It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Angela McLeod, nee LaFreniere. Angela passed away peacefully on April 14th, 2018 at the age of 89 years. She will be sadly missed by her daughter Judy L’Heureux (Louis), her grandson Scotty (Brooke), great-grandchildren MacKenzie, Taylor and Jayden and her granddaughter Rene (Evan Rossette), her son Brad (Karen), her grandchildren Sarah (Dillan Russell) and Sean. She will also be remembered by her brother Leo LaFreniere, sister Eileen Hagen (Ron), brother-in-law Ellis Knutson, sister-in-law Lorena LaFreniere and special nephew Kim LaFreniere. She was predeceased by her husband Angus McLeod, parents Frank and Allie LaFreniere (Attrux), brother Lloyd LaFreniere, sister and brother-in-law Blanche and Pete Saccucci, sister Shirley LaFreniere and sister Lorraine Knutson and the three McLeod brothers-in-law and their wives Norman (Wilma), Donald (Florence) and Ian (Cecile). Angela was born on October 16th, 1928 on the family farm in the Lorenzo district. She worked on the farm and in the family grocery store until 1955 when she married Angus McLeod from Mullingar. Together they worked in the Mullingar store, owned by Angus’s family, and in 1965 purchased Victoria Supply in North Battleford. In 1957 their daughter Judy was born and in 1960 they welcomed Brad. In 1975 the store was sold to their delivery boy Terry Christianson and Angela continued to work there until 1985. Angus passed away in 1980. Angela was very proud of the fact that she got her driver’s license at the age of 52. For the next several years Angela enjoyed her time travelling the world with friends and family, working in the yard and garden and spending time with her children and grandchildren. Family get-togethers were her favourite time. She also enjoyed volunteering for the Legion Ladies Auxiliary, District Care and canvassing for various charities. She received the Legion Auxiliary Certificate of Merit for her contributions as a volunteer and was a flagbearer for ten years on Remembrance Day. In 2011 she was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and moved to Harwood Manor in 2014. She loved being at Harwood and was very popular with the staff and residents. She will always be remembered for her wit, spunky sense of humour, patience and positive attitude. Donations in her memory may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Visitation will be held on Tuesday, April 17th, 2018 from 5:00 to 7:00 pm at Sallows & McDonald – Wilson & Zehner. Memorial Service will be on Saturday, April 21st, 2018 at 1:00 pm also at Sallows & McDonald – Wilson & Zehner Funeral Home with Rev. Frances Patterson officiating.
