    I think this woman worked at Fumertons when I moved here in 1974. Small town Kelowna. She was so helpful and kind to me as a new resident. So sorry for your loss.

    I met Laura through guiding as she guided me to becoming a leader in Lake Country. Laura was wonderful with all the girls and leaders. So sad to read of her passing. Condolences to her family and friends.
