Laurethe Amalie Paul-Grønbaum, 72, of Coral Gables, Florida, died on March 9, 1995, of congestive heart failure at Beth Israel hospital.  Born in Copenhagen, Denmark, she was the daughter of Henri and Beatrice Côté-Paul.

Raised in Copenhagen, Laurethe studied at the University of Aalborg, and was graduated with a degree in business.  At the age of 19, her family escaped to nearby Malmö, Sweden, after the German Army occupied the Kingdom of Denmark.  In Sweden, Laurethe met and eventually married Danish Naval officer Hans Meier-Grønbaum, and they subsequently settled in Frederickshavn, a suburb of Copenhagen.  There, they operated several businesses, including a jewelry shop and a konditori.  After the death of her husband, she lived in Tel Aviv, Israel and Coral Gables, Florida.

Surviving are two sons, Jens Grønbaum of Tel Aviv, Israel, and Ryzcard Grøbaum of Nakhsholim, Israel; and three daughters, Nora Grønbaum-Blair of Coral Gables, Florida, Elizabethe Grønbaum-Sczeczymbinskii (Spears) of Tel Aviv, Israel and Tallahassee, Florida, and Miriam Grønbaum-Lifshitz, of Eilat, Israel.

She was interred in Adat Ami mausoleum in Coral Gables, Florida.
