It is with great sadness that the family of Louvaine Dorothy Molnar sister, mother, aunt, grandmother, gigi, friend announces her passing. On Saturday, June, 4, 2016 Lou passed into the arms of the Lord and her loving husband

Wilf. Lou left us from the ICU at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital surrounded by her loving family, listening to some of her favourite songs being sung by her grandchildren, stories, laughter and tears.

Lou was born in Michel, BC to Domnic and Vittoria Fontana on September 2, 1933. Lou and her siblings were orphaned at a very early stage in their lives, but used the tragedy to strengthen their lives and their familial bond. Lou met her future husband Wilf in the late 40’s and married in November of 1952. Lou and Wilf chose to live and raise their family in Cranbrook.

Mom enjoyed her extensive family and her garden and maintained a strong faith throughout her life.
