Lauren Elizabeth (Hyre) Rodgers, age 32 of Petersburg, West Virginia passed away on Friday, February 7, 2020 in Petersburg.
Lauren was born on March 15, 1987 in Wheeling, West Virginia, and she was the daughter of Bruce Eugene “Icky” Hyre, Jr. and Mary Catherine “Mary Cay” (Mitolo) Hyre of Petersburg.
Surviving are her husband, Brandon L. Rodgers; five children, Alexis Elizabeth, Khloe Catherine, Kambrie Lucia, Adrien James and Kali Aleah; her parents, paternal grandmother, Helen Hyre all of Petersburg, several uncles, aunts, cousins and nephews.
Lauren was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, Bruce E. Hyre, Sr. and Twila Elizabeth (Rinehart) Hyre of Petersburg; Anthony and Lucia Rosa (Damiano) Mitolo of New Castle, PA; and one cousin, Jeremy Courtney of Morgantown, WV.
As a child, Lauren enjoyed roller skating at the family rink where she attended every party from the age of 2 when she learned to skate. She loved snow skiing, ice skating, hunting on the farm and the beach.
Because she was an only child, she was always surrounded by friends. Our home was usually filled with fun and laughter during her school years.
Lauren attended Petersburg High School and graduated from the American School in 2005. She completed her Maryland hours at the International School of Beauty in Cumberland, MD and needed 100 more hours for West Virginia which she planned to begin this spring. Lauren’s creativity enabled her to succeed in an Etsy business where she designed baby accessories. Lauren loved Netflix and Amazon Prime. But her passion was her children, and her family meant everything to her. She shared her love of horses with them and spent time enjoying the family farm.
