It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Laura Margaret Brown on October 26, 2018. We say goodbye to a wonderful mother, nana, great grandmother, aunt and friend. She will be missed by all who knew her.
Mom started her life March 15, 1928 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan where she spent her childhood. She was always proud to have had Gordie Howe as a school friend. She moved to Vancouver where she attended High School and then started work for the Telephone Company. She met Ted Brown, her future husband, and they married in 1947. They worked in the logging industry and lived in a float-house in Seymour Inlet. After starting a family in Powell River and then Vancouver she moved to Willow Point in 1952 where she lived for the rest of her life.
She often rode her bike on Dahl Road down to the ocean where she would swim. She did laps in the pool and “swam” around Vancouver Island.
She was a member of boy scouts, Willow Point School PTA and Community Club, and the Order of the Royal Purple.
She worked at Simpsons Sears on Shoppers row and Clarks Pharmacy. Laura and Ted owned the Esso Service station in Willow Point.
She is surviived by sons Garry (Sandy), Bob (laurie), Steven (Tara); granddaughters Lindsay (Rob), Natalie (David), Kamryn and Mallory; great granddaughters – Ellie and Salie; Special nieces Karne, Penny, Sherry and Linda and their families. Pre-deceased by husband, Ted and her sisters Mary and Vera.
We would like to thank the nurses and staff of Discovery Harbour care centre for their kind and thoughtful care during the last months of mom’s life. Following mom’s wishes there will be no service.
