Lorraine passed away peacefully on December 31, 2013 being lovingly cared for at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home.

Deeply loved and missed by daughter Sandra (Barry), son Richard (Diana), sister Madeleine and brother Paul (Suzanne). Her memory will be cherished by her grandchildren Ryan, Jaymie (Roy), Kai and Isis, great-granddaughters Elizibeth and Claire and numerous loving family members.

She was predeceased by her husband Eric "Rick", her parents Robert and Yvonne and sister Pauline.

Lorraine was born May 16, 1927 in Legal, Alberta, her family moved to Edmonton in 1942. She obtained her training as a radiology technician from the old Misericordia Hospital. She came to work at Royal Inland Hospital after graduating, meeting Eric on a blind date and they married in 1954. After raising their children she returned to work at Tranquille being able to operate the old x-ray equipment and develop her own films. Her green thumb was evident in the most incredible flower and vegetable gardens. We all enjoyed her breads, baking and home preserves. Her petit point adorned most of the walls in their home. Lorraine lived a full life with Eric by her side- fishing, camping, curling, golfing, playing bridge and travelling.

Many heartfelt thanks to Sandy and Dr. H. Stefanyk. Words cannot express our appreciation and gratitude of the staff and volunteers at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home for their care of mom and us during her stay.

She leaves us as she lived
her life....with grace and dignity, always a lady.

At Lorraine's request there will be no service.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House, 72 Whiteshield Crescent S., Kamloops, B.C. V2E 2S9.
