Louise D. Lauer, of The Colony at St. Paul’s Senior Living Community, and formerly of Pittsburgh, quietly passed away in the early morning on July 8th. Her son, Bill, and daughter-in-law, Sue, were at her side. She was less than a year short of celebrating her 100th birthday.
In addition to Bill and Sue, Louise is survived by three grandchildren, Scott and Abby Kelly (and her husband Patrick) both of Mount Pleasant, SC, and Michael Yakimchuk and his three sons of Ottawa, Ontario. She was predeceased by her loving husband Bill, and her daughter, Conni.
The entire family could not be more grateful for the loving support of her close friends and the staff members of St Paul’s.
At her request, there will be no visitation. A Private Memorial Service will be held in the chapel of Shenango Valley Cemetery. In remembrance of Louise’s life, the family asks that any charitable donations be made to St. Paul’s Good Samaritan Fund, 339 E. Jamestown Road, Greenville. Arrangements have been entrusted to Loutzenhiser-Jordan Funeral Home and Cremation services, Inc. 366-368 S. Main St. Greenville.
Louise was a wonderful, gentle soul. It was my pleasure to know her. My condolences go out to her family.
Mary Ellen Bayuk, Colony Resident
I had the pleasure of knowing Louise through our church. I always enjoyed visiting with her and was saddened that for several years she was uncomfortable with my visits due to Covid. I had not seen her for quite awhile, and the last time I tried to call her I did not get an answer. I will miss our lively conversations and her pleasant personality. My sympathies to her family.
It was my honor to know Laura through church and St. Paul’s. She was a gentle sweet soul and will be missed.
Hi Bill, we were saddened when the Christmas Card we sent to Louise was returned this year. She remained a wonderful friend to us since she helped coordinate our wedding at First Presbyterian Church in July 1980. Your dad, Bill, lent me tools and a ladder when we moved into our first house (a fixer-upper in Ross Twp.). Your parents were great support to us from the beginning of our marriage and we will always appreciate that.
Our deepest condolences to you and your family with Louise’s passing.
