Laura Delores Schubert passed away with her family by her side and joyfully went home to Heaven on Monday, Sept. 10, 2012 at St Mary's Hospital---a sinner saved by God's grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone. She understood and believed the truth of John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life". She believed that Jesus Christ did enough to save her when He died for her sins and rose again to give her eternal life as a gift. Laura has now experienced the reality of 2 Corinthians 5:8 where every believer in Christ is promised by God that "absent from the body" results in being "present with the Lord". She died without fear of where she would spend eternity for the Bible clearly states, "These things have I written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God that you may know that you have eternal life".
Laura was born in South Dakota on Sept. 19, 1930.
She received her three year nursing degree from St Mary's School of Nursing in Rochester, Minn., in 1951. Laura was united in marriage to Lawrence Schubert in 1954. She later went back to school and received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then went on to receive a Masters Degree in both gerontology (The College of St Scholastica - 1985) and nursing (University of MN - 1986). She then taught at The College of St Scholastica for 17 years. Laura finished her career working as a nurse consultant, traveling and working at multiple Skilled Nursing Homes as an Interim Director of Nursing. She retired on March 30, 2012.
Laura is survived by Lawrence "Larry", her husband of 58 years; and five children David (Rhonda) Schubert, Linda Schubert, Karen Moore, Julie (Assaf) Diab, and Diane Schubert, as well as five grandchildren: Andrea (Joel) Vlaminck, Samara and Jack Diab, and Abigail and Rosa Schubert.
The family extends a special thank you to the outpatient oncology team at Essentia Health Duluth Clinic and the inpatient oncology team at St Mary's Hospital for their excellent care and compassion.
Laura was a force to be reckoned with; she was uniquely herself, an extraordinary person who touched many lives with her care and compassion. She loved her family and her work and will be greatly missed.
