Laura Ann Martin

May 12, 1963 — May 7, 2023

Manchester, NH

Laura Ann (Knowles) Martin, 59, of Manchester, passed away on May 7, 2023, at the Hillsborough County Nursing Home in Goffstown.

She was born in Gloucester, MA on May 12, 1963, to the late James, Sr. and Virginia (Cooper) Knowles. Laura was a devoted caregiver, working for Visiting Angels. Volunteerism was a big part of her life, as she spent many years helping out at New Horizons Soup Kitchen, various churches, local animal shelters, and devoted her time to assisting those in need. She recently achieved 34 years of sobriety and helped others on their path to recovery by sponsoring and mentoring them. Visitors were always welcome in her home. They would be met with genuine happiness, hospitality, and the traditional, " Hey, how ya doing!" 

She is survived by her only son, Dylan Knowles of Manchester, and his partner Maya Wilson of Concord; her daughter, Amanda Knowles of Gloucester, MA; a brother, James Knowles, Jr. of Gloucester, MA; and cousins. She is also survived by her beloved dog, Bailey.

A memorial gathering will take place at Phaneuf Funeral Homes and Crematorium, 243 Hanover St, Manchester on Saturday, May 20th from 10:00 AM to Noon with a celebration of her life to follow in the funeral home chapel at Noon.
