Obituary for Demaris C. Lasch

On May 10th, 2021, Demaris C. Lasch, of Fredonia, passed away after a long, full, life. She was 95 years old.
She was born in Buffalo NY on August 30th, 1925. The daughter of George C. Carlin and Maybelle (Wade) Carlin.
She was educated in Buffalo schools and after graduation took a job as a Long-Distance Operator for New York Telephone. During this period of her life, she met and married her husband of sixty-eight years, Herman “Bob” Lasch. They were wed on November 25th, 1948.
In 1953 she left New York Telephone and moved with her husband to the Dunkirk-Fredonia area. She would commit the rest of her life to being the best wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend and caregiver she possible could.
She had a life-long love of books, music, theater, history, and design. But she will be remembered as a loving, kind, and generous person, who touched others with her quiet ways.
