Laura Bishop Legeai

Laura Bishop Legeai, age 65, of Orlando, passed away peacefully on Friday, January 28th, 2022 after a hard-fought battle with Stomach Cancer. She was born in Baton Rouge, LA, the daughter of the late Jackie (Myers) and William Edward Bishop. 

A prayer warrior, she loved Jesus with her whole heart and was an example to anyone who knew her of a godly and generous woman. Her strength and grace were unmatched; she was thankful for each and every day with her feet firmly rooted in her unwavering faith. 

She delighted in her grandchildren and time spent with her dearest friends and family. Many considered her a best friend and confidant - the one to call for advice, the one to trust with your biggest secrets. She loved without reserve or judgment. 

Laura is survived by her husband of 44 years, James J. Legeai, Jr. (Jay) of Orlando; two daughters, Laura “Michelle” (Jeremy) Hill of Madison, MS, Elise Legeai of Orlando; two sons James (Brittany) Legeai of Pflugeville, TX, Steven (Catherine) Legeai of Thomasville, GA; two sisters, Susan Kees of Daphne, AL, Deborah Johnson of Greenwell Springs, LA; brother, Terry Bishop of Baton Rouge, LA; and 5 grandchildren.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 10:30 AM on Saturday, February 5th, 2022 in the Henry Chapel at First Baptist Church of Orlando in Orlando, FL.

Donations can be made to World Vision or Donate Life Florida.

Her children stand and bless her; Her husband praises her. There are many virtuous and capable women in the world, but you surpass them all! Charm is deceptive, and beauty does not last; but a woman who fears the Lord will be greatly praised. Reward her for all she has done. Let her deeds publicly declare her praise.  ~ Proverbs 31:28-31

Laura was beautiful inside and out. A woman of great character. A fact attested to by the verse in Proverbs you have chosen. She was a joy to know. Her faith was vibrant and contagious. My prayers are that God will be a tangible comfort to you in the midst of you grief. I thank God that we do not sorrow as others sorrow for there is surely a resurrection. I am sure you all will see Laura again.
