They later moved to Bonnyville and loved time on the lake. Lorraine spent her last years in the Cochrane area with her children’s families and grandchildren.

Lorraine is survived by her son Stuart (Caroline) and their son Julian; daughter, Lisa (Devon) and their children Rune and Maeve; sisters, Barb, Patricia, Elaine, Sharon (Bob), Dolly (Jos); brothers, Francis and Dennis, and numerous extended family.
