Lorraine was born on April 13, 1935 in the town of Davidson. She spent much of her youth living in rural Saskatchewan until settling in Moose Jaw where she met her husband Rudy. They were married in 1954. They moved from Saskatchewan to Alberta in 1965 and chose to settle in Lethbridge. As an individual, spouse and parent, she was largely involved in local sports, spending many of her hours playing and volunteering. Her largest interests included curling, softball and bingo. Her largest role in life was being a mother (to everyone). She kept her warmest smiles and biggest hugs for her children and grandchildren. The world was a better place for having her in it. We all love and miss you.
