SPARTA - Lauranne Kathleen May (Dornik) went home to the Lord on Tuesday, Dec. 25, 2012. She was 50 years old.
Lauranne was born in Clifton to John and Lydia (Mehrig) Dornik. She lived in Sparta for the last 18 years and previously resided in Connecticut. Lauranne was a homemaker and volunteered with the vestry at St. Mary's Episcopal Church in Sparta. She devoted many years to the Sparta school system as a class mom and volunteer, but will best be remembered for her astonishing creativity. One small example of her creativity was painting the Spartan head on the football field for three years at Sparta High School.
Predeceasing her was a brother, John Jr. She is survived by her beloved husband of 26 years, Gary May; three sons, Taylor, Ryan and Dylan; and a sister, Jennifer.
Private arrangements are being handled by Goble Funeral Home, Sparta. A memorial Mass will be celebrated at 1 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 3, at St. Andrew's Church in Madison, Conn.
