Laura Krack passed away peacefully at home on May 4th, 2021, at the age of 62. Laura Krack will be dearly missed by her family, friends and loved ones.
She was born in Bronxville, NY on July 19th, 1958, to Susan and Stephen Nusbaum. Laura was a caring person with a bubbly personality which allowed her to make friends wherever she went. She had wonderful adventures throughout her life. In her 20s, she camped across the United States and saw countless state and National parks. She explored several overseas countries including Italy and Greece with her good friends.
She graduated with a Bachelor’s of Education from Western Connecticut State University and worked at the NY lotto in NYC. She met her husband, Jeffrey Krack when he repaired her car. After a year of asking her out, Jeffrey was eventually able to win a date with her by gifting her lots of flowers, a trend that continued every holiday, birthday and anniversary. They were happily married for 29 years and had 2 daughters, Katelynn and Elizabeth Krack.
She enjoyed planning family vacations to Busch Gardens, Disney World, and Rhode Island. Every family vacation was filled with things to do. There was always an itinerary and a map. All sights and events were well documented with photos. She also enjoyed going on cruises where she got to have even more experiences such as parasailing, rum tasting, and Segway tours.
Laura found enjoyment in taking care of children and bonded with several families over the years. She often met families because of her dogs, Buddy, Sport, Duke, Luke, Lilly, and Molly who were always happy to meet new people. She would frequently sing in jingles and make up songs about everyday things such as feeding the dogs. Her hobbies included doing puzzles, gardening, watching movies/TV shows, going to museums, and going to the beach. Her favorite shows were MacGyver, Matlock, CSI, NCIS, StarGate, Star Wars, Star Trek, and Law and Order. Her DVD collection could rival a Blockbuster store.
Fred D. Knapp & Son Funeral Home, 267 Greenwich Ave. Greenwich, assisted with arrangements. A graveside service was held Thursday (May 13) in Middle Patent Rural Cemetery in Banksville, NY.
