In Loving Memory ~

Laura Marie Birukow (nee Mazza), of Trail, BC, was born November 7, 1931 in Fort William, ON and passed away on May 19, 2024.

She was predeceased by the love of her life, husband of 66 years, Alex Birukow Sr.

Laura moved to Trail in 1955 with Alex and children, Susan and Alex Jr. Two more children, Anne and Paul, were born in Trail.

She gave years of unselfish service to Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church and the CWL. She also spent time volunteering as a porter at the Trail Regional Hospital and the Food Bank. She was unflinchingly stubborn and devoted to helping others.

She is survived by her children; Susan (Barry), Alex Jr. (Patti), Anne (Willy), Paul (Pat), all her grandchildren and great-grandson.

We loved her and will miss her.

The family would like to thank the staff at Castlewood Village, Dr. Dalla Lana, and the nursing staff at Silver Kettle Village in Grand Forks.

A private family graveside service will be held at Mountain View Cemetery at a later date. Gwen Ziprick of Clarks Funeral Services has been entrusted with the funeral arrangements.
