She was born April 4, 1964, to Dean and Myrna (Swenson) Lauderbaugh in Bemidji. She grew up in Centerville, Minn., graduating from Centennial High School in Circle Pines, Minn. She worked at various jobs before working as a paraprofessional for special education students and Centerville Elementary in Centerville, eventually moving to the Centennial Middle School. She worked there until a year and a half ago and left due to health complications. She loved being and working with children. She also loved riding horses, gardening, her dogs, deer hunting, fishing, camping and being in the outdoors. Her greatest accomplishments, however, were raising her two daughters.

She is survived by her daughters, Tanya Schminkey of Ham Lake, Minn., and Katie (Matt) Olsen of Cambridge, Minn.; parents of Centerville; brothers, Randy Lauderbaugh of Bemidji, Edward Lauderbaugh of Lino Lakes, Minn., Roger (Loreal) Lauderbaugh of Bemidji; and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
