1956 ~ 2005
It is with great sadness we announce that Thursday, March 10th, 2005 at the far too young age of 48 Luann passed away at the Victoria General Hospital. Born in Comox October 7th, 1956 Luann was an instant Star!! She would dance, joke and smile her way into your heart like it or not.
Luann was the middle child from a family of 5 children. Sadly Luann was predeceased by both parents, Shadow and Lodar Garseth.
Luann leaves behind two sisters Darlene Shackelly and Lynn Lidberg (Mike) and two brothers: Charlie Timmons and Garth Garseth; nieces: Monica, Naomi, Aina and Tanja; nephews: Darryl, Kristinn, Rick, Brandon, Calvin and Fredrick; as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Luann’s favorite things were dancing and if you have ever had the pleasure of being her partner you know that she required a lot of room because she put her whole self into it! Also Luann had a great love for baseball, if she wasn’t playing she was watching it on TV. This was very serious business and if you had anything to say to Luann you pretty much had to wait until the end of the season. In the off-season you could often find Luann at the Bingo Hall with her favorite aunt. We hope that there is good music, baseball and bingo in heaven or else Luann won’t know what to do with herself.
We would like to thank the wonderful staff at both Campbell River and Victoria General Hospitals for theie wonderful kindness and support to both Luann and us during this very difficult time.
Please join us this Saturday, March 19th at the Band Hall on the Comox Reserve at 1:00 o’clock. We can share our memories and celebrate the life of a very special person. In lieu of flowers anyone who wishes can make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society.
