Lauren Ashley Nicole Hugelmaier, 29, of Raleigh, passed away Friday, September 1, 2017. She was born on June 9, 1988, in Los Angeles County, CA.

Lauren was an active member of Hope Lutheran Church where she loved working with the Children’s and Youth Ministries. She was a 2007 graduate of Swain County High School and later graduated from Appalachian State University. Lauren could always be heard saying that her nephews were one of the most important parts of her life and that she was one proud “auntie nini” followed closely by her love for her special fur baby, Cooper Hugelmaier. She was an Auditor with Quintiles, but one of her passions was her personal business with Scentsy. Lauren was always full of life and her big smile will be greatly missed by everyone she knew.
