Laurie Jean Kohnke entered the world on Nov. 17, 1955. Laurie enjoyed gardening, laughing, time with her family, baseball, and most of all, her animals. Laurie spent many years as a dedicated vet assistant and spent many hours volunteering with The North American Versatile Hunting Dog Association. Laurie and her husband, John, have owned Kulien Shoes since 1986. Laurie was a hoot of a lady and took delight in making people smile. She was taken away from us far too early, on July 15, 2022. She was a beloved sister and wife, and is survived by her sister, Andrea, and devoted husband, John. Laurie will be missed beyond measure.
