Bonnie L. Lauber, age 74, of Toledo, passed away on January 3, 2019 after a courageous battle with COPD/Emphysema.
   Born on May 19, 1944 in Leechburg, Pennsylvania to Ralph ‘Sam’ and Irene (Simko) Blake, Bonnie grew up learning from her accomplished Mom, the arts of cooking, baking and sewing. After graduating from Leechburg High School, she went on to graduate from the Humboldt Institute in Minnesota. Bonnie worked her way up as a Writer at the Pentagon, before raising kids and later returning to work as an Office Assistant at Bull Run and later Hutchison Elementary School in Virginia.  There she got to do what she loved most, work with kids.
  An avid crafter and master seamstress, Bonnie took great pride in making things for family and friends. She loved baking, gardening, the Christmas season, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Hallmark Channel (for the happy endings).
  Bonnie was preceded in death by her parents, and brother Ralph Blake. She will be dearly missed by her loving husband of 50 years, Robert ‘Bob’ Lauber; son, Brian (Claudia Vercellotti) Lauber; daughter, Annette (Michael) Basham; grandchildren, Jessica, Kevin and David; sister, Judy (Jim) Baldwin; brother, Robert Blake; many cousins, nephews/nieces and great nephews/nieces; especially those who shared so much of her later life, Brandon, Jared, Ashton, Kristen and Jessica Baldwin.
  The family will receive visitors on Saturday, January 12, 2019 starting at 11:00 a.m. at the W.K. Sujkowski & Son Funeral Home, 3838 Airport Hwy., Toledo, Ohio. The Life Celebration will begin at 2:00 p.m., officiated by Fr. Patrick Rohen, Captain, U.S. Army (retired).  
Memorial tributes may be directed to The Carcinoid Cancer Foundation, Inc. which was near and dear to Bonnie’s heart.
Bonnie also spent much of her energy in her last years encouraging smokers to quit now. She often said, "it would mean the world to me to save even one person from this suffering".

Dear Bob, Brian and Amy,
We send our thoughts and prayers to you.
During your Wauseon years Bonnie was always so active. She was over the top Brownie Leader so creative and helping so many little girls. Sports and music were other areas we spent many times together. She was a good friend.
She was a proud Mom. We send God’s Blessings to you.
Jim and Dee Spiess and Family

Please accept my condolences. I was a classmate of Bonnie's at Leechburg High School Class of 1962. I remember her as a thoughtful kind person with a great smile. Read her obituary and applaud her for sharing her wisdom and her pain.

I have fond memories of Bonnie while working together through music boosters in Wauseon. She taught me a lot and always had such a beautiful smile. My deepest sympathy to Bob, Amy and Brian. She will surely be missed.
