Who was Lauri Ann West?
Lauri Ann West
July 25, 1957 – March 18, 1966
Lauri was the daughter of Annetta and James West. She fell while playing on the playground on this property and died three days later. As a third grader, Lauri loved to read, dance and play the flute. This Community Center was built in her memory with donations from her family, many friends and O’Hara Township.
Lauri’s family hopes that this Community Center will enhance the community for many years to come.
