Obituary

Laura Waters Ziock, age 58, passed away Saturday December 19, 2015 at the University of Tennessee Medical Center.
Laura was born June 11, 1957, in New Haven Connecticut. She moved to the Oak Ridge area in 2005 from Livermore, California, and was most recently the co-owner of Quick Qut Quilts. Although an avid quilter, Laura's passion was books, particularly children's literature, and she had been the proud owner of the independent book store, Altamont Books.
Laura was a woman that chose to use her love, creativity, and intellect to be a dedicated mother-to Matthew and Jennifer, as well as any neighborhood child she took under her generous wing. She was a loving wife, friend, and life partner to Klaus-Peter. In the last several years her joy was multiplied in her role of devoted grandmother to Logan and Merrick.
Laura is survived by her husband Klaus-Peter Ziock; two children Jennifer Ziock-Price and her husband Matthew Price, and Matthew Ziock; two grandchildren Logan Price and Merrick Price; her mother Martha Dudley; two brothers Andy Waters and Hugh Waters; two sisters Carrie Waters and Anna Waters; and many nieces and nephews.
A Celebration of Laura's life will be held Wednesday December 23, at 2:00pm in the chapel of Martin Oak Ridge Funeral Home. The family will receive friends Wednesday December 23, 2015 from 1:00 to 2:00 pm, at the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Reading is Fundamental to continue Laura's tradition of sharing books and the love of reading with as many children as possible.
