Kathleen Anne Laing

September 13, 1956 - June 26, 2018     Age: 61

Kathleen Anne Laing, 61, of Belmont, NC passed away unexpectedly Tuesday, June 26, 2018 at CaroMont Regional Medical Center in Gastonia, NC.

Born in Montgomery, AL September 13, 1956 to the late Brien and Anne Groner Laing, she graduated from Lake Forest High School in Lake Forest, IL.

Kathleen worked various jobs over her lifetime including being a heavy equipment operator for a road building concern but had to retire due to a pulmonary illness. That illness left her handicapped for the last several years of her life.

She had many talents and interests and those carried her in many directions. She grew organic herbs and made her own holistic herb compounds. She was artistically talented and made beautiful leather accessories. She loved all animals but especially her dogs, rabbits and chickens. She liked to travel, hunt and fish. She was generous to friends and strangers alike, offering her home to those in need.

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her elder sister, Scott.

She leaves behind her mother, Lois (Brien) Laing, her sisters, Cynthia (Lanny) McLaughlin and Kimberly Laing, all of Fernandina Beach, Florida, several nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews and cousins, as well as many friends, especially Toni Gillman and Rene Wright. She also leaves behind her much loved dog.


There will be a committal service at the columbarium of Holy Trinity Anglican Church, in Fernandina Beach, at a later date.

    “Kay” was a very old friend of mine. We met many years ago in Chicago. We were both from the northern suburbs. Although we lost touch over the years… I never forgot all the adventures and trips we took, and what she meant to me. I should have answered her last call. Had I known it would be the last one, I would have called her right back. She was always so much fun to be with, and she loved life, and her little Shih Tzu dogs so much. She was very unique. Unlike any of my other friends. She was always there for me when I needed her, and although I knew she was sick, I’m so very sad and shocked to hear of her passing. I found this obituary accidentally. My condolences to her family. I’m so sorry to you all.
