February 10, 1948 – February 2, 2022
Louise Grace Josephson (Laybourne) passed away at the Golden and District Hospital, Wednesday February 2, 2022 at the age of 73 years. Just 8 days short of her 74th birthday.
Louise was born in Kaslo, BC February10, 1948. At about the age of 7 or so her family moved from New Denver, BC to the Golden area. Golden is pretty much where Louise spent her life. Nicholson is where she met her love, Lawrence. The story in the family goes, she was walking with her younger brother LeRoy back to their home in Days subdivision, when this “guy” pulls up along side her asks her, “Would your son like to join my baseball team?”. I guess whatever worked to get a girls name and number is what my dad tried. Well I guessed it worked for her. They were married in March of 1968. Just a few years later their daughter, Janet was born and 4 years after their son, Daniel was born.
She leaves memories with her brother LeRoy (Linda) Laybourne of Castlegar, BC, her daughter Janet (Wayne) Banta of Beaverlodge, AB, her son Daniel Josephson of Golden, BC. She also leaves memories with her greatest pride and joy next to her own childeren, her grand boys, who she so loved dearly. She will be missed by Talus Josephson (Golden, BC), Blake Banta (Beaverlodge, AB) and the youngest Cole Josephson (Tahsis, BC).
Louise was predeceased by her parents Roy Laybourne, Maxine and Harvey (step father) Schram and her husband Lawrence (Toby) Josephson.
Louise will be placed alongside her husband later this summer at a private family gathering at the Golden Cemetery.
