Laurie Richmond Denison

Laurie Richmond Denison, age 65, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 17, 2024, at the Care Dimensions Hospice House in Lincoln, Massachusetts.  Born in Boston, Massachusetts on November 2, 1958, she was the daughter of the late Thomas J. and Agnes Catherine (Tierney) Richmond.  Laurie was raised in Brookline, Massachusetts, where she graduated from Brookline High School with the Class of 1976.  


Following her graduation, Laurie took a position with CNA Insurance in the automotive division of their Boston branch.  She went on to make her home in the city, first in the West Roxbury neighborhood and later in Hyde Park.  Laurie went on to take a position as an investigator with CNA's Special Claims Department and left the city behind, settling into her home in Norwood, Massachusetts.   While working full time, in order to elevate her career, Laurie returned to her education, taking courses to earn her Paralegal Certificate from Newbury College.  

 

Laurie married her beloved husband, Robert W. Denison, at a private ceremony on Church Island in the middle of Squam Lake in New Hampshire on September 14, 2002.   Together, they made their home in Walpole, Massachusetts and Laurie took a position as a paralegal at a law firm in Boston.  Laurie later took a job with Goganian and Associates, PC in Needham, as a paralegal, concentrating on medical malpractice law.  More recently, Laurie settled in her custom built dreamhouse in Norfolk, where she took great pride in caring for the flowers and plants around her house.

 

Laurie worked hard throughout her life, but always looked forward to time off, enjoying everything life had to offer.  As motorcycle enthusiast, Laurie would count down the days until the spring when she could take her Moto Guzzi out for a ride.  She introduced Rob to the world of European Motorcycles, and together they enjoyed countless adventures on the road.  While Laurie loved the open road, she often spent warm summer days lying on the beach with her best friend, Kim, soaking up the sun.  Back at home, Laurie loved being surrounded by her many pets over the years, welcoming dogs and cats into her house and feeding a neighborhood raccoon or two.  Once the colder weather began to set in, Laurie enjoyed relaxing indoors, catching up on various television shows, watching movies, or listening to music.   Her love for music passed through many genres, including Classic Rock and Jazz to modern Indie Rock, Pop and Hip Hop.   As an avid reader, Laurie looked forward to diving into a new book, usually focused on historical fiction, or crime and detective novels.

 

Laurie was truly a free spirit, living life as she saw fit.  She and Rob enjoyed road trips to try a new restaurant or take in the sights.   Back at home, the couple loved dining out at their favorite restaurants, often becoming friends with the owners and staff.  Her kind heart drew many friends to Laurie’s side, spending countless hours with those she welcomed into her life and entertaining everyone with her great sense of humor.

 

Because life was so generous to Laurie, she firmly believed in giving back to those in need.   Laurie generously donated to many causes throughout her life but held a special place in her heart for veterans and animals.  

 

Beloved wife of Robert "Rob" W. Denison.

Loving sister of Nancy A. Muise and her husband, Martin, of Norfolk, and the late Thomas J. Richmond, Jr.

Also survived by her dear cousin, Paul Monahan, of West Roxbury and her best friend, Kim Magri, of Norwood.
