I am so sorry that I missed your visitation. I knew Mrs. and Mr. Cheer from the St. Andrew's church congregation. They were such a loving couple and Laurine was such an inspiration to all. Her kind words and thoughtfulness radiated to all those she touched. She was a wonderful lady and she will be missed. I am sure she and Norm are once again reunited. My favourite memory of them occurred when I drove by their home. Norm had just finished cutting the grass and Laurine was outside brushing him off with a curling broom, it looked so funny but was such a kind gesture (or she didn't want the grass tracked throughout her home, lol), a truly loving couple that are once again together. Take care. Patsy Hand Currelly

So sorry to hear of Laurine’s passing. She was a lady of dignity and gentleness. Ted And I knew her socially and I also knew her through her work. She was definitely a person to emulate and someone who was always interested in you.

Laurine was a lovely lady. We always enjoyed a good visit as we sat beside her on Sunday mornings at St. Andrews Church. She showed a keen interest in our family and will be remembered as a good friend.

So sorry to hear of Laurines passing. She and my late Mom were born the same year and had enjoyed time together as young ladies. They reconnected in their nineties and Laurine drove to see Mom in Brighton and they had wonderful visits. A pleasure for me to meet such a lady! A life well lived.

Nancy Williams - September 5, 2020

I remember Laurine and Norm as kind, caring people. They would often walk hand in hand. They occupied the pew at St Andrews a few rows ahead of us on the right hand side. I also remember what beautiful skaters they were. They would be at the Baltimore skating rink the same time I would take my children for the seniors/kids skate. Fondly remembering them both as a picture perfect couple, which I'm sure they were. Hi to the Flindall family. (Barry, Heather-hope you are well) Sincerely Nancy Currelly Williams

Nancy & Terry Stopps and Family - September 2, 2020

Laurine was a good neighbour and friend. In the years she and Norm lived across the street, Laurine took a great neighbourly interest and was always ready to help. If we left lights on in the car, Laurine would call with her concern that our battery might be dead in the morning. When one of our children was about to be born and an emergency arose, she rushed over to look after our other kids, so we could dash to the hospital. She was happy to be an emergency contact for us, at the school. As we got older, Laurine was there with good advice on walking for health (she was very active herself). And was always willing to discuss local 'issues’, and share experiences. Once she moved into the retirement home, it was tougher to see her, but we did on a couple of occasions. What a wonderful life she had. We will miss her. Our condolences to the family.
