Laura Corbett-Hurston passed away April 3, 2024, at the age of 71. Laura was a resident of Covington, Louisiana but was born in Fitchburg Massachusetts and lived most of her life in Middleboro Massachusetts. She was born to Paul Kujanpaa and Ethel Kujanpaa on August 16, 1952. 

She is preceded in death by her father Paul Kujanpaa and her first husband James L. Corbett Jr.

Laura was a humble, joyful servant of God. Over the years she was a member of West Bridgewater Baptist Church, First Congregational Church of Middleboro, Central Congregational Church of Middleboro in Massachusetts and most recently Church of The King in Mandeville, Louisiana. She also taught Sunday school and was involved in youth programs throughout her life. Laura lived her faith in words, deeds, and actions throughout her life and, consequently, touched many people with her presence.

Laura was also known and loved by her many clients and coworkers as a beautician and hairdresser.  She was the co-owner of Added Attractions Haircare in Middleboro Massachusetts where she truly enjoyed going to work every day and was blessed to have her close friends Jeanne Freitas and Michelle Rijo Gullbrants as her business partners.

 In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The ALS Association in memory of Mrs. Laura Corbett-Hurston at donate.als.org.  Every 90 minutes, someone is diagnosed with the disease and someone passes away from it. This fatal disease can strike anyone at any time. It takes away the freedom to walk, to talk, to run and dance. To laugh. To hug. To eat. To breathe. We fight to give that independence back – and help empower people to live life to the fullest. The ALS Association leads the way in global research and helps 30,000 Americans living with ALS. Your gift today will help find a cure for ALS, while providing care and support to families right here in your community.
