In the early morning of July 4, 2020, our mother passed away just two weeks before her 103rd birthday at Douglas Campbell Lodge in Portage la Prairie, Manitoba.

She leaves to mourn her three daughters, Patricia Schwitek (Harold), Lynda Jones, and Deborah Lane; 12 grandchildren and their families, and sister Mona Harper.
Louise taught school throughout her working career predominantly in Manitoba, with one exception, Winfield, BC, for a brief period.

Condolences & Memories (5 entries)

  • Dear Mona, Debbie, and family, I was saddened to read of the loss of Mrs. Lane. Please accept my condolences as I remember her and all of you with great fondness. Sincerely, Monique Aquin (Graboski) - Posted by: Monique AQUIN GRABOSKI (Freind) on: Jul 13, 2020

  • Please accept sincere condolences from the Lane family. We had many great visits over the years when Aunt Louise and Debbie would regularly visit my mom Lucienne Lane, wife of Frank Lane. I’d often be there with my Mom by chance during these visits. Aunt Louise was such a kind soul who loved all, especially family. We unfortunately lost touch after my Mom passed other than at family funerals. Be at peace with Uncle Pat and the other family gone before you.

  • Our condolences goes to the LANE and LAVALLEE families. Rest in Piece Louise. - Posted by: Marcel Daignault (Cousins) on: Jul 08, 2020

  • Oleh & I want to extend our sincere sympathy to Mona & extended family. Louise was a kind, thoughtful and friendly lady. When she left St. John's Parish she was greatly missed. - Posted by: Rose & Oleh Gulay (Friends) on: Jul 08, 2020

  • To Mona and all my Lavallee cousins, Please accept my condolences on Louise's passing. I remember speaking with Louise and Rita at my Mom's service over 25 years ago now. They kindly arranged for a Mass in my Mom's honour. That was so thoughtful of them. If I remember correctly my Mom (Ida) was named after Aunty Tillie. I do remember coming to the farm as a child and always having such a good time with the Alex and Birdie Lavallee families. As I am still in contact with Aunty Blanche, Uncle Bill and Aunty Yvonne's daughter Elaine, I'm sure they would want me to pass on their condolences as well. Take care. With deepest sympathy, Janice Hoffman - Posted by: Janice Hoffman (nee Campbell) (Cousin Janice (Ida's daughter)) on: Jul 07, 2020
