MAMMEL, Laura Elizabeth

Laura Mammel

In loving memory of Laura Elizabeth Mammel who passed away on August 8, 2021 at the age of 90. She was born and raised on the Gustafson farm on one of the “three hills” outside the town of Three Hills, Alberta. She went to Secretary School in Calgary, married Richard (Dick) and raised three children. She worked as a secretary at Sun Life, SAIT, and PJ Toole & Cote Real Estate. She was a devoted mother, and her family was the centre of her being. As her family grew, she remained the devoted matriarch at the heart of all their worlds. Laura passionately worked on crosswords, puzzles and Sudoku right up until she was taken from us. She loved traveling and playing cards with her family. She had a lovely sense of humor and an excellent memory. There wasn’t a dog that wasn’t welcome in her house and they all knew where the treat drawer was. She also kept all the local birds, squirrels and bunnies fed, and delighted in watching them at her feeder and birdbath. She enjoyed her flowers and yard during the summer. Laura was predeceased by her parents Ida and Victor, brother Allen, grandson Harry, and husband Dick; and will be deeply missed by her brother Lynn; children Debra (Gary) Newton, Cheryl (Glen) Sherman, and Garry (Joyce) Mammel; grandchildren Devon (Brad) King, Jason (Cara) Sherman, Alisha (Stu) Porter, and Russell; as well as 4 great grandchildren Eli, Mikaela, Amelia, and Abbigail. Special thanks to the staff on Unit 30/31 at the Foothills Medical Centre for their kind and compassionate care. Donation may be made in lieu of flowers to Foothills Hospital. Funeral arrangements will be made through Mountain View Funeral Home.
