It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved Mother,

Our mom had the Heart of a Lion and fought until the bitter end even
overcoming Lung Cancer along the way. Her kind and gentle spirit will be
missed by all those who had the privilege of knowing her. Louise will be
remembered by her children as a loving, caring mother and the most
important person in their lives.

Louise had a life-long love affair with her family and has left a legacy of
laughter, love and cherished memories - she took pleasure in the simple
things and didn't sweat the small stuff- through her example we can all
learn to breathe.

remarkable lady. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the The Lung Association Alberta/NWT Division Box 4700 STN South, Edmonton, Alberta T6E 9Z9.
