Dekker, Laura

It is with great sadness that the family of Laura Dekker of Loretto and formerly of Maryhill, Ontario announces her sudden passing on August 9, 2020 in her 43 year. Wife of Adrien Larouche. Loving mother to son Jackson. Much loved daughter of Patricia and the late Ralph Dekker (2019). Dear sister to Jennifer (Jeff) Meyer and Joanne Dekker. Doting Auntie Nori to Shelby, Brandon, Elizabeth, Jaiden and Evangeline. Laura will be missed by Adrien’s parents, Marcelle and Loretta Larouche, his sister Crystal (Jeremy) and their children. She is also missed by her many aunts, uncles and cousins. Laura was a dedicated nurse, working more than 20 years in the critical care unit at Southlake Regional Health Centre. She worked tirelessly, giving her all to the care of others, even  through the Covid crisis. Laura was always on the sidelines cheering Jackson on as he played hockey and enjoyed many camping trips with her family.

    We want to express our sincere condolences to Adrien and Jackson and all of Laura’s family. The few times we met Laura, she impressed us with her pleasant, caring manner, traits that undoubtedly shone through in her daily role as an ICU nurse. One of the many unsung heroes during this pandemic. Rest In Peace Laura.
