Lora Schaub

Young Lora Schaub died of heat stroke on July 30, 1919. She had been overtaken by heat just a few days before her death. Lora (whose first name was sometimes spelled Laura) was only eleven years old at the time of her death. Her parents were William and Augusta Schaub. It is hard to imagine the grief they must have felt at losing a child at such a young age. Lora A. Schaub is buried at Sandusky's Oakland Cemetery. A dove adorns her tombstone.

Valentines which were given to Lora Schaub by her classmates in elementary school are pictured at the Sandusky History website.
