Laura K. Goodridge, 66, of Burlington, KY passed away Monday, March 23, 2020 at Woodcrest Nursing and Rehab Center in Elsmere, KY. Laura was born on July 11, 1953 in Belleview, KY to Alpha Lee Sr. and Emma Mae Rogers. Laura was one of five children, and she loved growing up in Belleview. Laura studied business, and obtained her Masters and her Law Degree from Northern Kentucky University, and Chase Law School. After college Laura started her career as an Attorney, and worked the later part of her life as an Estate Attorney. She loved her work, but her true passion was volunteering and helping those in need. She was a Child Advocate for the State of Kentucky, and making sure others were cared for was always important to her. She was a wife, mother, grandmother, and sister, and her family was her world. Laura loved having the family together for meals and holidays, but her grandchildren were the light of her life. Laura lost a tough battle with cancer, and she will be dearly missed. Her parents and her brother, David Rogers preceded her in death. Laura is survived by her loving husband: Mark Goodridge, her beloved children: Kelly (Jeff) Ball, and Mark Shannon Goodridge, her cherished grandchildren: Mackenzie Brooke Goodridge, Bailey Raegen Goodridge, Cooper Lee Goodridge, and Jonathan David Ball, her dear siblings: Alpha (Bonnie) Rogers Jr., Eddie (Gloria) Rogers, and Rick (Diana) Rogers, and several loving niece, nephews, cousins, and friends. Services for Laura will be handled in private at the convenience of her family.
