Obituary for Ausra Laurusonis Paronis

Aušra Laurušonis Paronis affectionately known as Auš (pronounced Aush) passed away on Tuesday, September 25th, 2018. She was born February 13th, 1957 to Benigna Blandis and Juozas Laurušonis. Born and raised in Chicago, she married Jonas Paronis, the love of her life of 42 years. They built their home and gardens together in Darien, IL.


Aušra was an avid weaver and handmade the fabric for many pieces she artistically crafted. The following is one of her favorite poems:



The Weaver

My life is but a weaving
Between my Lord and me.
I cannot choose the colors;
He worketh steadily.
Oftentimes He weaveth sorrow;
And I in foolish pride
Forget He sees the upper,
And I the underside.
Not ‘til the loom is silent
And the shuttles cease to fly,
Shall God unroll the canvas
and explain the reason why.
The dark threads are as needful
In the Weaver’s skillfull hand,
As the threads of gold and silver
In the pattern He has planned.




Aušra was an exceptionally caring person who always put others ahead of herself. After starting as a volunteer, she proudly managed the Gingham Tree Resale Shop and worked with her friends for 15 years. All proceeds supported the Auxiliary of Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital.




She loved anything that required thoughtfulness, caring and the skillful use of her hands including crocheting, embroidering, knitting, cooking (an amazing cook) and gardening. She also loved performing with Grandis Lithuanian Folk Dance Ensemble.


Aušra was preceded in death by her parents Benigna and Juozas and many beloved canine companions. She leaves behind her husband, Jonas Paronis; her brother, Linas Laurušonis (Ola); her nieces Stephanie and Elisa Laurušonis; sister-in-law, Irena Paronis (Jim); and Snaigė / Snowflake her Poodle/Chihuahua. She will be missed by many loving family members and friends.
