We Remember

LAVIGNE, Leta Marguerite (née Williams)

November 19, 1922 – May 2, 2021

Mrs Leta Lavigne passed away on May 2, 2021, holding her husband’s hand with a nurse at her side in a Covid-19 isolation area, at the age of 98.

Born in Granville Ferry, NS, on November 19, 1922, she was the daughter of the late Alvin and Ethel Williams, and grew up in the Weymouth, NS area.  She is predeceased by brothers Austin and Chester Williams, and sister Jean Bonnenfant.  Leta, married three times, leaves behind her husband Gerard “Gerry” Lavigne, sons Ronald Amero (Barbara) and Daniel Amero (Veronica), daughter Sheila Ede (Leonard), several grandchildren and even great-great-grandchildren, mainly in NS.

A proud WW II vet, Leta was a very strong, determined person who almost always got her way.  Even her doctor gave up arguing with her, he once said.  She and Gerry spent many years RV-ing throughout Canada and the US, over-wintering in southern California with summers at their home in Kelowna, BC.

The family wishes to express its appreciation and thanks to the staff of the Spring Valley Care Centre in Kelowna for the great care she received over the past two years.  A special thanks also to Dr. R. Williams for his care over many years.  The support of BC Interior Health and Veterans Affairs Canada was very much appreciated.

Interment will take place in Weymouth NS when Covid-19 permits.  A donation in her memory to your local Royal Canadian Legion would be appreciated, www.legion.ca
