A 30-year-old woman has died following a short illness.
Laura Osborne, a well- known member of the Daventry community, passed away on Thursday, June 13. She was born in 1983 when she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy and attended Brook Special School in Rugby.
She was described as a fighter in coping with her disability and warding off several bouts of pneumonia without complaining. Mum Lynne formed Positive Parents, a support group for families in a similar situation.
The group offered emotional support, get-togethers, outings, holidays and assistance with benefits and grants. Positive Parents supported hundreds of families in the Daventry area for over 15 years.
At the age of 20 Laura moved to Terrace Wing young disabled unit at Town Thorns in Essenhall.
Laura’s family would like to thank Terrace Wing Staff and the University Hospital Coventry for their excellent care and family and friends for their support. They said staff at the TW became an important part of Laura’s life.
The celebration of Laura’s life took place this morning at St Augustine’s Church.
