Loving mother of Stan and Greg, mother-in-law to Susan and Donna, sister to Wanda Tobias and Grandmother to Adam, Michael (Tianna) and Matthew (Emma). She will be remembered by many nieces and nephews.
Laura emigrated from Poland in 1930 with her mother Agnes Adamczyk and her sisters Sophie Czuba and Helen Wahl. The family reunited with their husband / father, Walter Adamczyk and settled in Toronto.
Laura loved to dance and sing. She passed a lot of time by walking from her home in Etobicoke to downtown Toronto and back. She tried golfing and horse back riding later in life. She loved to attend parades, cultural events and live theatre. She was a strong supporter of activities supporting persons with special needs. Laura always gave everyone the best advise by saying “do what you like.”
We will miss her dearly but we were fortunate to have her with us for ninety-six wonderful years. Love you Babcia!
