Laurine Ekstrom Kingston

July 19, 1931 — March 7, 2024


Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, and Great Great-Grandmother. 

Heaven has welcomed with open arms, “The baby whisperer”. 

Surrounded by her family, Laurine peacefully left this world, in the very room where she delivered and welcomed many babies.

Born on July 19, 1931, to Ernie and Blenda Ekstrom. Laurine grew up in Salt Lake City and was a graduate of East High School. She furthered her education and received her Practical Nursing degree. After working in the surgical and pediatric units at several hospitals in the Salt Lake Valley, Laurine found her calling in life as a Midwife and Childbirth Educator. She was gifted with compassion, honesty and knowledge.

Laurine married Leon Kingston on August 15, 1953, and together they had six children- Brent, Joyce, Diane, Jenene, Grant and Elden, fifteen Grandchildren, twenty-five great grandchildren and one great-great granddaughter.  In their seventy years of marriage, together they made many memories in The Magic House on Redwood Road.

Survived by her husband and children, 2 brothers and 1 sister.

Greeted in heaven by parents, sister and 3 brothers.
