Lauren Olivia Dahl, 36 |
Lauren Olivia Dahl (Payleitner) was adorned her angel wings on Friday, Jan. 18, 2019, at the age of 36, surrounded by her family. A memorial mass will be held on Friday, Jan. 25, 2019, at 12:30 p.m. at St.
Maryís Visitation Parish, 1260 Church St., Elm Grove. A visitation will take place on Friday at the church from 11 a.m. until the time of service. Lauren was instrumental in the conception of the All Childrenís Playground, so in lieu of flowers, memorials to Marianne for a Legacy Bench in Laurenís honor at the Cedarburg All Childrenís Playground are appreciated.
Without speaking a word, Lauren spoke volumes. She inspired many to understand and value the beauty of people with disabilities, and enriched all those she encountered. Lauren loved being around her friends with and without disabilities, parties, music, balloons, swimming, fireworks, lights, sunshine, shopping and travel.
Though her disabilities were many, her ability to love was far greater.
Special thanks to Laurenís supportive caregivers, nurses, therapists, teachers, Alpha Homes and Zilber Family Hospice. Lauren is survived by her loving mother, Marianne Payleitner; newly found sister, Renee (Dejan) Ristic; grandmother, Patricia Payleitner; godmother and aunt, Kathleen Fleming; uncle, Michael (Toni) Payleitner; and Aunt, Patti (Tim) Panfil; cousins: Melissa and A.J. Fleming and Crista (Ryan) Slade; nieces and nephew, Stella, Marijka, Mirenza and Marko; and special longtime friends, Lynn Drumm, Melissa Fry, Darlayne Coughlin and Falon Pape.
Further survived by other relatives and friends.
She is preceded in death by her father James Dahl; grandfather, Norman Payleitner; grandmother, Marion Dahl; uncle and godfather, Bill Fleming; and aunt, Janet Ruddy.
