PERU — Lauren Noel Bashore, 17, Peru, passed away on Friday, July 11, 2014.
Lauren came to us on March 5, 1997. From birth, her joy for life was always apparent. Her two passions were the Lewis Cass show choir and the Future Farmers of America. Her election as the future Vice President of the Lewis Cass FFA was a true source of pride.
2014 was a great year for Lauren. Her first job, her driver’s license and the upcoming start of her senior year, all had her eager for the years to come. Lauren loved people and knew no stranger. She was an awesome daughter, sister and friend.
She is survived by her mother and father, Amanda Bashore and Kenny Licklider; sisters, Annie Bashore, Rita Bashore and Clara Licklider; siblings, Stacie, Brandon, and Matt Bashore, Tayler and K.C. Licklider; grandparents, Richard and Margaret Lukas, and Norma Jean Licklider; aunts and uncles, Mary, Tony, Mimi and Angel, Joan and Gilbert, Paul and Geni, Joe and Juliet, Cindy and Joe; cousins, Abby, Clark, Jake, Eric, Sarah, Kaela, Laura, Mikey, Critter, Emmy, Hannah, Sammy, Gabe, Joe, Katrina and Xavier.
