Obituary for Laura Kathryn McGinnis

Laura Kathryn McGinnis
Born March 23, 1996

Laura's journey on this earth ended today, October 15th, and our hearts are broken.

Our little squirrel has such a spirit about her that you couldn't help but to love her. She was spunky, vibrant, loved life and she fought fiercely.

This loss has sent a shock wave throughout the community of people who loved her. We all expected Laura to pull through, because, well, she always has. But this time was dlfferent, This time she couldn't win.

Laura lived more of a life in 23 short years, than the majority of us could hope to achieve in an entire lifetime. She loved, laughed, and lived fiercely, and we should all aspire to LIVE LIKE LAURA.

When Laura was born, we all agreed we could handle this together, if no other person with Cystinosis had to walk her same path. In that spirit, the family asks that in lieu of flowers, to please make a contribution in honor of Laura, to the Cystinosis Research Network.

Laura would wish for us all to love one another, spread kindness, and live life to the fullest, just as she did. Peace to all the broken hearted -

Please join us on Sunday, October 27th at 4pm at the Spinning Jenny (Address: 107 Cannon St, Greer, SC 29651) in Greer, SC as we celebrate the joy that was knowing Laura Kathryn McGinnis. All are welcome as we reminisce about the privilege of knowing our squirrel.

You may also visit the Live Like Laura page on facebook to make a donation to her charity.

My heart is breaking for all of you! I loved her so. Kathy is my dearest friend and through her I followed Laura’s precious life. She touched so many lives just by being Laura. So strong and so beautiful. I guess God just needed another angel in Heaven. My heart and all of my prayers go out to all of you. I love all of you with all of my heart!❤️🙏
