It is with heavy hearts and great sadness, we the family announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and dear friend, Laura Parris on January 8, 2022. Born on Aug. 26, 1937 in Glace Bay. She later marred the love of her life Eddie Parris who predeceased her on March 31, 2018.
Laura was a fierce loving woman with a strong personality. She had many sayings and would provide you with words of wisdom whether you wanted it or not. To know her was to love her. Her family was everything to her. Laura did not want a lot of fanfare with her passing. She didn’t even want an obituary.
The only things she wanted stated is that she would be deeply missed by her best friend Muriel (Poogie) Farmer and her grandson Dwight Cunningham.
However, she will also be deeply missed and survived by her children Darlene, (Clem), Edwina (Joe), Joseph (Lydia), Linda (Gerard), Cecil (Lori), Eddie (Ann), Nathan (Juanita) “that girl is lazy as the all out doors” granddaughter Jacenda lol whom she resided and many grandchildren and great-grand children.
As per her wishes, cremation will take place and a celebration of life will occur at a later date. Services provided by Forest Haven Memorial Garden.
