Andrea C. Dozhier, 27, Grand Forks, ND, died Sunday, March 4, 2018 in Grand Forks.

Andrea Christine Laughlin was born May 19, 1990 in Grand Forks, the daughter of Tom and Jule (Pokrzywinski) Laughlin. She was raised in Grand Forks and graduated from Red River High School in 2008, then attended UND.

Andrea married her high school sweetheart, Andrew Dozhier, on June 4, 2011. Andrea's greatest joy in life came from time spent raising and nurturing their two beautiful daughters Madisyn Kate & Myla Frances. Her girls loved many wonderful things about Andrea, especially her good night kisses & hugs. They will always remember her saying "Have a good day, make good choices, and I love you," every day when she dropped them off at school. Andrew was deployed three times during their marriage and each time Andrea proved to be a devoted military wife and mother. Her entire family and role as a mother were the most important things to her. This is where she drew her strength and left her legacy.
