Our beautiful mother began her journey in Poteet, Texas. As a young adult, she then moved to Chicago where she met and then married the love of her life: Abelardo Duran on February 28, 1959. Out of their love for each other she became a mother of three – Jesse, Diane, and Diana . Her favorite past-time was spending time with her family and friends, and especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Her hobbies were cooking, sewing, quilting, arts and crafts, and talking on the telephone. She was greatly loved and will be dearly missed. www.schroederlauer.com
