She was raised in Albany, NY where she had a “happy-go-lucky” family life with many jaunts to Florida in the ‘family bus’. After completing high school, she married Clifford Pinkerton on September 26, 1953 and lived in Schenectady, NY until moving to San Francisco, CA in 1961. During their adventurous life together they later moved to Florida and finally Nevada. She was a homemaker and active mother of 5, creating a happy, busy home environment while encouraging her children to enjoy life and try new things. She was widowed in February of 2005 when Cliff was taken by lung cancer. She leaves behind her five children, 6 grandchildren, and 6 great-grand children: Lauren Filice, age 58 of Hollister, CA, son James R. Mitts 3rd, daughter Jennifer Hengel-Pinkerton and grandsons Cody and Lane Hengel. Lawrence Pinkerton, age 56 of Reno, NV and son Allen Pinkerton.

Charles Pinkerton, age 54 of Anchor Point, Alaska, daughter Angela and granddaughter Madison. And finally her devoted son Joseph Pinkerton, age 50 of Carson City, NV. Laury will be remembered for her optimistic approach and constant enthusiasm for life by all who knew her, an attitude that helped her through the health ordeals of the past 5 years. The family wishes to thank her son Joe for his constant care and companionship during those hard times after Cliff’s death.
