GOSHEN — Laura Adams Haney, 79, passed away Feb. 13, 2017, at her home surrounded by loving family members and supported by Goshen Home Care and Hospice.
She was born June 28, 1937, in Akron, to Leo and Mary Ball Adams.
On May 8, 1957, she married Leslie E. “Doc” or “Bugs” Haney in Muncie.
He survives along with two daughters, Susan M. Haney, M.D., Fort Collins, Colo., and Mary L. (spouse Mark) Brookins, New Paris; three sons: Daniel J. (spouse Kim) Haney, Shipshewana; Steve E. (spouse Michelle) Haney, Palmer, Alaska; and David L. (Roger Klorese) Haney, Seattle, Wash.; 13 grandchildren; two great-grandsons; two brothers, Howard W. (spouse Kathy) Adams, Houston, Texas; and Thomas W. (spouse Becky) Adams, Muncie; and a sister-in-law, Paula Adams, Elkhart.
She was preceded by her parents and a brother, Donald L. Adams.
A Goshen resident since 1962, she graduated from Beaver Dam High School in 1955 and Methodist School of Nursing, Indianapolis, in 1958. She worked as a registered nurse at Goshen Hospital and started home health care in Goshen.
She was a servant in her community. She was a Cub Scout den mother, 4-H leader and Saddle Club project leader. She gave numerous riding lessons to youth and adults and helped launch the Elkhart County 4-H horse camp that continues today. In more recent years she was integrally involved with the Loveway therapeutic riding program and devoted to training the horses. 
She helped feed countless people through the TGIW program at First United Methodist Church, always serving with a smile. She was the first person to greet new neighbors and bring cinnamon rolls or goodies to those who had a need. She was devoted to her family and especially enjoyed making gingerbread houses and cookies with her grandchildren. 
While she will be missed, her legacy of service will live on because of the impact she had on others.
The funeral service was Wednesday at First United Methodist Church, Goshen, officiated by Pastor Ed Fritz. Cremation followed the service. 
Burial will be at a later date in Akron Cemetery.
Memorials to Loveway, Bashor Home or First United Methodist Church.
