Dolores "Laurie" Herbert Life Story

Dolores Ann “Laurie” (Roscoe) Herbert, 90, of Elkhart, passed away on Thursday, January 25, 2024, at East Lake Nursing & Rehabilitation. She was born on March 21, 1933, in Highland Falls, NY, to the late Jake and Josephine (Snyder) Roscoe. On February 12, 1955, in Highland Falls, NY, Laurie married the love of her life, the late Joseph Stuart “Stu” Herbert. He passed away on March 8, 2008.

Laurie is survived by her loving sons, Stuart M. “Stu” Herbert of Elkhart, Kevin J. (Donna) Herbert of Bloomington, IN, and Brian J. Herbert of San Francisco, CA; grandchildren, Amanda (Jon), Samuel, and Paige; 4 great-grandchildren; loving kitty cat, Lou Lou; and a loving host of extended family, friends, and acquaintances.

Laurie was preceded in death by her loving husband of 53 years, Stu; parents; and siblings, Michael Roscoe and JoAnn Zeigar.

In accordance with Laurie’s wishes, cremation has been chosen and a private graveside service and inurnment will take place at Rice Cemetery’s Grace Tower. Father Logan Parrish of St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church will officiate. Billings Funeral Home of Elkhart has been assisting the family with arrangements.

Laurie was a longtime member of Phi Sigma Alpha and was a member of St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church at one time. Later in life, she continued to keep her Catholic faith alive and strong, participating in live tapings of Mass services and praying the rosary when needed.

Laurie raised her children and grandchildren, caring for every family member with the utmost care and love. In her younger years, she was an avid bowler and as time went on, she enjoyed sewing, creating crocheted afghans, gardening, and going out shopping anywhere she could. Most importantly, she loved spending quality time with her family and her beloved feline companion, Lou Lou, who brought her so much company and joy.

Laurie will best be remembered as a faithful woman who led a loving, caring, and selfless life. She always had an energetic and happy air to her and loved to be social with others. Laurie, along with all the love and joy she shared, will be dearly missed by those whose hearts she touched throughout her life.
