Well-known Skippack waitress Lauralee Pursell died suddenly Tuesday after suffering a brain aneurism.

The following information was provided by Legacy.com:

Lauralee Dawn Pursell, 48, of Creamery, passed away suddenly at Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia on January 14, 2014. She and her husband, Thomas F. Pursell, would have observed their 23rd wedding anniversary on May 25th of this year.

Born December 10, 1965 in Norristown, she was the daughter of the late Richard and Margaret (Bell) Little and was a 1983 graduate of Perkiomen Valley High School. Lauralee enjoyed being a waitress at Chiaro's Pizzeria in Skippack.

She was an avid reader and enjoyed gardening, but her favorite past-time was time with her family.

Through the loss of her life, Lauralee has given, through the gift of organ donation, at least five others the chance of long, healthy lives.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by four children, Jeffrey Little of Creamery, Jacquelyn Little-Pursell of Bay City, MI, Thomas J. Pursell and his wife, Jen, of Skippack, and Richard D. Pursell of Creamery.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend her funeral service at 3:30PM on Monday, January 20, at the R. L. Williams, Jr. Funeral Home, Inc., 3440 Skippack Pike @ Cedars Rd., Skippack, where friends may call for the viewing from 2-3:15PM. Interment will be private.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in her memory to the Montgomery County S.P.C.A. at www.montgomerycountyspca.org or to the Gift of Life Donor Program at www.donors1.org. Online condolences may be made to the family at www.RLWilliamsFuneralHome.com
