Laura Fetto Pollard
July 3, 2007
Laura Fetto Pollard passed away on Saturday June 30, 2007.
Laura was born in New York on August 12, 1957 and moved to California in 1960. The daughter of a Hollywood actor, she grew up in the San Fernando Valley of Southern California. She attended UCLA where she not only earned Bachelor’s degrees in both Spanish and Linguistics, but achieved athletic success as the head song-girl (dance team leader) for the Bruins dance team.
After graduation she began a career as a flight attendant where she brightened many travelers’ days with her beauty, warmth and humor. Laura married the love of her life, John Pollard in 1987 in Park City, Utah. In 1998, Laura and John were blessed by the birth of their son, John Charles Pollard, affectionately known as ‘JC.’ Being JCs mother was Laura’s greatest joy.
Laura was incredibly giving to the Park City community, teaching aerobics and spending countless hours volunteering for many organizations such as Friends of the Animals and the Parent Teacher Organization of JC’s elementary school. She was proud to be JC’s room mother every year he attended school. Laura’s aerobics students had a charming but relentless motivator.
Laura loved the outdoors; she spent many mornings walking her dogs in Round Valley. No matter what she was involved in, she gave her all. She was bright, cheerful, giving, and someone who was always available for friends and family in need.
Laura will be remembered as a wonderful loving mother, wife, inspiration and friend to all, both human and animal. Our lives will never be the same without her. She will live on in the hearts of friends and family because of her love, laughter, enthusiasm and kindness. We thank her for the joy she brought to our lives — she made our lives richer beyond measure.
