Laura K Blanton

March 24, 2020 4 Condolences Print Obituary

Passed away suddenly in Edmonton, Alberta, at the age of 56.

Laura was born in Portland, Oregon in 1963. As a child, she travelled extensively with her family, living in Thailand and in remote communities in the north of Alberta, where her parents worked as school teachers. She graduated from Paul Kane High School in St. Albert, Alberta, in 1981, and later earned a diploma in library technology at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology. Laura worked in a number of different libraries in British Columbia and Alberta before health issues forced her into early retirement.

Laura loved animals, reading, and exploring the natural beauties of Western Canada. Her quick wit, compassion, and love of learning will be sadly missed.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Bernice (Bernie) Bashaw and Dale Bashaw, and is survived by her husband Chris, her daughter Imogen McIntyre, her grandson Solomon, her brother Daniel Bashaw, and uncle Bruce Beardsley.

At Laura’s request, there will be no service.

  2. Laura:

    During the last several years I prayed for you every day. You were a great support for me, and I hope that my words were able to support you too.

    Now that you’re gone there’s a hole in my life – and I still pray for your soul’s peace.

  3. RIP old friend

  4. Oh Laura I feel horrible that I never heard back from you. I’m glad we had our visit in 2019. Miss you so very much and hope that you have found peace.
    Your friend, Ilke
