Laura Corinne McGovern, 89, of Canton, Ohio, died peacefully in her home surrounded by her family on Thursday, April 9, 2020. She was born to the late Ralph and Edna (Thompson) Nash on January 19, 1931, in Dennison, Ohio.
Laura was a lifetime homemaker who felt her purpose was to care for her husband, raise her children, and watch her family grow. She loved the simple pleasures in life, such as planting flowers in the Spring, cooking her favorite recipes, enjoying a good BLT, watching her grandson play baseball, a good back rub, and sipping on a strawberry daiquiri until her cheeks grew rosy.
She is preceded in death by her two sisters, Maxine Reiss and Dorothy Cucchiara, nephew Larry Fulton, and her beloved dog, Teddy.
She is survived by her husband of 62 years, Lee; her two children, Kelly (Mark) Mallen and Brian McGovern; two grandsons, Josh and Noah Mallen, granddaughter, McKenzie Mallen; niece, Patti Grimes; and multiple extended family and friends that she adored.
The family wishes to thank those who have extended their emotional support from afar due to the current gathering restrictions. A special thank you to Kathleen, Tina, and Edda from Mercy Hospice for their loving care.
In lieu of flowers, please consider sending donations to Mercy Hospice at 4369 Whipple Ave NW, Canton, Ohio 44718. Condolences and special memories can be shared with the family online at www.heritagecremationsociety.com
