January 5, 1944 - January 24, 2021

It is with the most profound sadness we mourn the passing of our beloved Wife, Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother Laurette on January 24, 2021.
Laurette was born and raised in St. Vital on January 5, 1944 where she made many wonderful and lasting friendships. Gary and Laurette met at a Wrestling Match as young teenagers. From that night on the rest is a beautiful love story that endured for over 63 years. Laurette was a gentle, caring individual whose love for her family was unconditional, she was our rock. A perfect day for her was having all her family around the table for Sunday lunch and then heading outside for a sherry or glass of wine sitting on their swing surrounded by her kids. Laurette had a loving nature that made her the best wife, mother, grandmother and friend anyone could ever have asked for. She faced all of life's challenges with grace, dignity and without complaint. She will be sorely missed by many.
Laurette is leaving behind her loving husband of 61 years, Gary, and their children, Bill (Theresa), Darlene (Glen Burling) Bonita (Larry Fehr) Crystal (Darren Shumila) Garrett (Mandi), Ian (Sandy); 17 grand children, 13 great-grandchildren, her sister Mariette (Larry Paquette), sisters-in-law, Dorothy, Agnes; and Aunt Theresa Frobisher. Also survived by her sisters-in-law, Maureen (Sean) Doreen, Yvonne and Rita. Welcoming Laurette with open arms will be her father and mother, Edmond and Marie; brothers, Robert, Eugene, Edward, Armand, Henri and Marcel; sister Annette and son-in-law Warren Morfoot; plus many sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law.

"She fought so hard to stay,
but she had to let us go"

Cremation has taken place a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
