It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Christine Ursula LaPorte of Coleman, Alberta who succumbed to her illness on August 19, 2019 at the age of 68 years.
Born on June 8, 1951 in Germany, Christine was raised to appreciate the gifts she was given rather than grieve for what she could not have. She blossomed into a graceful and lovely young lady who fell in love and was blessed with a family of her own to cherish and nurture. Christine was generous and compassionate; she had a soft spot in her heart caring for animals in distress. She also enjoyed bingo, Big Macs, Elvis, an evening beer in front the TV, scary movies and most of all, time spent with her family. Christine was a wonderful lady, a devoted mother and grandmother and a dear friend to many. She will be fondly remembered and greatly missed.
She is survived by her sons, Jim (Luong) Braun of Calgary and Pat (Annette) LaPorte of Hillcrest; her granddaughters, Shawna and Shannon of Calgary; and her extended family and friends.
She was predeceased by her guardian angel, Ella Braun and her parents.
A Graveside Service will be held on Sunday, August 25, 2019 at 1 pm in the Passburg Union Cemetery. Donations in memory of the late Christine LaPorte may be directed to your local SPCA animal shelter or the Canadian Cancer Society. Condolences may be registered at www.fantinsfuneralchapel.ca.
