Laura Irene O’Donovan
Laura Irene (Rizzo) O’Donovan, age 62, of Astoria, passed away on November 23, 2021.
Laura was born January 27, 1959 in Rockville Centre, New York, to John and Mary Rizzo. She graduated from Baldwin High School in Baldwin, New York in 1977.
Laura was passionate about animals, enjoyed live music, and found joy attending community events and exploring new places. She found purpose and enjoyment in her work at Edward Jones Investments, particularly loving the relationships she built with clients over the years. Her greatest pride in life were her children, who she raised on her own following the premature death of their father. After raising her children in the Portland area, Laura relocated to Astoria in 2013. Laura will be missed for her witty sense of humor, thoughtfulness, and caring for others.
Laura is survived by her daughter, Meagan Bies (Mick) of Rochester, Minnesota and son, David O’Donovan, of Portland, Oregon. She is preceded in death by her parents; brother, Stephen; and daughter, Molly.
Laura’s family will celebrate her life in a private ceremony. Those wishing to honor her, please consider a donation in Laura’s name to The Senior Dog Rescue of Oregon.
