Obituary: Laura Kristine Bell Wood

Bell Wood <! >

2/28/78 ~ 9/19/03

Laura Kristine Bell Wood, our loving and beloved wife, mother, daughter, and sister, died unexpectedly at her home on Friday, September 19, 2003. Laura was born February 28, 1978, in Provo, Utah to Jim and Kristi Bell. She was the first of six daughters, and her sisters were her best friends.

Laura graduated from Orem High School, where she met her future husband, Trevor Wood. She was involved in drama and was recognized for her writing in high school, and then attended Utah Valley State College. She married the young man she spoke of as her soul mate on August 16, 1997 in the Mt. Timpanogos Temple.

Laura possessed an unconditional love for her family and friends, and provided thoughtful service and kindness to many. Her family was her greatest joy, and the birth of her son, William Trevor, on July 18, 2001, was the day she had dreamed of for years. She was a deeply devoted mother and gave Will love and affection that he will carry with him throughout his life.

Laura is survived by her husband, Trevor; her son, Will; her parents, James and Kristi Bell of Orem; her sisters, Shannon (Matt) Aaron, Dianna, Lindsay, Stephanie, and Dana; her grandparents and great-grand mother; her mother-in-law, Kris Wood of Orem and father-in-law, Dan Wood of Orem; a brother-in-law, Josh Wood, of Orem; a sister-in-law, Keelie Wood of Orem; and by many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Each was a dear friend and will continue in their lives, strengthened and blessed by her love.

Funeral services will be held Wednesday, Sept. 24, 2003, at 11 a.m., at the Canyon View Stake Center, 575 East 800 North, Orem. Friends may call at the Stake Center, Tuesday evening, from 6-8 p.m., or Wednesday morning, one hour prior to services. Interment, Orem City Cemetery. Services under the direction of Berg Mortuary of Provo.
