After a brief illness, Laura passed away on September 29th, 2020 at the age of 46.
Laura is survived by her husband of 25 years Anthony (Tony) Vanderscheer, and her two beautiful children, Hunter age 11 and Emma age 3. Hunter and Emma take comfort in knowing that mommy loved them deeply and is now in heaven with her pink wings.
Laura had a smile that would light up any room. She was a very generous, loving and thoughtful soul. She also had a contagious laugh that we will all deeply miss. Anyone that knew Laura knows that she loved animals. We are pretty sure it was common knowledge in the land of the four-legged that if you were lost or without a home to go straight to her house.
Laura was predeceased by her father Stephen Cranker (2017), paternal grandparents Gerald and Doreen Cranker and maternal grandfather John Goff.
Laura will be terribly missed by her mother Pat Cranker, brother Paul (Kim) Cranker and her Nanny Elma Goff. She was the proud niece of Dale and Randy Neal, Stephen Goff, Stewart Goff and Anne and Gary Betts. She had many cousins and extended family members that were very important to her.
Laura will also be sadly missed by her mother and father-in-law Phyllis and Bill Vanderscheer Sr., brother-in-law Bill (Angela) Vanderscheer, sister-in-law Sandra (Warren) Skeete, and brother-in-law Jerry (Crystal) Vanderscheer.
Laura was an immensely proud aunt to Kyle and Shawn Cranker, Ashley and Rachael Vanderscheer, Ava and Gabriel Vanderscheer, and Kira Skeete.
Laura had many friends and co-workers that she considered family both in Canada and the United States.
A Graveside Service will be held at Gananoque Cemetery on Saturday September 11, 2021 at 11a.m. Anyone wishing to honour Laura's memory are asked to donate to an animal rescue of your choosing.
