Obituary for Laura Belcourt (Osachoff)

Laura Belcourt (Osachoff)
Laura Belcourt (nee Osachoff), born May 29, 1936 in Wadena, Saskatchewan passed away
on October 20, 2017 in the Regina General Hospital. She has joined her husband of 58
years, Edmond Belcourt, who died on August 8, 2017. Left to mourn her loss are her much
loved children; Nadine, Roger, Marc and his wife Junko; her grandchildren Shaina,
Mercedes, Mackenzie, Jarek, Layla, Lucas, and great-grandson Dominic. Predeceased
by her parents Louis and Mabel (Malekoff) Osachoff, her brother Alexander, and her
sister Catherine. Laura grew up in Kylemore, Saskatchewn, leaving home to study nursing
in Saskatoon graduating from City Hospital in 1957. While in Saskatoon, Laura met Edmond
in 1958, married in 1959 and moved to Regina. In 1963 they moved to Lafleche
where Laura worked as a nurse at the Lafleche Union Hospital until her retirement
in 1998. Laura was active in the town life in Lafleche, belonging to the CWL, curling for
many years, playing softball, and after retirement she turned to her real passions
which were artistic in nature. She took up painting and carving, guitar and banjo,
quilting for all of her children and grandchildren, and sang in the church choir
for many years and most recently had taken a class in stained glass which truly fascinated
her. Many happy times were spent with her friends and family at her home in Lafleche –
the door was always open. Laura will be greatly missed. Prayers were at 7 p.m.
October 27, 2017 with Mass of Christian burial on October 28, 2017 at 10:30 a.m.,
followed by lunch in the Parish Hall. Both were held at Ste Radagonde Roman Catholic Church
in Lafleche. A family interment took place at Ste Radagonde RC Cemetery in
Lafleche immediately following the Mass. Donations in Laura's memory to the Ste Radegonde RC Church
Building Fund Box 518 Lafleche, SK S0H 2K0 were greatly appreciated.
