Born in Akron on January 26, 1926, to the late John & Sophia Lauck, mom was the fourteenth of fifteen children. Mom married Dad on August 6, 1949 and together they raised 5 daughters and were the loving grandparents of 16 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren with two on the way. Her daughters were the center of her universe. Mom was a wonderful homemaker, an excellent cook & baker, and loved to sew blankets for everyone.
