Karen L. Hamilton-Furlotte
The death of Karen L. Hamilton-Furlotte of Fredericton, NB, wife of Allen J. Furlotte (A.J.) occurred at home on Sunday, May 9th, 2004 surrounded by her loving husband and friends. Born in Chapleau, Quebec and was the daughter of Charles Drummond and the late Florence (McCord) Laviolette.
As the only girl in a family that included three brothers, she described herself as a tomboy in her early years. The tomboy became a lovely young woman whose natural beauty and presence brought her to the attention of modeling and talent agencies in Vancouver. She accumulated acting and commercial credits in film, television, theatre, radio and print. Karen's career choice, however, took her in a different direction. It was natural for a daughter who greatly admired her father to join the staff of Canadian Pacific Airlines, where he was employed as a commercial pilot. Karen worked for that company for 23 years serving as a flight attendant, a purser, and a Flight Attendant Group Training Instructor. She also served as Assistant Supervisor of Personnel and Senior Hostess for the Canadian Pacific Pavilion at Expo'86. She was also a licensed private pilot.
Karen left Canadian Pacific Airlines, and Vancouver in 1991 to make Fredericton, New Brunswick her home. For a period of approximately 5 years she worked part-time as a Co-ordinator of Special Projects for the Radio Atlantic Group, and devoted significant time as a volunteer to a number of community activities. In 1993, seeking new challenges, Karen attended Saint Thomas University in Fredericton. She was awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science in 1996. Karen went on to acquire a law degree from the University of New Brunswick in 1998 completing a four year undergraduate degree in three years and achieved the highest marks in New Brunswick on the Bar Exam. Karen became a member of the Law Society of New Brunswick in 1999 and immediately joined the Fredericton law firm of Cox Hanson O'Reilly Matheson as an Associate in its Insurance Litigation Department. In May 2001 she accepted a position with the New Brunswick Department of Justice, where she served as a Deputy Superintendent of Insurance until her death. In 2001 she also met her future husband, Allen J. Furlotte (A.J.). Karen and Allen were married in December 10th, 2003.
Throughout her time in Fredericton, involvement in the community was an important part of Karen's life. She served as an ESL tutor for the Multicultural Association of Fredericton, a Junior Achievement Company Program Advisor, a committee member of the Fredericton Region Habitat for Humanity, and a Board member and Vice-President/Secretary of the Fredericton Emergency Shelter.
Karen was highly respected by her colleagues for her intellect, her integrity, and the courtesy she extended to everyone with whom she dealt. To all who knew and loved her Karen also will be remembered for her energy, her enthusiasm, her wonderful sense of fun, and her caring nature, as well as for the strength and dignity with which she lived the last months of her life.
Karen is survived by her loving husband Allen, her father, Charles Drummond of Langley, BC, her two brothers, Michael Laviolette and his wife Sunshine Kessler of Vancouver, BC, and John Laviolette of Vancouver, BC. She was predeceased by her mother, and one brother, Steven Laviolette.
The family will receive visitors at River Valley Funeral Services, 50 Avonlea Ct., Fredericton, NB, (455-4267) on Wednesday May 12th, 2004 from 2-4 and 7-9 PM.
