It is with regret that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother Laura Elizabeth Reed at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on July 11/09. Laura was born in Kerrobert, Saskatchewan in 1920, she was 89 years old.
Laura and her husband Gerald (pre-deceased) were longtime residents of Coldstream. Laura enjoyed the outdoors and with her husband Gerald were members of the rock club as well as avid anglers, travellers and campers. Her garden was always in bloom, full of wonderful fruit and many memories. Laura was pre-deceased by brothers Jack, George, Fred and sister Gertrude. She will be loved and missed by: son Lesel Reed of Lumby BC, granddaughter Jodi (Bruce) Fromhart of Kelowna and Grandson Jeff (Connie) Reed of Kelowna. Also blessed to have known her were her two great grand children Jordan (3) & Sonja (1) Reed.
As per Laura’s request, their will be no memorial to honour her. She was laid to rest in Coldstream Cementary. The family would like to thank the caring staff of the Vernon Jubilee Hospital and Coldstream Meadows for helping her through her last days and enduring her wry sense of humour even until the end.
Donations in memory of Laura can be made to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation, 2101 – 32 Street, Vernon, BC V1T 5L2.
