Laura Shirley Ellis (nee Willis)

succumbed to dementia on March 4th, 2020
at West Lake Terrace Nursing Home, Picton
She has joined all of her siblings Gorden, Alfred, Mable, Francis, May, Clara and Joy
and her son, Randy.
She was born in Sudbury and moved to Belleville when a teenager to work at Bell Shirt.
Through a friend, she met Ray, married and became a farmer’s wife on what is now Danforth Road.
They moved to Wellington once Ray was employed as a truck driver.
She became a stay at home mom, then worked a few years at the Campbell Soup Mushroom Plant.
Laura travelled with Ray to the West coast, Florida, Virginia, and the East Coast.
She enjoyed her Tuesday afternoons with the coffee ladies.
Leaving to mourn her is Raymond, her husband of 68 years,
and their daughter Sharon (Jim) Dempsey.
Her Grandchildren, Halisha (Pat), Christopher, Kailey (Rob), Mekenzie (Ron), Jared (Sol)
and great grandchildren, Kirsten, Zachary, Avaley, Chase, Brayson, Ezri, Niko, Gavin, Penelope, Lenna, and Jesse.
She has many nieces and nephews that will surely miss her.
She will be remembered by step-grandson John Dempsey (Monique and family, Tomas,

Of course, we cannot forget her fur baby, Maggie.
