Reeve, Laurie:

Passed away peacefully at home on June 24, 2020, surrounded by family at the age of 66 after a short battle with cancer.
Laurie was a life long learner and educator. Award-winning gardener, a voracious reader, had a dry wit and a ready laugh but most importantly she was a wife, mother, sister, grandmother, aunt, daughter, confidante and friend. Laurie was born in Harriston, Ontario on March 31, 1954, to Dorothy Dewbury (Papa Huck) and Harold Machan and was the older sister to Judy Moore.

Laurie was among the first graduates from the Conestoga College Guelph Diploma RN program in 1975 and spent 40 years working as a Registered Nurse and in a variety of settings, working the majority of her career at Grand River Hospital Freeport site. Laurie worked in many settings, but settled into her niche working in Palliative Care and complex medical units. Laurie worked her last 16 years as a Resource Nurse where she touched the lives of so many people!

Laurie is survived by her beloved husband Michael Reeve and seven children, Andrew Bridge (Maria-Louisa), Meaghan Bridge, Lisa Bridge (Glenn Briere), Julie Komsic (Viktor), Pauline Reeve, Daniel Reeve (Quan) and Katherine Reeve. The cherished older sister to Judy Moore (Gary). Laurie will be missed by many grandchildren, Dylan, Kieran (predeceased), Cody, Hayden, Jaxen, Lucas, Maxwell, Nickolas, Allyson, Mackenzie, Aedan, Anthony, Avery and Gryffin. Laurie also had many nieces and nephews and extended family that remember her fondly.

Laurie's family will receive relatives and friends from 2:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. on Friday, June 26, 2020 at the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 507 Frederick Street, Kitchener, 519-749-8467.

My dearest condolences to her husband and children as well as the entire family as I was shocked at learning of her passing. I had the pleasure of working with Laurie on the palliative care unit and complex care during my tenure at the Freeport Hospital during my nursing career. She was a kind and loving person as well as a great role model, never to busy to help others. Her niche was definitely in the palliative setting and all of us benefited from her expertise. Rest in peace among the angels, Laurie! Theresa

My deepest sympathy to Laurie's family. I met Laurie when I first started working at Freeport. We started the same year but just a few months apart. The year we started was the year that Freeport was starting to prepare for the "new" Freeport Hospital. She left a great impression on me. She was quiet, compassionate, knowledgeable and was always a team player. The year we started was the year that Freeport was preparing for the "new" Freeport Hospital. We worked our night shifts together. Talked about lots. We were both raising families at that time. Later on in our careers I would have the privilege of meeting Laurie's daughter, Lisa, in the "new" Freeport Hospital. We worked a few years together before I retired. It was apparent that what Laurie thought, taught and lived was instilled in her daughter. Laurie was an incredible woman who had a heart of gold and always put others first. She was soft spoken and a kind and gentle soul. Treasure your memories. It is not what she took with her, rather what she left behind that is so great and powerful. (memories, life lessons and experiences for others to learn by.) Once again, my very deepest sympathy to Laurie's family. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

May I extend deepest condolences to Laurie's entire family.
Laurie was our resource nurse for many years on the Palliative and Complex Medical - Ventilatory Support units at Freeport . But in reality she was our Rock. Everyone knows she was brilliant, but much more importantly she was wise. When I walked into a contentious meeting and saw Laurie there , composed, calm, with notebook open, I knew it would be okay. She was my mentor and as a nurse, Laurie taught me so much being a social worker and a good person.
My heart is with Laurie's family today. May she rest in peace and love.
