KERGAN, Laurie

Laurie Anne Kergan (Southgate) 03/15/1957 – 07/09/2018

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beautiful mother, Laurie Anne Kergan (Southgate). Laurie passed away peacefully with family by her side at Lethbridge Regional Hospital on Monday, July 9, 2018. Laurie was the age of 61.

Greatly loved and missed by her loving life partner, Kevin Rash of Lethbridge.

The loving mother of Nikki (Kyle) Southgate Smith of Lethbridge, Jessica (Tim) Christensen of Okotoks, Matthew (Michelle) Southgate of Lethbridge & Collin Rash of Lethbridge. Laurie also leaves behind 8 grandchildren, Taylor (Candace) Smith of Lethbridge, Jordan & Noel Smith of Lethbridge, Ryen and Parker Christensen of Okotoks, Ayla & Sophia Southgate of Lethbridge.

Laurie will lovingly be remembered by her 6 brothers and sister; George Kergan, Gordon Kergan, Brenda Ketcheson, Ian Kergan, Bill Kergan and Darcy Horlacher. Laurie was predeceased by her mother Marie Julienne Horlacher (Kergan) and father Andrew Kergan.

Laurie was known for her generous spirit and fun loving ways. She had such an amusing sense of humor and a great radiant laugh.

She spent her free time yard sailing, tending to her flower gardens, and playing with her cats. Laurie liked to travel, and always made sure to bring back a keepsake for her grandchildren. Family was always number one priority in her eyes, and she welcomed anyone with open arms to join her already huge brood. Laurie always had a full house. Sunday dinners were a special tradition.

She will be missed by all who knew her.

“It’s hard to forget someone who gave you so much to remember”.

Per Laurie’s wishes, there will not be a Funeral Service.

    Sweet Auntie Laurie.
    When I was little I thought my Auntie was so beautiful and sweet. Turned out that beauty wasn’t just skin deep, she was lovely and kind to the core and I feel lucky to have known her.
    Much love to her beautiful kids, Nikki, Jessica, Matt and Colin and my deepest condolences to all who loved her. She is a special lady.
