Sperling, Laurette 1935 – 2022
It is with great sadness and much love that the family of Laurette Sperling announce her passing peacefully at the age of 86 in Sherwood Park, Alberta. We are grateful that mom is finally at peace.
She is survived by her daughters, Brenda Salloum and Susan (Andrew) Shephard, and her sons, Terry (Suzy) Sperling and Darcy (Cheryl) Sperling. Laurette is survived by 11 grandchildren: Jason Sperling, Shawn Shute, Bradley Sperling, Lindsey Shephard, Ashley Barbosa, Jody Hutchison, Megan Demian, Hailie Sperling, Kyle Sperling, Jacob Sperling, and Jordan Sperling; 4 great grandchildren: Adyson Primeau-Shute, Keagan Primeau-Shute, Tiago Barbosa and Laila Demian; and 2 step great grandchildren: Raymond Ossevorth and Aidan Ossevorth.
In heaven Laurette is reunited with her husband of 52 years, Joseph Sperling (2006); and her oldest son Wayne (Carol) Sperling (2016); her brothers Leon Lavoie (1930), Thomas (Simone) Lavoie (1969), and Roger (Verna) Lavoie (2010); sister-in-law Verna (Roger) Lavoie (2007); and brother-in-law’s Hector (Leona) Dubrule (2020) and Gordon (Bernadette) Hartell (2017).
Laurette is laughing, perhaps cross-stitching or needle point, and playing either a game of cards or dominos with these loved ones!
Our heartfelt appreciation and gratitude are extended to all the Staff at Sherwood Care for their loving and compassionate care of our mother while she lived there and especially during her final days.
Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 15 at St. Albert Catholic Parish, 7 St. Vital Avenue, with Fr. Ignacy Warias, OMI, officiating.
