Osborne, Laureen

June 16, 1957 to November 10, 2016

A Life of Passion

Laureen’s year long journey with cancer has ended. With her husband by her side, Laureen drew her last, peaceful breath. She had been surrounded all week by family, friends and caring members of her Sangha community that shared their love and support during her last difficult days. Dog lover, dog groomer, lecturer, author, painter and Dharma teacher, Laureen’s short life was full of accomplishments that grew from her many talents and passions. She will be dearly missed by her beloved husband Rick Gumbs, step-daughter Kristen Cinnamon (Devon), grandchildren Paige and Owen, brother Stephen Osborne (Louise Normand), niece Christina Osborne (Justin Labrecque), mother-in-law Patricia Gumbs; sisters-in-law Wendy Redway and Linda Weshefshky (Tony), brother-in-law David Gumbs (Elizabeth), nieces Amanda and Diana, nephews Brandon and Austin, the entire extended Gumbs and Osborne Families, special friends Lynda and Jim Lennox, and especially all her dear loving friends at The Ottawa Pagoda Sangha. Visitation will be held at the
