Mar­ga­ree Val­ley, Nova Sco­tia

The fam­ily of Laura Jean Fraser is sad­dened to an­nounce her pass­ing on Au­gust 31, 2017. She passed away peace­fully in In­ver­ness Hos­pi­tal, with her lov­ing hus­band next to her and her fam­ily by her side. Born in Mar­ga­ree on Jan­uary 5, 1941, the daugh­ter of Ge­orge W and Lin­den (Lat­ter) Crowdis. Laura will be sadly missed by her soul-mate and lov­ing hus­band of 56 years, Mal­colm (Bud) Fraser; her chil­dren, She­lagh (Joey), Bad­deck; An­gela (Mark), Mar­ga­ree Val­ley; Scott, Hal­i­fax; her beloved grand­chil­dren, whom she adored and loved and they thought she was the best grandma around; Ja­cob, Crowdis, Michaela, Chloe, Luke, Noah and Matthew; her broth­ers Ray­mond (Qui), Saint John, NB; Franklin (Wil­fri­dine), Mar­ga­ree Val­ley; Shel­don, Oko­toks, Al­berta; her Fraser In-laws and many nieces and neph­ews who thought the world of her. She also leaves be­hind her “Ex­tended Mu­si­cal Jam Fam­ily” who be­came won­der­ful and car­ing friends. Laura was the hard­est worker we knew and there was noth­ing she couldn’t do. She was a jack­o­fall –trades and through­out her life­time held too many dif­fer­ent jobs to men­tion. She em­braced life to the fullest, was very ac­tive in her com­mu­nity, al­ways lend­ing a help­ing hand to those in need. Through the years, Laura served on The Home and School Com­mit­tee, was Pres­i­dent of the Mar­ga­ree Salmon As­so­ci­a­tion, served on Wilson United Church Board, an East­ern Star Mem­ber, started the Mu­sic Jam Ses­sions at Wilson Church Hall and served on many other com­mit­tees and or­ga­ni­za­tions. In the later years, Laura and Bud trav­eled around Cape Bre­ton to all the Mu­sic Jams, with Bud play­ing and yo­del­ing. We al­ways re­ferred to Mom as Dad’s “Stage Man­ager”. The teapot was al­ways on and she al­ways had fresh baked goods to serve with the tea; ev­ery­one was made to feel wel­come in their home. Even, right up un­til Laura went to the hos­pi­tal, our home was filled with fam­ily, friends, love and laugh­ter and of course the teapot was on. She al­ways made you feel loved. Laura had many hob­bies; stain glass, ce­ram­ics, dec­o­rat­ing wed­ding cakes, gar­den­ing, ty­ing salmon flies, oil paint­ing and pre­serv­ing. Christ­mas at home was a Mag­i­cal Time which we will miss. Laura had too many won­der­ful

qual­i­ties to men­tion; but, our fa­vorites were her gen­eros­ity, love, sense of hu­mor, work ethics and her ded­i­ca­tion to our Dad; as his care­giver, to the very end. Laura, we will miss you im­mensely, there will be a void in our hearts and home; but, we cel­e­brate your life know­ing you are home with the Lord and a new chap­ter be­gins. Cel­e­bra­tion of Life Ser­vice was held Septem­ber 4 at Wilson United Church, Mar­ga­ree Cen­tre with Rev. Ali­cia Cox of­fi­ci­at­ing.

Love, fam­ily –Al­ways en­dures
