Beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother passed away peacefully on Saturday, June 1, 2019. She was 65 years old. Barbara Jane Laufer was born on April 26, 1954 in Saginaw, Michigan, to the late Donald L. and Phillis G. (Zirkle) Laufer. She was a proud 1972 graduate of Saginaw High School. She married Kenneth W. Cramer on September 24, 1974 in Saginaw; he survives her. Barb enjoyed playing Bingo, going to the casino and attending hockey games. She also enjoyed sewing, especially goose clothing. Above all, Barb loved and cherished her family. She had an amazing laugh, an excellent sense of humor, and would often become the life of any family gatherings. Barb will forever be remembered for her kindness, compassion and selflessness to all; she truly put others before herself.
