Laura Jean Locke was born June 16, 1930 in Enterprise, Ore., and passed away on March 20, 2015 in Ogden, Utah. She was married to her high school sweet heart, Wayne Locke, for 56 years. Wayne and her grandson, Cody, preceded her in passing. Laura Jean spent the majority of her years working for the Wallowa County Court as a police dispatcher, DMV, Tax Collector and the county Accountant. She was involved in many activities over the years and had a wide circle of friends. The most important priority in her life was her family and she was the calm for all of them in the storm of life. She was always there for them and her family was blessed by her love. She will be greatly missed, but will be carried in their hears forever. She is survived by her daughter, Terry Earsley, her son, Kirk Locke, and four wonderful grandchildren, and seven great-grandsons. Laura Jean Locke is now with her loved ones on the other side, but we will all see her again.
Memorial services for Laura Jean Locke will be held at the Enterprise Christian Church on Saturday, Sept. 5, at 11 a.m. with David Bruce officiating. Laura would like any donations to be given to Community Connection.
