It is with broken hearts that we, the family of Laura Langille, announce her passing on Sunday, March 10, 2024, at the age of 88.

Laura was born in Glace Bay on August 11, 1935, and was one of eight children.

Laura spent her adult life living in Louisbourg and was married to our father, Ervin for 63 years until his passing in 2015. Her most treasured role was that of wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She cherished her friends and loved spending time with them whether it was just going for a drive or travelling to the Caribbean, she was up for adventure.

Mom worked at Hopkins fish plant in her early years until she became a full-time homemaker. She was an incredible cook and baker, and she enjoyed preparing meals for friends and family. Mom had a strong faith and loved being part of her church family.

Besides her husband, Ervin, Laura is predeceased by her parents, Augustus and Eva Hibbs; sisters and brothers, Mabel, Jim, Jessie, George, John, and Marion.

Laura is survived by her children, Glenn (Pam), and Michelle (Toby); grandchildren, Nicole (Fergal), Marc, Kyle (Amanda), and Aaron (MacKenzi); great-grandchildren, Jensen and Alora; as well as her brother, Ralph (Dolly).

A special thank you to MacGillivary Guest home for your wonderful and dignified care provided to our mother during her stay there, in particular the staff at Rankin Road.
