Meriden - Laurie Patricia Hall died suddenly at home, Saturday, January 9, 2009. She was born September 6, 1962, the fourth daughter of Bruce Hall and the late Joan Fearn Hall. Laurie worked in the insurance industry after graduating from Middletown H.S., and in the recent past had used her self-taught culinary skills in several area eateries, most recently The Lunch Box in Meriden. Her love for her family, and her warmth and gentleness will be missed by all of us who loved her.

She is survived by her precious child, Alyssa Hall-Hanscom, her partner, Dan Hanscom both of Meriden and her sisters, Sharon Amoroso and her husband Anthony of Lydonville, VT and Linda and her husband Daniel Hatch of Meriden.
