Lauretta Frances Lemay Myers, aka “Honey,” age 92, passed away peacefully on August 22, 2018, at Ebeid Hospice following a brief illness. She was born November 11, 1925, to Raymond and Laura Lemay in Toledo. Lauretta was a lifelong resident of Toledo’s Point Place community. She met her husband, John, at a roller rink and the rest is history. Married 73 years, they were always very happy. Lauretta and John had a trailer on Silver Lake in Brooklyn, Michigan, and spent much of their time there for years. They were known as the snowbirds in Florida as they spent their winters in Apollo Beach, near Tampa, for 26 years. Since October 2016, Lauretta resided at Vibrant Life Senior Living in Temperance, Michigan. Lauretta worked at Overland (Jeep) during the War. She was considered a “Rosie Riveter.” She worked at General Mills, Allied Food, KMart, and finally Food Town as a meat wrapper for 25 years. She sometimes worked with her son, John, who was a meat cutter. Lauretta loved antiques and owned two antique stores in the 1960s. One shop was called “Little Treasure Island.” Lauretta’s nickname for over 50 years was “Honey,” given to her by her oldest grandson. Her hobbies included fishing, ceramics, and scrapbooking with her daughter, Sandra. She is survived by her son, John (Betsy) Myers; daughter, Sandra Kregel; grandchildren, Billy (Andrea) Seyfried, Kelly Seyfried, Michael (Stacie) Kregel, Melanie (Rick) Flores, and John Myers III; great-grandchildren, Alec Szabo, Zoe, Lia, Zane and Raiden Flores, Alexis Seyfried, Taylor, Tannar, Tucker, Lilly and Charlotte Kregel; brother, Charles (Narda) and Raymond Lemay; sister, Linda Waltermire; stepbrothers and stepsister; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, John; son-in-law, Michael Kregel, and sisters, Rosemary, Virginia and Olive. A memorial visitation will be held September 5, from 4 to 7 p.m., at David R. Jasin-Hoening Funeral Home, 5300 North Summit Street, Toledo.
