I worked with Lauri during my residency and she was fiery and fun to work with. I'm so sorry to hear she is gone. Too soon.

I fondly remember working with Laurie while I was a medical student and resident at Iowa from 1999-2004. We had the opportunity to reconnect at the ASA meeting a few years ago. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

Lauri was a wonderful colleague who cared about children and believed in providing the best care possible. I had the pleasure of working with her on a project that she cared deeply about while I was at Iowa.

You were always such a keen and enthusiastic anesthesiologist, a respected teacher and a great supportive co-worker. I'm sorry to hear of your passing. My deepest condolences to your husband, Kirk and family.

Lauri was a wonderful colleague. She was sincerely interested in patient safety and quality care. She and I worked more closely this fall on education items and I will truly miss her input and expertise. My sympathies to her family. She will be missed at UIHC.

I knew Lauri as a medical student, a resident and a valued colleague. She was a skilled anesthesiologist and uncompromising in the care she provided to all the children she came in contact with. She had a big heart, a quick sense of humor, and I was fortunate to be counted among her many friends. I will miss her greatly.
