It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Loretta “Laura” Josephine LaSaga (nee Power) on Aug. 12, 2019, with her family by her side.
Laura was predeceased by her parents Augustus and Mary Power, her brother Martin Power, and her sister-in-law Minnie Power.
Laura is survived by her loving husband Clement LaSaga; her children Stephanie Power, Robert (Nickie) LaSaga, Stephen LaSaga, Philip (Sarah) LaSaga; eight grandchildren Christopher, Natasha, Dayna, Sydney, Julianna, Joshua, Lily, Claire; and three great-grandchildren Kade, Adalyn, and Ava. She is also survived by many brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews. Laura will be missed by all of her friends, family, step-grandchildren, and foster children that she has touched throughout her life.
Laura was born in Cornerbrook, N.L. in 1953. In 1977 she moved to Prince Rupert, B.C. however she always considered Newfoundland to be her home. Her greatest joy was her family and the bonds she created with the people in her life through quilting, knitting, cooking, listening to her favourite songs, socializing, and travelling. Her authentic personality will be deeply missed by all of us.
There will be no formal ceremony, as per Laura’s request. Celebration of Life to follow.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Laura’s memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or the Trinity Hospice at Overlander.
