Laura H. Darsey

Laura H. Darsey, 69, of Rochester, Kentucky, passed away Saturday, March 2, 2019, at The Medical Center in Bowling Green, KY.

Laura was born January 7, 1950 in Fulton County, Georgia, to the late EJ and Annie Laura McIntosh Hutchinson. Laura resided in Shellman Bluff, Georgia, for many years prior to moving to Kentucky. She became a member of Shellman Bluff Baptist Church on Oct 11, 1996. Laura loved to play the piano and organ for the church. After moving to Kentucky, she became a member of Pleasant Grove Missionary Baptist Church.

Laura is survived by two sons, Cody Darsey (Danielle) of Rochester, KY and Barry Darsey (Amy) of Smyrna, GA; three grandchildren, Luke and Sam Darsey of Smyrna, GA and Evan Darsey of Rochester, KY; one sister, Joanna Hutchinson of Shellman Bluff, GA; one brother, Marty Hutchinson (Alice) of Bonaire, GA; one nephew, Allan Hutchinson (Jamie) and one niece, Amy Hutchinson, both of Georgia.

Our Laura was a very loving mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, family member and friend. She was a shining light for what the grace of our glorious God can do in a person’s life through the power of Jesus Christ. Her devotion to her Lord, family and friends, her gentle nature, her touch of stubbornness and her infectious laugh, which her niece told her would be at the top of everyone’s laugh list, will be dearly missed. We love you, Laura.

A Celebration of Life will be held in honor of Laura at Shellman Bluff Baptist Church on Saturday, March 30, 2019. Visitation with the family will be from 10-11 a.m. Memorial service will begin at 11 a.m., with a meal to follow at the church. Burial will be private.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

    Laura, always had a smile on her face and she and I became good friends after meeting each other at Shellman Bluff Baptist Church and kept in touch with her even after she moved to Kentucky. She had a wonderful outlook on life. Also, I sent a text to Laura’s phone after I found out that she was in the hospital this last time, and Barry was my ‘Angel”, I knew that Laura probably wouldn’t be able to respond, and of course she didn’t, but Barry took the time to respond to me and tell me who he was and to reach out to me. Barry like I said before, I will be forever thankful for that “Text” .
    I do not know if you will be at the”Celebration of Life” or not, but I plan to be there and would like to meet you in person if you are. I do however understand that it is a long way off.
