Laurian Swabey of Tofield, Alberta passed away in Airdrie at the age of 93 years.  


Laurie was born in Lomond, AB. She spent her early years in various RCMP detachments before moving to Edmonton. She married Ron Swabey on July 14, 1945 and they began their life together on the Ministik family farm. She was a great cook and was most at home in her kitchen. Her flower gardens were her pride and joy. Laurie was a founding member of the Ministik Ladies Club and participated enthusiastically for over sixty years.  She enjoyed working at the Tofield Robinson’s, making many new friendships. A few years after Ron’s passing  she moved to Tofield, where she enjoyed 14 years of town living in her new home. In 2013 she made the move to Airdrie to be closer to family.


She is survived by her children Gary (Karen) and Cheryl (Rodney); grandchildren Kevin (Paula), Trevor (Jessica), Michelle (Michael), Leanne and Gregory (Alexandria); great-grandchildren Megan, Nolan, Emily, Katelyn and Reid; sisters Frances and Sandra (Mert); sister-in-law Helen and numerous nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.


Laurian was predeceased by her husband Ronald; siblings Gladys, George, Doris and Donald.


A memorial service will be held at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, January 26, 2019 at the Tofield United Church.  Cremation has taken place.


Memorial donations may be made to the Alberta Cancer Foundation.
