It is with great sadness and loss that we announce the passing of Laura Louise Marsh (nee Sampson) born 22 March 1950. Laurie passed away in Lax Kw’alaams on 11 February 2016.
Laurie is survived by her mother Betty, her children; Gail, Coby, Douglas, her grandchildren; Tyler, David, Edward, Jacob, her siblings; Audrey (Mike), Donna, Elmer (Terri Lynn), Richard, Maxine, Colleen, Brad, Sherry, Thelma and many cousins, uncles, aunts and close friends.
Laurie was born in Prince Rupert BC and spent most of her life in Lax Kw’alaams with her family. She moved to Burnaby as a teenager to complete high school and then returned to Lax Kw’alaams as a substitute teacher for a time. Laurie loved to fish with her father and was a friendly happy person who was not afraid to speak her mind. As a young mother she was happy to be home with her children and loved the outdoors. The last few years of her life were spent enriching relationships with her family.
There is comfort in knowing that Laurie is now reunited with her father Edward, sister Barbie, brother Russel, and her Grandparents; Charles & Louisa Dudoward and William & Martha Sampson.
We appreciate the support of those who joined us to share fond memories in Lax Kw’alaams
this past weekend.
