RALSTON, Louise Patricia I passed away on July 13, 2011 from an aggressive form of lymphoma. I am predeceased by my parents (Eva and Rene Lessard of Edmonton, Alberta). I leave to mourn my beloved husband Jim - loving, caring, funny, my best friend; our wonderful children, Laurel and Phillip - no parents could ask for better children; our loving families out West, both Lessard and Ralston; my very dear close friend Anna Herauf; and many loving and caring friends. Jim and I want to thank the nurses, doctors and other staff at the Ottawa Hospital for the excellent care they provided. Life was a blast, just way too short! Visitation will be held on Thursday, July 21 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Hulse, Playfair & McGarry St. Laurent Chapel, 1200 Ogilvie Road, (at Aviation Parkway), Ottawa. A Memorial Service will be held in the Chapel on Friday, July 22 at 11:00 a.m. There will be no reception. A private inurnment will follow the Memorial Service. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to the charity of your choice.
