Obituary of Laura Matilda Chase

Laura Chase (Wilson, Olson)


Laura Matilda Chase of Red Deer AB, formerly of Kelowna BC, passed away November 24, 2021 at the age of 93 years.

Our supportive, kind, loving and humourous Matriarch has gone to join her loved ones on the other side:

Her husband of 60 years, Forrest

Her son Herold

Her daughter Velma

Her son Leslie

Her son Martin

She will be missed beyond measure by:

Her daughter Marie (Jim)

Her son Raymond (Shirley)

Her son Eldon

Her daughter-in-law Val

Her daughter-in-law Sheryle

Her son-in-law Denny (Ellen)

Her 11 grandchildren

Her 19 great-grandchildren

Her three great-great-grandchildren

Her sister Marion and her brother Jim

And numerous family and friends

Laura devoted her life to her husband, children and grandchildren, always putting them ahead of herself. She enjoyed being with family and friends, animals, growing flowers, and crocheting. Her goal was to crochet all of her great-grandchildren a blanket, usually given as a wedding gift.

Laura enjoyed this last year living at the West Park Lodge. She would jokingly tell the rec leader that the only reason she showed up for exercises was to get a cup of coffee. She would often say, “The girls are so good to me.” She continued crocheting beautiful blankets for great-grandchildren.

“The family chain is broken and nothing will be the same, but as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.”

A memorial will be held in Kelowna, BC, where Laura resided a majority of her life, on April 14 of 2022. Laura will be laid to rest in Kelowna with her husband Forrest and son Herold.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to a charity of one’s choice.
