In Memory

Laurel L. Boyle (Scola)

Laurel L. (Boyle) Scola, of Racine, passed away peacefully at her home with her loving husband by her side on December 2, 2023.  Laurel was born in Kenosha on October 1, 1946 to the late Laurence and Everell (nee: Chambers) Boyle.  Laurel graduated from Mary D. Bradford High School in 1964.

On June 24, 1966 at Our Lady of the Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Kenosha, Laurel was united in marriage to the love of her life, Arthur M. Scola.  Laurel and Art had 57 wonderful years together.

Laurel was the manager of circulation at the Kenosha Labor Paper for many years. Preceding her employment, Laurel was fortunate to stay at home to raise her four children.

Laurel enjoyed vacationing at their cabin on Lake Lucerne, engaging in memorable conversation, driving her "Love Bug" and reading a good book.  She was an avid collector of many things who loved to decorate for the holidays.  Laurel was always generous in helping others in need.  She loved her flowers, a great meal and animals of all kinds.  Laurel was a beloved grandmother who helped with homework, crafts, childcare, sleepovers, a few extra bucks, and lots of hugs and laughs.  What Laurel loved the most was spending time with Art, family, and friends.  Laurel will be dearly missed by all.

Laurel is survived by her devoted husband, Arthur, her children, Beth (Douglas) Johnson, Stacey Scola, Susan (Keith) Streckenbach, and Arthur (Nicole) Scola.  She is also survived by 17 grandchildren and 9 great grandchildren.  Along with her parents and in-laws, Laurel was preceded in death by her sister, Patricia Gallup, sister-in-law, Roseann Camilli, brother-in-law, Ken Bredek, nephew Todd Bredek and nieces Deanna Boyle and Kari Aker..

I remember Laurel. She was a good student and had a great smile. It saddens me to see another classmate pass. 

Laurel, from the obituary, had a wonderful life. I wish the family my condolences.
