Obituary

LAURA FRASER (published on August 06, 2009)



LAURA FRASER Peacefully, Laura passed away on August 3, 2009 at the age of 85. She leaves to mourn, her beloved husband, Jack, her children Rob and Bonnie Fraser, Dawn Fraser and Joe Moskal, Doug and Jan Fraser, and Sharon Fraser and Gil Krehling; her grandchildren, who she loved so dearly, Carlee, Merrill, Jonathan, Hanna and Leah; her surviving sisters Aster and Cleone, sister-in-law Fay, many nieces and nephews and their families and her dear friend Lucia. A life well lived is described as having the love of family and children, to laugh often, have the respect of others, make others' lives easier, to keep learning throughout your life, be non-judgmental, offer your wisdom when you see it is needed, and dance and make music with what you have left. Mom's life was certainly very well lived and the world is a better place for having had her in it. We especially remember how she had such a talent for making a house into a home. The warmth of her touch was everywhere and one felt as if they had been wrapped in a soft blanket as soon as they crossed the threshold. This was especially true at their home in Keewatin, Ontario by the river where Mom and Dad lived for over 40 years. During their retirement, they were never content to just sit. In addition to their frequent trips with family to Barbados, they also traveled the world. We would often be regaled with their stories of traveling through Australia in a van, or the state of affairs in Yugoslavia, or child labour problems in Morocco, to name a few. Way to go, Mom! She was fascinated with weather patterns, often commenting on some type of weather that was going on in the world. With being as well read as she was, Mom had many theories on why this was happening. She was also an accomplished seamstress, great gardener, fabulous cook, gracious hostess and, of course, textbook Grandmother. We consider Mom's last months with us as a gift in that we were able to once again tell her how much we loved her. The family would like to thank the palliative care staff at Riverview for the tender loving care of our mother. Flowers gratefully declined. Donations may be made to Mom's favourite charity, The Salvation Army, 104 Matheson Street South, Kenora, ON P9N 1T8. A celebration of Laura's life will be held on Saturday, August 8, 2009 at 10:00 a.m. at Chapel Lawn Funeral Home, 4000 Portage Ave with a reception to follow. Chapel Lawn 885 - 9715
