LAUERMAN Obituaries

Thomas Edward Lauerman, 79, passed away peacefully on December 7, 2003, at Nazareth House, surrounded by his children, family and friends. Tom was born in Hammond, Indiana on April 24, 1924. Before his senior year in high school his family moved to Youngstown, Ohio. Upon graduation he attended the University of Norte Dame. He moved to San Diego in the early 1950s and worked as a buyer in the aerospace industry. In 1958, he met his future wife, Ruth Beatrice Zak M.D. at a Friday Club gathering and they married the following year. Tom ' s life brought him many challenges, but also many rewards. While raising his three children in San Diego he opened up his home to kids who were less fortunate or needed a place to stay. The kids in the neighborhood always knew they could depend on Mr. Lau and in his later years he relied on their friendships in return. One of his greatest memories was the trip he took in 1999 to the Vatican where, sitting in the front row, he was able to attend a mass with the Pope. His priorities were his faith, his family and Notre Dame. He called himself "Luck Lauerman", but we were the lucky ones. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Tom was preceded in death by his wife, Ruth Beatrice Zak-Lauerman M.D. He will be truly missed by his son Thomas Edward Lauerman II and his wife Paula of Oregon, daughter Bettyann Bernhardt and her husband Paul and their children Sara Ann and Joseph Thomas, of San Diego and son Christopher Charles Lauerman and his wife Gina Murphy and their children Emily Ann and Zak Murphy; brothers James Lauerman, Indiana, David Lauerman, New York, and sister Mary Ballman, El Cajon. A Vigil will be held at Our Lady of Grace, 2766 Navajo Rd., El Cajon, Ca 92020 at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 11, 2003. A Funeral Mass will be held on Friday at Our Lady of Grace at 10:30 a.m. followed by graveside services at Holy Cross Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Sisters of Nazareth House, 6333 Rancho Mission Road, San Diego, Ca 92108.
