Laura Bird Townley is a registered nurse at the Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center. She shot to fame when she began dating the former NASCAR driver, John Wes Townley. Unfortunately, her boyfriend-turned-husband passed away on 2 October 2021 after being shot near the Five Points Arena in Athens, Georgia.
Laura Bird Townley is originally from Florence, South Carolina. She is American by nationality and belongs to the Caucasian ethnicity. After graduating from The King’s Academy, she later earned a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Augusta University.
Net Worth, Salary, and Income
The ex-wife of late John Wes Townley is a registered nurse currently working at the Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center. There is nothing much to talk about Laura’s profession, but her late husband, John Wes Townley, was an American stock car racing driver.
The Georgia native started his racing career with the American Speed Association before making his NASCAR debut in 2008 when he drove for RAB Racing in three races. He went on to participate for eight seasons, although on-track incidents marred his career for most of them.
John Wes Townley competed in the Xfinity Series for 76 races, with the best finish of 13th, but he was much more successful in the Truck Series, finishing ninth in the 2015 standings. He won his first and only national series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway in the same year.
At Daytona International Speedway, he won two races in the ARCA Menards Series. In 2017, the 31-year-old declared his retirement from motorsport.
According to Glassdoor, the typical salary of a registered nurse in the US ranges from $65k to $120k per year. So, Laura’s salary highly lies between the range as mentioned earlier. Meanwhile, her ex-husband, John, was worth millions of dollars at the time of his death.
Married, Husband, and Children
Laura first met John on a dating app, ‘Match’ and instantly hit it off after meeting at a local Mexican restaurant. The couple reportedly got engaged in 2016. Two years later, they tied the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony in the presence of family and close friends.
However, their marriage was formally dissolved just days before John was shot to death by his ex-wife, Laura’s new lover, Zachary Anderson. Their divorce was finalized more than two years after the former NASCAR driver was charged with battery-family violence.

There’s not much information about Laura online other than her profession. Her mother’s name is Lisa Bird. She loves her grandparents a lot, and she has a sister named Ashley Elizabeth.
Body Measurements: Height and Weight
