It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our beloved mother. She is survived by her loving husband, Garfield McKinley; daughters Gail, Edmee, April, Judi and Bob’s wife Sharon; Gar’s family, Arlene (Arnold), Sharon, Marcie, Jeff, and Bill Copping. Laure was predeceased by her first husband Frederick White (1961) Daughter Loretta, (2001) and son Robert (Bob) 2007. Laure had 14 Grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren and many on the McKinley side. Laure was active with the Sweet Adelines for several years in Kelowna. Laure and Gar travelled to Arizona in the winter for many years. They were very active in tennis and golf. She was very proud of her hole-in-one. Laure was the last survivor of 14 children to the late Alphonse and Angelina Quesnel of Lumby. A memorial will be held at a later date. Thank you to the staff at Orchard Manor for all the love and support given to Mum. Mum will be sadly missed by all who knew her.
