She attended Chesapeake Public Schools. Laura worked at Norfolk State University for 33 years before she retired as a Facilities Management Supervisor. Even after her retirement Laura, being the hard worker she was, worked at Northside Middle School for a short time. When asked to describe Laura, one of the first words that comes to mind is big-hearted. Her love for her family, especially her children and grandchildren were the closest thing to agape love here on earth. She raised her children to be loving and family oriented. She took care of her grandchildren and greatgrandchildren with so much love and fervor. She had an unwavering faith in God and was certainly a praying mother, grandmother, wife, sister, aunt, and cousin. She was the matriarch of her family and she always said to keep family close.

Laura was predeceased by her brother, Wallace Bowe. She leaves to cherish her memory her husband Danny N. Corprew Sr. who will miss her dearly. Her three daughters Angela C.

    Angela and family, I am very sorry to hear of your loss. There are truly no words that I can think of to console such a loss. But I do offer you this, rely on memories. Precious memories, let them linger when you miss her most. Think of her smile, her laughter, or a song she would sing or hum.
