GRATTON, Lauretta


With very heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Lauretta Gratton, on Saturday, June 10, 2017.

She was the loyal wife to her husband Morris for 64 years. Loving and devoted mother to her son Mark and first-class mother-in-law to his wife Carrianne. There was hardly any greater joy in her life than her three grandchildren, Emily, Ethan and Ella of whom she was so very proud.

She was so loved by her siblings and their spouses, Ken and Gail Boomhower, Hazel and the late Syd Cove, Barbara and Gordon Harriman, the late Shirley and the late Ivor Aubin, the late Doreen Conrow, the late Eleanor Davidson and her brothers-in-law and their spouses, Wayne and the late Lorna Gratton, Rhodom and Trudy Conrow, and the late Don Gratton.

She leaves a hole in the heart of so many nieces, nephews, and many, many good friends.

Lauretta loved to pamper, she was so generous, and she endeared herself to everyone around her.  She will be happy once more when Jehovah God brings her back to life as a perfect young woman who can again use her strength and vitality to do his will on a paradise earth.

Morris, Mark and Carrianne would like to especially thank her niece Dawn, for doing all she could to make the last 6 months of Lauretta’s life as joyful as she could.

Memorial service to be held on Friday, June 16, 2017 at 7 pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses (742 Third Line East, Sault Ste. Marie).
