Obituary

Laura Lloyd Hensch, 96, passed away on November 10th at Staten Island University Hospital surrounded by her close-knit family.  Laura served in World War II as a US Army Nurse and continued her career at the VA Hospital in Brooklyn, NY. Originally from Pittston, PA, she married and settled in Brooklyn, and moved to Staten Island in 1989. Laura enjoyed sewing, knitting, and most especially cooking family dinners; she happily prepared homemade appetizers, dinner, and dessert every Sunday well into her 90s. She was an avid reader, reading several books a week as well as the NY Post cover to cover daily.  Laura loved listening to talk radio and watching Fox News & cooking shows. She was predeceased by her husband of 50 years, William Sr. in 2011. Laura will be greatly missed by her loving sons and their families, William (Carol) and Thomas (Mary Ellen), cherished grandchildren Tommy (Rudy), Megan, Katie and Billy and her first great grandchild arriving in December; her beloved nieces, Barbara Wade, Beth Loquosto and Nancy Krause LaNunziata and lifelong friend Mrs. Dorothy Moore and her extended family.
