Laura Lynn Hoelting, 50, of Gilbert, AZ, passed away on August 23 rd 2020.

Laura was born in St. Charles, MO on October 14 th , 1969. She graduated from St.
Charles High School and continued on to receive a Masters Degree in Occupational
Therapy from Washington University in St. Louis, MO.

Laura’s passion for helping others was the reason she pursued a career in Occupational
Hand Therapy. She had many patients who adored her not only for her ability to heal
but her ability to make them smile and laugh. She enjoyed the outdoors, hiking,
kayaking, paddle boarding, and traveling. Her decision to move to Arizona was centered
around her love for the outdoors and she was always seeking the next adventure. She
ran and completed numerous marathons around the country, including the Boston
Marathon in 2004. She recently celebrated her 50 th birthday by taking a trip to Peru to
hike Machu Picchu. Most of all she loved visiting and spending time with her nieces and
nephews back home in Missouri and Illinois. She was a loving daughter, sister, niece,
aunt, godmother, and friend and will be truly missed and always remembered by those
who loved her. In most recent years, Laura’s faith in Jesus Christ was her passion and
we find comfort in knowing that she is now at peace with the Lord in Heaven.

Laura is survived by her mother Lynn Hoelting, sister Lisa Brinkmann (David), sister
Lynda Offerman (CJ), brother Ryan Hoelting (Kelly), her nieces Addysen Hale, Elliott
Hoelting, and Olivia Offerman, nephews Jeremy Brinkmann (Jessica), Evan Brinkmann,
Rainn Hoelting, Austin Offerman, and great nephew Brayden Brinkmann, and many
aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.

Laura is preceded in death by her father Ronald Hoelting, grandparents John and Melba
Buyan and Ralph and Eleanor Hoelting.

A celebration of life will be held on September 25, 2020 from 4:00-8:00pm at 370
Lakeside Park in St. Charles, MO.

It is only now, a week away from her Celebration of Life, that I am able to coherently express the extreme grief and heartbreak I feel over the loss of Laura. My emotions have ran the spectrum: guilt, anger, sadness, fear, anxiety, self pity, and much more. No posting can come close to adequately reflecting my love for this woman who made such an enormous impact on my life and others. She was truly a triple threat of goodness: intelligence, beauty, and spirit.

I am writing this from the desk where I received the terrible news of Laura's passing. It still seems so unreal. I miss talking to her. I miss her smile. I miss her touch. I miss her laugh. I miss the way she would say my name at the beginning of a sentence when she wanted my attention. I miss leaving her messages before she woke up and receiving her messages when I woke up. I miss making our plans to see one another. I miss sharing scripture readings and listening to her daily devotions. I miss her sending me love songs. I miss sending her flowers. I miss the dreams of travel and adventure we would talk about. I miss learning about each others hobbies and interests. I miss talking about the trials and tribulations of our day. I miss talking with Laura a dozen times each day we were apart. I miss sharing our feelings and thoughts, dreams and fears, laughs and tears.

Part of Laura's beauty and charm was her daily routine with her hair and how she would wear it for the day. When I would complain of her loose hair on the floor, Laura would jokingly say those were "love notes" to remind me of her when she was away. Those hairs used to bother me, but not any more.

In an example of how a common act can become a memorable event, this past spring Laura and I replaced a faucet which I was sure was going to leak. I've replaced dozens of faucets and always had at least a small leak each time. I was incredulous that there were no leaks this time. With a hug, Laura said, "we make a good team!" She was so right. With Laura in my life I was a better man. Being apart was a struggle for us both.

We would often talk about our first date and first kiss. What a magical 6+ hour evening that was! We walked and talked all over downtown Indianapolis getting to know one another. We must have logged over 5 miles and all the while Laura in heels. I wish I could go back to that July evening of 2018. Despite our living so far apart, we were able to spend, when combined, well over two full months together this year. Laura said to me last month, "...our third year is going to be the best one yet!" I am so grateful for our time together.

I pray for all the people who Laura touched by her life and example. I especially pray for her family whom she loved dearly. I pray for her friends and her enemies (because she would want me to). I HOPE and I PRAY that I see her again someday as I continue to develop in faith and understanding in my human frailties.
