Louise Leyland

Obituary of Louise Carmen Leyland

LEYLAND, Louise Carmen (née Romeo); While enjoying her much loved daily walks around Queenston, she was fatally struck by a bicycle on April 1 at the age of 81. Loving wife of Don, beloved mother of Sean and Tyler, and sister of Joseph (Mary). She will be sorely missed by her family, cousins, nieces, nephews, and a multitude of friends.


Louise will be remembered for her generosity of spirit, her dynamism and her passion. A retired teacher and mentor to student interpreters at Queenston Heights, she loved interpreting local history to adults and students alike. She was able to captivate audiences with her energetic tours and explanations that brought history to life.


A long-time resident of Niagara-on-the-Lake, she was a member of the Board of Directors of the Friends of Fort George, as well as the Political Action Committee of the Retired Teachers Organization. She enjoyed her book club, current affairs group, and was dedicated to giving back to the community by sharing her Reiki practice at Wellspring Cancer Support Niagara.


Louise touched the lives of everyone around her. She made a positive impact on her community and everyone she met. We will miss her dearly and remember her always.


Memory comments may be left on the website of George Darte Funeral Chapel (GDFC) 585 Carlton St., St. Catharines. There will be a gravesite ceremony for immediate family, which may be viewed on the GDFC website. A Celebration of life is planned for mid-May and details may also be found on the GDFC at a later time.
