It is with sadness that I have to announce that long-time Rotarian Laurie Cavagnaro passed away on May 9, 2020.  Laurie is a Past President of Reading Rotary.  She was 74.
Laurie was retired and split her time between Reading, Hampton Beach and Boca Raton.  She had been the Customer Service Manager at RMLD for many years.  Since retirement, she has been an Honorary Reading Rotarian.  
Laurie was full of life, loved to talk and make close friends.  She loved Rotary and was very active in the Reading Community for many years, including the Chamber, Town Meeting and St. Agnes Church in addition to Rotary.
Laurie leaves her very close family, including husband Bob, daughters Chris Kelley (Tim) and Lori Foley (Ken) and grandchildren Betsy, Mary Kate and TJ Kelley and Robert, Allison, Emily and Julia Foley, in addition extended family and numerous dear friends.
Laurie planted the seeds of Rotary in our family.  Husband Bob would bartend at our annual Auction, Chris, Lori and Ken help organize and run the Auction for years.  Her grandchildren help found and run the RMHS Interact Club and were pressed into service at many Rotary events.  Not only was Laurie my mother-in-law, she was my Rotary Sponsor.  Rotary is a family affair in the Cavagnaro-Kelley-Foley clan due largely to her.
Arrangements are through Douglass, Edgerly & Bessom Funeral Home.  A memorial service will be held at a later date to be determined.  Donations in Laurie's memory may be made to DJK Foundation or Reading Rotary Charitable Trust.
