Obituary of Lorette Marie Hambly (nee Coutu)

July 15, 1931 - St. Paul, Alberta

January 10, 2022 - Calgary, Alberta


It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of Lorette Hambly of Calgary, AB, on Monday, January 10, 2022 at the age of 90 years.


Lorette was born in St. Paul, Alberta on July 15, 1931. She moved to Calgary as a young woman to start a career with the federal government and later as a teller with various banks. Lorette married Roger Hambly in 1959 and enjoyed 49 years of marriage. From an early age she loved to curl and golf and in her later years she enjoyed gathering with friends to play cards. Spending time with her grandchildren always brought joy.


Lorette is survived by her three adoring children, Chris (Judy), Dave, Simone (Marc); grandchildren, Danielle and Regan; sister, Yvonne Joly (deceased January 14, 2022); as well as an abundance of lovely nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. Lorette was predeceased by her spouse Roger, her parents, Emelia and Paul Albert Coutu; her brothers, Emile, Henri, Herve, Hector, Arthur, Adelard, Roger, Laurent, Rene, Alphonse and Rodolphe; and sisters, Odelie Gervais and Lucie Owen.


A Celebration of Lorette’s Life will be held in Calgary in the spring. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to The Alzheimer Society or to a charity of the donor’s choice.
