Laurette was born on August 13, 1933 to Cecile and William Hamel in Frenchville, SK, where she received her education and was married. They bought a farm in Glenworth, SK where they began raising their four children. The family later moved to Regina, SK and once her children were grown, she came to BC to be closer to her daughters and other brothers and sisters. Laurette volunteered at the Creston Valley Hospital Tuck Shop, craft fairs and natural health expos. She enjoyed music, dancing and playing cards. She also was a part of a book study group with friends and attended church regularly. Her family, children and grandchildren were most important to her.

She was predeceased by her parents, Cecile and William Hamel.

Laurette will be dearly missed by her four children, ten grandchildren, thirteen great-grand children and three great-great-grandchildren and seven sisters and brothers.
