Mr and Mrs Jarrett were our neighbors on Sycamore St in the 1980's. They were always very kind and patient with us kids and used to give us a quarter to pull the weeds out of the cracks in their sidewalk. I remember Nona working at Von Maur and Lauren always walking/sitting/socializing at either the mall or at Hy-Vee. This October past I took my daughter to Lutheran Homes to trick or treat and came across Lauren and Nona sitting together smiling and handing out treats. I am so glad I got a chance to reintroduce myself and say "Hello" again. His response was "I am now 98 years old and my Nona is 96". They made an impact on my life that I will never forget. There are few like him and he will be missed. God bless.

I live near Rochester, Iowa. When I would walk in at Calvary and Lauren was greeting and he saw me he would say, “Hey Rochester!” I expect that’s what I’ll hear him say the first time he sees me in Heaven.
Praying for God’s peace for Nona and Family.

Lauren was the most funny likeable witty Christian. Lauren made almost every person he was a round laugh. He will be missed by many!!

My sympathy to the family of a great man or "toe-tickler" as my family called him. I always enjoyed visiting with him.

My deepest sympathies. Lauren was quite the character. I always enjoyed visiting when he came in the Hy-Vee to shop. His wife would go shopping and he sat on the bench be the greeter at the front door. Say hello to your brother for me. Rip… Julia
