Laura Grace Roys, 84, of Avenue, MD passed away in her home on January 2, 2014, doing what she most loved, looking out on St. Patrick's Creek. She was born November 9, 1929 in Macon, GA to the late Glenn Branan Pace and Stella Grace Pace.

Laura was a graduate of Eastern High School in Washington, D.C. It was there that she met her beloved husband, Frank Edgar Roys. Together they spent 66 loving years of marriage. She filled her life as a homemaker, caretaker, devoted wife, loving mother, loving grandmother, great grandmother, and a true friend to many.

She was kind and always had a wonderful spirit, full of grace and gratitude, with the faith of an angel and patience of a saint. She took joy in caring for and serving those around her. Those lucky enough to be in her company were continuously reminded of her concern for their well-being and comfort.

Even in her last days she made it well known that her loved ones were absolutely loved. Laura's love for St. Mary's County was evident by her local, county, and state declaration for volunteering at St. Clements Museum, St. Clements One Hundred, American Legion, A Community That Shares (ACTS), Seventh District Optimist Club, and All Saints Episcopal Church-Oakley Parish. But her true passion was her family and friends and the times they had together.
