Laura Muir, 56, passed away on Friday, September 11, 2015 at 9:11pm. Her devotion to her family and firm belief in God support her during her fight with cancer. We were happily married in Abbotsford, BC in 1986, 29 years ago.
My wife Laura grew up in the city of Vancouver and spent most of her life dedicated to caring for others and being a supportive, nurturing and loving mother, wife and best friend to me and our son Colin. She also played a special role as a loving step-mom and confidant to all of Colin’s friends. There was nothing more important in this world than her son and the care of others. She worked in the Abbotsford School district for more than 20 years as a Special Needs Assistant. Her last wish was told to Colin about giving the gift of sight to someone in need so we made that happen. She wanted us to extend a warm and heartfelt thank you to the Chilliwack Palliative Care staff, Chilliwack Home Health and above all the kind of staff at Cascade Hospice for their understanding and continuing out pour of love and support for the residents and their families on a daily basis. Laura was predeceased by her father John Drummond and her mother Darla Drummond. She is survived by her husband Shawn, her son Colin, cousin Janet and dear friends. At Laura’s request there will not be a service. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be sent in her name to either the Chilliwack Hospice Society www.thechilliwackhospice.org/donate or The Eye Bank of BC www.eyebankofbc.ca/financial.html
