August 1937 ~ January 2013
Beloved wife of Darryl Hutchings of Stirling, loving mother of Guy Simon and wife Katherine of Lethbridge, Dana Lee and husband Jeff Saby of Kamloops and John and Craig Hutchings of Calgary. Grandmother of Adrian, Kyle, Courtney, Simon Cole, Owen and Eva; great-grandmother of Alexis and Braxton. Predeceased by her parents George and Miriam Santa, and sister Wilma (Santa) Winter. Smart, good looking and fun loving she will be missed by her sister Janet Sheen; brothers Gary, Skip, Don and Les Santa and their families; her extended family in Southern Alberta; and all those that knew her. She was an avid gardener and interior decorator. Her greatest joy was outdoors in her flower gardens. Traveled widely and lived in many different places she shared her extensive education, exceptional talents, broad experience and zest for life as a community outreach worker and friend. She helped many people and they responded with kindness to her and now she is gone to a better place, but her imprint will never fade.
A Celebration of Laurette’s Life will be held from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, on Saturday, January 19, 2013 at COUNTRY KITCHEN CATERING, 1715 Mayor Magrath Drive South, Lethbridge. Have fun. That’s the way she would like it. Once the crocuses are out, her favorite flower, a private ceremony will be held at her ancestral home of Milk River.
