Mary Diane (Dee) Laurich
June 27, 1928 to October 4, 2019 (Age 91)
Dee Laurich, 91, of Kings Mountain passed away on October 4, 2019 at Testa Family Hospice House. She was born in San Antonio, Texas and was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Bob Laurich, and two sons-in law, Alessandro Marini and Edmundo Zuniga.
As an Army brat she lived in many places in the US and also in Europe with her parents. She graduated from Barnard College with a degree in History. Seeking adventure, she took a teaching job in Chile, SA, where she met her husband Bob and where all of their children were born. They continued to travel the globe for work and love of exploring with family and friends. Kings Mountain was her home from 1985 to 1993 and again from 2012 to now. Her spirit of adventure, grace under pressure, care for others and special midnight chocolate-chip cookies made her an amazing role model for all.
