Helen Patricia Lauer Obituary

from san diego, Pennsylvania, United States


Helen Patricia LauerYorkHelen Patricia Lauer died peacefully on the morning of July 19, 2017 at Spirittrust Lutheran Home. She was the loving wife of Ernest Clayton Lauer to whom she'd been married for sixty-four years at the time of his death in 2016. Mrs. Lauer, known to friends and family as Patsy, was born on December 3, 1931. She was the daughter of the late John Kenneth Lindemuth and Mary Kathryn DeHuff Lindemuth; and sister to the late Mary Suzanne Braun, twelve years her junior and dearly loved by her big sister Patsy. Mrs. Lauer graduated from William Penn Senior High School in 1949. After graduation, she worked as a dental hygienist for the late Dr. John Welsh and began an epistolary relationship with her fellow graduate and next-door neighbor, Ernie Lauer, who had enlisted in the Marine Corps and was serving in the Korean War. Through the mail, their relationship turned to love and they were married when Ernie returned to the states in 1952. Patsy Lauer was a devoted wife and a loving mother, grandmother and great-mother. In addition to her husband, Ernie, Mrs. Lauer is survived by her daughters, Sharon Lauer and her husband, Jerome Joseph of Black Rock, CT; M'Liss Byrnes and her husband, Michael Byrnes of York; granddaughter, Rachel Kelley and her husband, Matthew Kelley and daughter, Vivian of Fairfield, CT; grandson, Zachary Miller, Giselle Alba and their children, Brady and Payton of Los Angeles, CA; and grandsons, Patrick Byrnes and his wife, Cassie of York and Sean Byrnes of San Diego, CA. Mrs. Lauer dedicated her life to making a home for her husband and children and later enjoying her grandchildren to the full extent of imagination; their home was an informal sleep-away camp to out-of town grandchildren, Rachel and Zachary, and daycamper cousins for close to a decade. Mrs. Lauer did find time for volunteer work once her daughters grew up, serving both at St. Paul's nursery school and St Joseph School, which her younger grandsons Patrick and Sean attended. A private gathering for family and friends will be held, and In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Spirittrust Lutheran Home, Sprenkle Village KefferFH.com
