We Remember

GUARD, Laura Constance

June 15, 1921 — December 10, 2013

Passed away peacefully on December 10, 2013 in West Kelowna, BC at the age of 92 with her devoted daughter Kathleen by her side.

Predeceased by her husband Herbert (1982) and son Rodney (2013). Laura is survived by her daughter Kathleen (Garth), daughter-in-law Lynn, three granddaughters Connie, Lauren and Robyn two grandsons Kelly and Danny, two great-grandchildren Ashley and Dorian and sister Gillian Hopkins in the UK.

Laura was born in Lewes East Sussex, England June 15th 1921. She was always an independent spirit and the only one of her family to leave the UK. An English WWII Veteran and war bride, Mum was honest, generous, caring and not afraid to speak her mind.

Laura loved Canada, especially her home at Candle Lake; but always had a soft spot in her heart for England. She was a talented cook and enjoyed many hobbies – knitting, sewing, crocheting, needlework and gardening. She was a loving Mum and Grandma and will be greatly missed by all her family.

We would like to thank the wonderful staff at Village at Smith Creek for their kind and compassionate care.
