HARRIS, Laura Maria (nee Domenicucci)

December 4, 1953 – Port Colborne, Ontario
February 25, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta

Laura Maria Harris, of Calgary, AB passed away on Monday, February 25, 2019 at the age of 65 years after a long, courageous battle with dementia.

Laura lived her life with spirit, strength, and unbridled love for those she held close. An avid traveler for work and pleasure, there was no trip she enjoyed more than the spontaneous ones with her daughter. She taught those around her to laugh loudly, care deeply, and live fully. She was the wittiest person you knew, and always had a sparkle in her eye.

Laura was the youngest of four children, growing up in Port Colborne, ON and meeting her partner in love for thirty-three years, Ed, in Niagara Falls, ON. Opportunity took them west where they settled in Calgary and welcomed their only daughter, Nikki. Laura worked hard, and earned great respect and much success in the world of corporate travel management.

She will be forever remembered by her daughter and best friend, Nicolette. Laura is survived by her former spouse and partner in parenthood Ed, her niece Giulia (Cathy), her loving friend Beverly (Dave), brother Luigi (Nancy), sister Anna (Mario), and numerous nieces and nephews.

Laura was predeceased by her parents Lidia and Giovanni, and her protective big brother Antonio “Tony”.

An abundance of gratitude is given to the Doctors and Nurses at Carewest Garrison Green, as well as Laura’s good friend and companion Margaret. The care and love she was given in her battle was life changing for her and her family

The family has chosen to celebrate her life privately, and encourages those who wish to pay respects to gather with loved ones over a great meal with lots of laughs.
