Our precious mother & grandma, Laura Burgess Lick, 98, passed away peacefully, on Saturday, August 26, 2023. Born on July 11, 1925, she devoted her life to her family. Mom was a gifted artist and enjoyed making the world a more beautiful place, whether it was her cheerful gardens or an encouraging smile or word. She was a woman of quiet goodness.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband of 53 years, George Mackay Lick. She was the youngest daughter of the late Walter C. (Florence Walker) Burgess of Ripley, NY. Also, preceded were her two sisters, Marie (Ralph) McCutcheon and Jean (Charles) Schell of Belleville, Michigan. She is survived by her daughter, Susan (Daniel) Chase of Girard, PA. Two grandchildren, Brian (Stephanie) Chase of Girard, PA and Kelly (Robert) Misevski of Orchard Park, NY. Four great-grandchildren; Morgan Chase, Kayla, Owen and Makenna Misevski.
