Shirley Lauterbach went to Heaven to join her beloved husband, Arthur, on January 29, 2013.  She was born in Worcester, Massachusetts on May 25, 1912 and just recently celebrated her 100th birthday with a huge party and family reunion in Kentucky.  Shirley had many talents and interests including sewing, knitting, crocheting, ceramics, Bridge and other card games, music (especially the Polkas!), travel and spending time on New Smyrna Beach.  She traveled domestically and abroad for more than 20 years, with over 50 cruises to her credit, not to mention countless tours and self-explorations of the world's wonders.  Shirley is survived by her two daughters, Shirley and Patricia, three granddaughters, (one of which she raised), five great grandchildren and ten great great grandchildren.  She will be  buried at a later date beside Arthur in Cincinnati, OH where they spent many happy years together.

    Sheryl, our deepest sadness for your loss of Granny. All the years of working with you and hearing your stories of the two of you and meeting and talking to her numerous times was one of the highlights of my life. I will surely miss her.

    Dearest Goney:

    Thankfully, there is little left unsaid between us except that it was an honor and a privilege to share 52 loving years with you.

    I remember Christmas mornings,
    And betime parties ...and
    All your trips to vegas
    And to the Holy Land.
    Super granny we called you
    And worry wart sometimes
    Just couldnt think of what to say
    Till I laid down last night.
    Your 100th birthday
    I'll always hold dear
    Not just the smiles
    But your every tear
    As you talked with
    Marian, your lifelong friend
    And as you said good bye
    You knew it was the end.
    My heart just broke
    In silence I gazed
    So I'm greatful we had
    The September vacation days.
    i love you.

    I will always remember no matter what age I was that Goney would say, "watch crossing" when I had to cross the street. Sherry, you took wonderful care of Goney for the last 7 years!

You have given me so many dear and cherrished memories ,from beautiful Christmas's, to sleepovers with the beautiful Pinki nightlight to make me feel the warm glow of being in my grandma's house and waking up to the smell of coffee perking and your dear little voice saying "good morning honey" To extravigant Florida vacations .I'll always treasure our special thing of me brushing your soft hair to get rid of your head aches. You were certainly blessed my dear Goney to have family that loved you .Give Papa a kiss for me

    My heart goes out to you and your family, Sheryl. Granny was such a huge part of your life and so important to you and my heart breaks for you. Granny certainly lived a full and interesting life and she could not have wanted for more in how much you cherished her. You cared for her in her later years with such commitment and dedication that you need never wonder if you did enough or cared enough for Granny. Your love for her was unwavering as was hers for you. May Granny rest in peace and may you and your family find peace at this time.
    With Deepest Sympathy,

    Tracey and Paul.

    100 years were in your genes. That means there in ours too.
