Louanne Claire Delaney (nee Kramer), aka Granny Lou, passed away peacefully at the Agape Hospice in Calgary, at the age of 81 years on Monday, May 19, 2014 – surrounded by her loved ones.

She is survived by her beloved husband Hugh Delaney, her five children and their partners, Nancy (Gregg) Larsen, Susan Morrow (Warren Fick), Mike Morrow (Ellen Brodylo), Margo (Tim) Mooney, Marianne Olsen (Bill Foose) all of Calgary, as well as her eight grandchildren, who she loved so much; Mat and Danny Larsen, Emily Morrow-Fick, Joey, Katie and Anna Mooney, Brett and Jackie Boy Olsen.

  1. Dear Hugh, Marianne & Bill, Mike & Ellen, Susan & Warren, Margo& Tim, Nancy & Gregg, and families:
    What a loss for you all. Our deepest sympathy and sincere condolences on the passing of Granny Lou. Louanne was one of the first Manfam folks I met some 37 years ago, and she always helped me to figure out who everyone was and how they were all connected–she was an authentic person who loved her family dearly. I loved her spirit and her tenacity–both traits which I have witnessed live on in her children and grandchildren. Fondly, Ruth and Dirck

  9. I’m so sorry to hear of your moms passing. Some of the best times of my life were playing “grown up” at the lake with the “lake crew” (our group and our parents group). One always felt welcome at Allofus.

    We had many special moments at Allofus and Lou Lou made us all feel right at home.
    Her Smart Party was the best of the summer and the trampoline a focal point from when I was young and on to my kids; we have missed Lou and Hugh !

    Condolences to Hugh, Nancy/Gregg, Susan/Warren, Mike/Ellen, Margo/Tim, Marianne/Bill and your children.
    Louanne was a fixture in the Wilson family for decades and although perhaps best remembered for her sense of fun (and everything that went along with that), she will also be remembered for her helping hand/presence whenever we were in a bit of a bind – one little example being when she picked me up from St. Augustine every day (in one of her fancy cars!) for a 2 month stint when I had a cast on my leg.
