The Voice of the Community Since 1909, Serving Moorcroft and Pine Haven, Wyoming

Laura Danielle Kenway

Laura Danielle Kenway went home to be with the Lord on January 23, 2023. Laura was born on February 3, 1990 to Gary and Evonna Schelling.

She is survived by her husband, Chris Kenway; her father, Gary Schelling; siblings, Ryan (Tammy) Schelling, Ami (Tristan) Hanson, Bethany (Levi) Mueller; grandparents Ken and Lois Schelling; as well as a multitude of beloved nieces, nephews, family and friends.

Laura attended Moorcroft Christian Elementary and Jr./Sr. High Schools where she was always known and loved by classmates and teachers. In school and beyond, Laura was known and cherished for her vivacious spirit, her quickness to smile and create smiles around herself and, especially, her love and concern for those around herself.

Laura carried a light in and around herself that she didn't always see, but those that knew and loved her saw reflected in her presence.

Laura had the spiritual gift of "helper". There were no types of help Laura wasn't happy to give.

She loved to learn how to do new things and was such a blessing to people around her. She loved to create and build many lovely gifts and keepsakes out of wood and with photography.

Laura had a spirit of industry and truly enjoyed cutting wood and collecting furniture pieces to be renovated. Laura had a love for the Lord, her family and friends and her animals.

Laura will be deeply missed by her family on earth, though we know she is now being lovingly embraced by her family in Heaven.

"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." Psalm 147:3

Laura was preceded in death by her mother, Evonna (Blakeman) Schelling; sister and angel nephew, Andrea and Cyrus Mills; grandfather, Kenneth Blakeman; grandmother, Fern (Cordingly) Blakeman; and her cousin, Heather Blakeman.

Memorial services were held Saturday, January 28, 2023 at Cornerstone Ministries in Moorcroft, Wyoming.
