn and Allen Darnell, John and Brittney Short Hearn and Michael and Wendy Traenkner Hearn; Great-grandchildren: Addison Goff, Elizabeth Guinn, Michael Guinn, Kendall Goff, Nicholas Goff, Lily Darnell, Clara Darnell and Pearce Darnell. “Lolly”, as she is known affectionately by her grandchildren, attended Louisiana Tech, was a member of Kappa Delta Sorority, and has the dubious distinction of flying over the campus with the then Louisiana Tech president's son buzzing the campus. After graduating from Louisiana Tech, she taught chemistry and home economics in St. Mary, Parish where she met and married Kendall Hearn. After later moving to Ruston, Laura obtained an associate degree in library science and worked at the Louisiana Tech Library until she retired.
She was an active member of Ruston Garden Study Club and worked tirelessly as a volunteer with Ruston Christian Community Action.
