Laura Grider
Laura Victoria Alexander Grider, entered into eternal rest peacefully on Saturday, April 26, 2014 at the age of 88 after a prolonged battle with Alzheimer's disease.
Laura was born on January 3, 1926 in Burkesville, Ky., to the late Harry and Mattie Groves Alexander. Her family eventually moved to Somerset, Ky., where she met and married the late James William Grider, who preceded her in death in 1979. They shared 22 years of marriage and to this union, two children were born — Stanley Jerome Grider and Fredrick Kyle Grider.
Laura was employed at Beecher Hotel where she was the Head Seamstress. She also worked at Garrett's Tailor Shop for many years until she retired and devoted her time to her sons. 
Laura was affectionately known to many as "Sister" and "Ma." Laura was the only sister to five brothers, which is why her brothers referred to her as "Sister." Many others called her "Ma" which is the name that Kyle initiated. Although Laura had two sons of her own, she always somehow found many other children to claim as her own.
