Obituary for Laurie Ruiz (Woodcock)

Laurie Ann Ruiz, the daughter of Hayes and Judy (Poffenberger) Woodcock, was born October 2, 1963 in Estherville, Iowa. She passed away on Saturday, February 9, 2019, at her home in Estherville, Iowa, at the age of 55 years.
She graduated from Estherville High School. On July 5, 2003, Laurie was united in marriage to Juan Ruiz. The couple made their home in Estherville and had one son Justin. Laurie was employed at area businesses throughout her life, but being a mom and wife was the most important job to her. Laurie previously attended Church of the Nazarene. Juan passed away on September 2, 2017.
Laurie’s passion was raising and spending time with her son. She also enjoyed socializing with her friends, listening to country music, and going to the occasional concert. She loved to cook and would bake tasty treats for her family and friends.
Laurie will best be remembered for being a dedicated mother and friend. She was always generous in sharing what she had and thinking of others. She had a strong sense of humor that stayed with her throughout her life.
Left to cherish Laurie's memory are her son, Justin of Estherville; her father, Hayes Woodcock of Estherville: her brothers Rob (Susan Wehe) Woodcock of Dallas, Texas and Brian (Tina) Woodcock of Junction City, Kansas; her niece and nephew Nicholas and Brianna Woodcock; Juan’s siblings: Delia, Yolando, Ricardo, and Molly; and her cat Lightening Bug.
Laurie has been preceded in death by her husband and her mother.
