Wallie Laflamme of Calgary, passed away peacefully with her loving family by her side Friday, October 24, 2008 at the age of 85.
Wallie was a pioneering business woman, opening the first of several beauty salons while only in her early 20’s. Her love of the arts then lead her to establish Laflamme Galleries, where she introduced many new Canadian artists. After a brief retirement, her entrepreneurial spirit continued into its seventh decade, as she enthusiastically launched her Usana nutritional business. She excelled, becoming a Gold director, with a down line of over 1,500 people and was a much in demand guest speaker at company rally’s until the time she entered Foothills Hospital.
Wallie was an amazing career woman who lived her life with great persistence and perseverance which were trademarks of her “never let age be your cage” attitude. Family, friends and a lifetime of loyal clients will miss her dearly.
Wallie is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Roux and Kippy Laflame of Palm Springs, CA. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Foch Laflamme in 2006.
