Laura Wooten, food service worker in Campus Dining, died March 24, 2019
Laura Wooten brightened my day when I visited Butler dining hall. She was such a constant, delightful present for my 4 years at Princeton. She will be missed and I am forever grateful to her for making my Princeton experience that much more special.
I’ve only had a few encounters with Laura, and each time she was always so full of life. She was, and still is, an inspiration.
Laura was sweet, positive, poised, and kind, a light to every student passing through the dining hall. I will always remember her smile.
What a loss. More of a fixture of my Princeton experience than many of my professors, Mrs. Wooten was full of wisdom and kindness that she freely shared with me and others. She had such a purposeful life and such energy—I knew her for years before she hinted that she was in her 90’s, and I was amazed. I certainly hope that I eventually become half the community member that she seemed to be throughout her life. My thoughts will be with her family.
