KIESER, Laura Marie (nee: Van Brabant)


Kieser, Laura

April 4, 1923 -February 27, 2021

Peacefully surrounded by the love and prayers of her family, Mom passed away February 27, 2021 at the age of 97 years. 

She will be lovingly remembered by her six children, Claire (Tony) Stitsen, Joyce (Marvin) Brenneis, Gordon (Fran) Kieser, Marlene (David) Andrews, Ronald (Karen) Kieser and Dale (Nadine) Kieser as well as 25 grandchildren and 57 great grandchildren, many nieces and nephews, her sisters-in-law, Madeleine and Evelyn Van Brabant.  She was predeceased by her husband Robert of 56 years, her grandson Robbie Kieser, great grandson Eli Hoven, her brothers Romain, Albert, Andrew and Maurice, her sister Madeline and her parents Aime and Clara.

Our mother will always be remembered for modelling her unconditional love for her family.  Her strong faith and devotion to the Rosary has brought blessings to our family.  Mom was an active member of St. Charles Parish and a CWL member for 60 years.  Her service to her church (Mearns) and her community was a legacy which she continued on at the Heritage Lodge in Morinville where she resided for 12 years until her passing.  Mom wrapped us in her warm love with the quilts she crocheted and filled us with her delicious cinnamon buns and date squares.  She was loved by many.
