Happy 50th, Laura.

Today, Laura would have been 50 years old.

For those who don’t know the backstory, I’ve always called Laura my sister. Technically, she was my sister-in-law but I have known her since I was 12 or 13. We were also friends in our own right through soccer & field hockey.

Laura was a Toronto police officer recently returned from maternity leave. While responding to an emergency burglary call for an elderly woman, her vehicle was hit by a civilian. Her police cruiser spun, throwing her partner from the vehicle but wrapping her around a tree. The civilian was never charged with anything, not even failing to yield to the emergency vehicle.

Laura with Paige, only hours old.

A new mother, a caring sister, a supportive daughter, a good friend, a loving wife and a great police officer, her life was tragically cut short and we miss her. .

Laura J Ellis, nee Sharp

November 2, 1970 – February 18, 2001

Rest In Peace
