Helen will also be missed by her wide circle of friends and extended family.

Helen was a devout Catholic and staunch supporter of the Slovak Catholic Sokol. She loved to enjoy the magnificent beach at the family condo in Reddington Shores, Florida where many a lasting memory was created while watching the sun melt into the Gulf of Mexico. Helen loved to cook her secret Slovak recipes and was a generous, caring and kind woman truly loved by all who knew her.

In memory of  Laurie Burrows, The Thyme to Thrive Foundation was created to celebrate and recognize Laurie and all that she brought to life. The Thyme to Thrive Foundation was originally focused around cancer, and today, reflects, more fully all that Laurie represents and did while she was here: help people to live fulfilling and happy lives.
