Laura H. Donahue, 87, of Catskill, passed away on Easter Sunday, April 5, 2015, after a fun family gathering.

A native resident of Catskill, she was a daughter of the late Albert and Anna Tompkins Hock and a graduate of Catskill High School, class of '46. Laura owned and operated "Laura's" Beauty Salon out of her Ivy Terrace home for over 50 years. She was a lifelong member of the First Reformed Church of Catskill and a life member of the Catskill Hose Company No. 1 Ladies Auxiliary.

A generous soul to both family and friends, Laura enjoyed making those around her laugh and feel at home in her company. She loved family gatherings, casino trips, lottery tickets; her time spent camping, and volunteering at her church.

Laura was the beloved wife of the late John "Jack" Donahue who died June 13, 2005; loving sister of Irene Seeley of Catskill and the late Anna Gilmour and Albert W. Hock; aunt of Tommy Hock, Joanne Rodriguez (Joe), Marylou Knull (Mickey), Donna Pope (Scott), and the late Barbara Kilmer (Larry), sister in law of Donald Gilmour of Catskill, and the late Vivian Hock and Lillian Bush. Several great nieces and great nephews and their families also survive.
