Barbara Lauzon

November 6, 1941July 22, 2020

Barbara Lauzon, 78, of Ann Arbor, Michigan passed away peacefully surrounded by family on July 22, 2020.

She was born on November 6, 1941 in Ann Arbor to Fred and Joyce Weber. She graduated from Ann Arbor High School in 1959 and earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Western Michigan University in 1964. She taught high school business classes for several years before marrying Fred Lauzon and raising their son Mark in Dexter, Michigan. She was the type of mom that everyone knew and loved, always involved in Mark’s school activities and sports. In 2000, she moved from Dexter to Laurel Gardens where she quickly became involved in the community by serving on the beautification and finance committees.

Barb was an accomplished needlepoint artist and stitched pillows, ornaments, and pictures. She was an avid reader who found joy in the perfect book. She liked going out to dinner with friends, taking long walks, and enjoying sunny days. She traveled to places like the Galapagos Islands, Russia, England, Germany, and Greenland. She was a long-time volunteer at the Ann Arbor Thrift Shop and past member of the Ann Arbor City Club. She was most proud of her grandchildren, Emily and Josh, and was a frequent spectator (and cheerleader) at all their cross country and track meets. She was so loved by her family and friends. She will be missed.

Barb is survived by her son Mark (Amy) Lauzon, grandchildren Emily and Josh, sisters Shirley (Jerry) Fisher and Judy (John) Jambor, along with nieces and nephews Mike, Tracy, Sherry and Craig and their families. A private graveside ceremony will take place at Bethlehem Cemetery in Ann Arbor.

Donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association or the Ann Arbor Thrift Shop in her honor.

The family wishes to send a special thank you to Balfour Senior Living, Careline Hospice and Reverend Melissa Anne Rogers for their care and compassion.

Barb was a wonderful friend and I will miss her. I have so many memories of Barb. We both lived at Laurel Gardens. Barb would surprise my husband John with a batch of chocolate chip cookies every once and awhile.
Barb and I spent time at Crystal Lake ,many times ,throughout the years. We visited Judy Wallace’s cottage along with Cathy Anderson.
Barb and I saw many theater productions together at the Encore Theater.
I could go on and on about my memories of Barb.

Having you as a big sister had lots of advantages. Sure, you could be a bit bossy, but you helped me out so many times with your good advice. You were always willing to help out when needed...like when I bleached my hair for that natural blond look and it came out orange. You came home from Western to dye it so I could at least go out in public again. We had such fun hanging out with our kids when they were little...going to parks or shopping or distracting them while we watched our favorite soap opera!
We have had a great life...we three sisters have had the luxury of always being there for each other. We miss you already. Love you...Sniks

I loved having dinner together before stitching and then stitching with her and our ANG group. She turned me on to green olives on cheeseburgers and I will think of her every time I have one. She was witty and fun! She always gave encouragement. She was a wonderful stitcher. I will miss her immensely!

Aunt Barb always had a way with children, especially mine. When Eric was little he wouldn't just sit on anyone's lap, but he would always sit with Aunt Barb. Her warmth, humor, and beautiful smile was always so comforting to my boys. I love and miss you Aunt Barb but these memories will always make my heart smile.
