Laura Davidson Krzeski

Celebration of Life Service: 1:00 p.m., Thursday, December 30, 2021

Location: Weymouth Funeral Home

Laura Davidson Krzeski, 61, passed away peacefully at her home in Newport News, VA on December 21, 2021.  Laura loved deeply, with her family and her students as her focus.  Her dedication to both was so apparent in everything she did.

She was born in Wilmington, DE, and grew up in Bedford, VA.  She received her degree in Education from Ferrum College, where she also met her husband, Charlie.  She moved to Newport News when she got married, making her home there and raising her family.

Laura loved teaching, and as an elementary school teacher made a lasting impact on all the children’s lives she touched.  She taught in the Newport News Public School System for over 29 years and retired this year from Discovery STEM Academy.  Most recently she was awarded Teacher of the Year, an honor she treasured.

Laura will be remembered as a devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister, grandmother, teacher and friend.  She was selfless in every possible way, always giving to others before herself.  Laura had such a wonderful, funny and witty personality, and could always bring a smile to your face.  Affectionately called “Mimi” by her grandchildren, her greatest joy was being a Grandmother.  She loved fostering their imagination, whether cooking in their pretend kitchen or snuggling to read books together.

Laura is survived by her devoted husband of 38 years, Charlie; her children: Ashley Krzeski Wells (Akeem), and Tyler Krzeski; and her adored grandchildren: Tristan Noah Wells and Layla Wells. She is also survived by her mother, Carolyn Joy Davidson and sisters, Lisa Harvel (Calvin) and Jennifer Moelchert.  She was preceded in death by her father, Joseph M. Davidson, Jr.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at 1:00 p.m. Thursday, December 30, 2021 at Weymouth Funeral Home by Rev. David Willis of Olivet Christian Church. Masks are required.  In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Discovery STEM Academy, 1712 Chestnut Ave, Newport News, VA 23607, or the Peninsula SPCA, 523 J Clyde Morris Blvd, Newport News, VA 23601, peninsulaspca.org.

I'm so sorry to see this, and my thoughts go out to Joy, Lisa, Jennifer and Charlie for this loss. Reading this gave a wonderful picture of Laura's life and energy, and I'm sure her grandfather Allen would be proud of her for both getting the Teacher of the Year award, and carrying on the tradition of spending quality time with grandchildren! May that carry forward with Ashley.

I remember Mrs. Krezski being one of the 1st people to welcome me aboard at DSA as I started my behavior counselor position. Her dedication to her students, not just to their learning but their overall well being was certainly unmatched. Her offers to show up for students outside of school and ensuring that students had what they needed were also unmatched. I’m forever grateful for her support and send my deepest condolences to your family.
