Marguerite Laws, 93, of Bel Air, Md., passed into the arms of her Lord and Savior, Thursday, March 19, 2020, at the Senator Bob Hooper House Hospice in Forest Hill, Md.

She was born in Pisgah Forest and was raised by her beloved grandparents, George and Emma Jane Frady. She lived in Pisgah Forest until the passing of her husband in 2011. She was preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, Marcus Laws, and her daughter, Denise McCall.

She was a long-time church organist and pianist and played for more weddings and funerals than she could count. She was a member of Pisgah Forest Baptist Church until moving to Maryland, where she joined Towne Baptist Church.

She was a skilled seamstress and homemaker. She loved the mountains and called them her home. To the last, when asked where her home was, her answer always was, “the mountains of North Carolina.” They were her mountains, her people, and her home.

Survivors include her daughter, Marcia Dolores Whitmire and husband, Douglas, of Bel Air; one granddaughter, Elizabeth L. Lapointe and husband, Steven, of Bel Air; and one great-granddaughter, Sarah Elizabeth Lapointe, of Charlotte, N.C .; her sister, Sara Hug-gett, of Forest Grove, Ore; son-in-law, Ricky McCall, of Horse Shoe; and sister-in-law, Marie Laws, of Burnsville, N.C.
