Laura Angell Higgs - Obituary


aura Angell Higgs was set free at age 45, on September 25th after a life of giving all that she had, to all that she loved. Laura was born in Maryland in 1977 with a spirit ready to save the world. Her love for others was crafted by hand, for each individual, large and small. She had fire in her heart for her friends and family, and created suns for her children. To try to put into words the level of determination and passion Laura had, would be a task that even angels would struggle with on their best days. 1994 is the year that she fell deeper into her love for hair and buckled down into her classwork. With inspiration in her heart and music in her ears, she started down a path to a career in cosmetology. She truly believed in everyone having the opportunity to express themselves through art, color, and style. Her personal style was witchy and black. Her hair often kept in her natural color, black, with streaks of her favorite color; purple. Even her hazel eyes, which often seemed to gleam a beautiful green, had black specs that looked like a constellation in her left eye. She was undoubtedly one of the most unique women to ever walk this planet. Cosmetology allowed her to work with lifelong friends and even her own sister. She then got to open her own shop “Vintage Hairworks”. Her talent was recognized by anyone lucky enough to see and/or watch her work. When she wasn’t deep into her craft, she was making bonfires, hanging out at the racetrack, playing games, reading tarot cards, building ponds, piecing together puzzles, listening to every song on iTunes or any band who played at HammerJacks, and planning for the next Halloween. Along with caring for scorpions, salt water fish, koi, frogs, turtles, snakes, cats, and dogs. But mostly, she played with her children and worked to create a space where any friend could come and feel that her home, is their home. No matter the trouble, no matter the time, no matter what anyone else thought of you; she would open her doors and welcome you. In her eyes, every life mattered, even the ones others had given up on. She is now survived by her Daughter Jade Elizabeth, her eldest son Vincent Nicholas, her youngest son Jayvin Anthony, her sister Jessica Angell Rodriguez, her father Raymond Higgs, and her mother Sharon Higgs. Have fun exploring, Mom. We love you unconditionally and know that you are with us. You are finally free to be the guardian angel that you were always meant to be. With all the music, cars, and animals you could ask for, with all the people that you lost and love. Free to be yourself. Forever and Always. Friends are invited to celebrate Laura’s life on Monday, October 10 from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 pm at the Kalas Funeral Home & Crematory, 2973 Solomons Island Rd., Edgewater, MD.
