  • Terry and all the Frovich and Zalitach families please accept my sincere condolences. I am so very sorry to hear of Laurie’s passing. I have very fond memories of Laurie. She was a wonderful hostess serving her tasty treats/meals and a big side of lots of laughter! Often we had tears rolling down our cheeks from laughing so hard! May all the good memories of Laurie help you through this difficult time. Karen Hunter (friend) - Posted by: Karen Hunter (Friend) on: Mar 30, 2022

  • My Deepest Condolences to the Frovich and Zalitach family. Laurie will be sorely missed by many. Heaven has welcomed another angel. We recently connected again. We talked for hours on the phone as there was no time lost. We had planned to meet up after the Covid restrictions lifted. She was anxious to travel back to BC to visit her beloved grandson and family. Although the time was short for us reconnecting I am grateful for the time we had. Remembering her in kindness. RIP my dear friend, until we talk again. - Posted by: Margaret Petersen nee Douglas (Friend) on: Mar 26, 2022

  • Terry and the rest of the Frovich and Zalitach family, I am truly saddened to hear about Laurie's passing. Our family has been friends with Laurie and her siblings for since our days at Elmwood High school. Laurie was always laughing or smiling about something which made her a great person to be around. She was and is one of a kind. She is going to be truly missed not only by her family but by the countless number of friends she made through out the years. With much love Jeff. - Posted by: jeffrey muise (Friend ) on: Mar 26, 2022
