It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved Aunt Laura on July 16, 2020. Laura was predeceased by her parents, sister and nephew Terry. She is survived by her niece Joanne (Hugh) Gamble, nephews Allan (Linda) Schreiner, Dale (Maureena) Schreiner and Terry’s wife Debbie Schreiner plus many endearing great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins and their families.
Laura Evelyn Lindborg was born June 28, 1922 at Neptune, Saskatchewan to parents Frank and Bella (Noss) Lindborg. Laura had a sister Elsie two years older. In the spring of 1927, they moved to Gronlid where they lived for a few years and then they moved to Pontrilas where she attended a one room country school.
Laura and her sister served in World War II in 1943 at a shell manufacturing facility in Oshawa, Ontario.
After her Dad passed away in 1946, Laura and her mother moved to Nipawin and started a successful seamstress business. She exhibited articles in the Agricultural Fair and after taking classes at the Extension Division of the University of Saskatchewan she was qualified to judge at fairs. Her mother passed away in April 1961 and Laura continued on with the seamstress business.
Laura joined the Rebekah Lodge and was very active for many years, serving as President for 3 years and District President for 2 years. She assumed the task of Memory Book representative for the Secretaries Association (started in 1953).
Laura loved travelling and spent a lot of her retirement years visiting family (mostly in the United States). One highlight was when she saw the space shuttle launch in Orlando, Florida. She also enjoyed travelling on group tours.
Laura was genuinely interested in everyone she met and kept in close contact with family and friends.
