Passed away peacefully on August 10, 2015 in the Palliative Care Unit at Lady Minto Hospital.
Laurie, originally from Ontario, came to live on Salt Spring Island in 2003. A friend of Laurie’s recently wrote to her: “Your unselfishness, compassion and willingness to serve others are some of the qualities that make you shine so brightly.” Laurie will be sorely missed by all of her friends. On the day before her passing, Laurie wrote these words: “My very best and heartfelt wishes to everyone who has passed my way and continue to do so. You’ve offered me as much as any life could have received and more. Thank you.”
Rest in peace, dear sweet Laurie.
