Lauren Michelle Bell was born on August 6, 1989, in Lebanon, Pa. She left this earth on August 18, 2022, 12 days after her 33rd birthday.
She is survived by her mother, Elizabeth (Kale) McGovern, dad Frank McGovern, and father, Robert Bell (Amber Martin ) Dunbar, PA. Brother Anthony Bell, and her beautiful daughter Nora Louise Bell, and her 2 loves of her life, sons Glenn Brian Haak III and James Richard Armstrong IV. Her boyfriend, James Richard Armstrong III, and her two lifelong best friends, Alyssa Aungst and Ashley Santana Speraw.
She was preceded in death by her biggest supporter, her Nanan, Eleanor A. Kale.
Lauren was an employee of REM Automotive Inc, Annville, Pa. Lauren had many interests, and her days were lived to the fullest. First and foremost, she was a loving and supportive mom to all three of her children. She enjoyed bike riding with her sons. She enjoyed music, clothes, and makeup with her daughter. She loved amusement parks, carnivals, and summer trips to Ocean City, MD, with her mom and Frankie. Her newest interest was junkyards with Jimmy. Her most important part of every day was telling her children and family that she loved them. She enjoyed playing cards and games and going to the casino.
She was quick to forgive and forget and had one of the biggest hearts we were blessed to know. She had a laugh that was like music to our ears – She will be sadly missed by all of us. Our lives were forever changed by being in her presence. Lauren didn’t always have it easy, but she always made the best of the situations placed in her way. Most people yearn to be not forgotten in death, to be remembered by loved ones. Lauren will also be loved deeply by people that never had the honor of meeting her. Lauren passed along the greatest gifts known to man. The gift of life. We may never understand why she had to leave us so suddenly, but in her quick passing, she was able to save at least three lives through organ donation. That was the selfless type of person many of us wish to be.
Lauren, paint the sky for your children as we watch for you every night. You are truly a hero, and we are so so proud of you. Sleep tight, beautiful girl, and we love you.
