Laura Latowski, died Friday, at age 92. Laura was born in Kalamazoo, Michigan to Joseph and Mary (Jantosh) Skwarski.
Laura graduated from Kalamazoo Central High School and received a teaching certificate from Western Michigan University. She worked for Oldsmobile for 35 years.
She is survived by her husband and love of her life, Dan Latowski. Laura and Dan lived on a farm in Charlotte most of their lives and spent some time in Williamston and Florida. They were very proud of being married for 71 years!
Much to the enjoyment of her family, Laura often told of a bicycle trip she took with a friend from Michigan to Texas and their adventures along the way! Laura was often at the local library looking up interesting facts, researching investments, and reading news articles. She also stayed in contact with her Polish relatives in Poland. She loved spending time with all the nieces and nephews. She always had fun stories to tell at holiday gatherings and will be greatly missed.
Laura was preceded in death by her parents; brothers John Niemczyk, Benjamin Skwarski, Amiel Swartz, and Frank Skwarski; and sisters, Bernice Ameroso, and Wanda Reeves.
Laura is survived by her loving family; Mary and Larry Latowski, Kary and Lyle Lucas, Julie and Dave Priebe, Linda Fields, Tracy and Joe Keegan, Lori and Mike Grover, Lisa and Dieter Korte, Andy Latowski, Kathy Belanger and John Reister and great-nieces and nephews.
