Katie Tomczak turned 99 years young July 5, 2018. This year she was honored by being selected as the Grand Marshal of the 4th of July Parade in her home town of Ludington Michigan. The parade is something Katie looks forward to every year. She has lived in Ludington Michigan her whole life. Her positive influence and always smiling face is an inspiration to everyone that meets her. Grandma Katie, as she is referred to in Ludington, is a true inspiration and I am proud to call her my Grandma.
At a very young age it was always Ms. LaPorte’s passion to work with the elderly. She was a caregiver at a nursing home in high school and college and volunteered in senior centers and senior events held by the city in which she grew up. After graduation, Ms. LaPorte became a special education teacher for sixteen years.
She put her teaching career on the sidelines to raise two wonderful children, during which her passion for the elderly inspired her to start Easy Living Home Care in 2009. Ms. Laporte wanted to help people, especially seniors, find competent, qualified, and caring in-home care at reasonable rates.
Ms LaPorte takes an active role in conducting and managing all operations of her business. She is patient, compassionate and listens. Ms. Laporte is always available to her clients and staff.
In her spare time, Lori volunteers for the American Red Cross and Leashes of Love canine rescue organization.
