Laurie Marie Philbin, age 36, of Monett, passed away on Jan. 17, 2012 at Benchmark Healthcare following a courageous 10-month battle with cancer.

Laurie was the most dedicated, compassionate, loving, giving, good-hearted LPN at Benchmark Healthcare for over 16 years. Nursing was not just what she did, it was who she was. She will be dearly missed by family, friends, co-workers and church family.

She is survived by her mother, Margaret Philbin; her "other" mom, Evonne Hartline, of Monett; her father, Dave (Pam) Gilbert, of Panama Beach, Fla.; her life partner, Randy Harper; sons: J.R. and Richard Harper; daughters: Jacqueline (Jeremy) McIntire and Brittany Harper; brother: Kenny Philbin; sister: Valerie (Ross) Ward; niece: Deedra Howard; all of Monett; grandchildren: Meki, Kyla, Trey and Derek McIntire, of Monett; Richard Harper, Jr. of Springfield; and her church family at the New Freedom Worship Center in Purdy.

A memorial service will be held at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 21 at the New Freedom Worship Center in Purdy. The family will receive friends at the church from 10 a.m. until the time of the service.
