April 30, 1959 - September 13, 2018

Laura Penny Little
Henderson, TX
Funeral services for Laura L. Little “Penny,” 59, of Henderson,will be held Tuesday September 18, 2018 at 10:00am in the Chapel of Rader Funeral Home. Visitation will be from 9:00am until 10:00am before the service. Laura died September 13, 2018 while sleeping in the comfort of her bed in her home, the place and time of passing most of us desire. A tumble off a ladder while painting her house in July 2017 led to an accidental discovery of lung cancer eight months later. Cancer stole Laura’s health and eventually her life, BUT it never touched her independent, giving nature and her legacy of love, which lives on in all who knew her.She treated everyone the same, but her grandkids got an extra measure of love and so did the furry and feathered creatures she cared for throughout her life: dogs, birds, rabbits, cats, chickens—even squirrels, but only that one time. She also loved her desert boots, Lowe’s garden center, sweet tea and her friends.However, she also let you know if you rubbed her the wrong way, like the burglar she chased with a bat as a teen, a certain previous boss and even her daughter on occasion.She was born in Houston on April 30, 1959 to Sharon and Preston Plumb and is survived by her daughter, Mandy Clark and two grandchildren, Daniel and Yandel, all of Henderson; father Preston Plumb of Brazoria, sister Kelli Vazquez of Tyler, sister Wendy Smith of Dallas, brother James Plumb of Macomb, Illinois, stepsister Belinda Moran of Lucas, stepbrother Mark Williams of Kilgore and several cousins. Last, but far from least, are the many, many friends and coworkers—past and present—she left behind as she stepped into her perfect new life. Laura was preceded in death by her brother Kevin Vance, mother Sharon Williams and stepfather Doug Williams.
