Laurie A. Kitchen of Cuba, Missouri was born Wednesday, December 27, 1972 at Rolla, Missouri to the union of Willis Craft and Dinah (Nee: Schaefer) Craft. Laurie left from this life, suddenly, Friday evening, May 8, 2020 at Missouri Baptist Hospital, Sullivan, Missouri at the age of 47 years.

Laurie was united in marriage to Andy Kitchen at the Church of Christ, Cuba in 2015. Laurie was the proud mom of Melissa.

Laurie worked for Dana Brake Parts for many years, before going to work for Delano Convenience Store and for the last eight-years Laurie worked in the cafeteria for Crawford County R-11 School District. She retired in February 2020 due to her declining health.

Laurie was a “Social Butterfly”. She knew everyone by first name, could talk to anyone and everyone and she never met a stranger. When she traveled out of state, there was always someone she would know. She had a smile that would light up a room, eyes that saw the best in everyone and a heart of gold.

She enjoyed cooking, baking and her specialties were lasagna, enchiladas, coconut cream cake and apple pies. She enjoyed road trips around town, and she spent hours and hours on Facebook. What she truly treasured most in life was spoiling her loving family and the kids at school.

Laurie was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, niece, cousin, daughter-in-law, sister-in-law, and friend of many. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

She is preceded in death by her brother Terry Craft; stepdad Robert “Bob” Farris; brother-in-law Larry Highley and other family and friends.

Those who are left to treasure her memory and to continue her legacy are her loving husband Andy Kitchen of the home; spoiled and amazing daughter Melissa Kitchen of the home; father Willis Craft of Cuba; mother Dinah Farris of Leslie, Missouri; one sister Peggy Highley of Cuba; one brother Michael and wife Kathryn Craft of Rogersville, Missouri; one niece Ashley and husband Mike Lomax of Salado, Texas; two nephews AJ and Eli Craft of Rogersville; mother-in-law Mable Kitchen of Cuba; aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law and many friends.

With the COVID-19 pandemic and in the best health interest of everyone, Laurie’s visitation will be family only. Family ask that you remember them in your thoughts and prayers through this difficult time.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held later, after the COVID-19 pandemic is over.

The Mizell Funeral Home is honored to be serving Laurie’s family.
