Donna, Lorna, and family. Just heard of your Mom’s passing. She was such a sweet lady. I had many a chat with her when delivering her favourite lipstick. 😊 I will treasure those times. She will be surely missed. Sending you positive energy during this difficult time.

We are saddened to hear of the passing of Lorna, a truly beautiful lady. We shared many wonderful experiences with her and Heber during those years when we were involved in the NTA. They were a very inspiring couple and we cherish their memory.

Lorna, Donna, Robin and all of Lorna’s family, our sincerest condolences on the passing of your beautiful Mom. St. Philip’s and St. Philip’s Church family was vastly blessed with the wonderful talents, patience, and love your Mom bestowed on all of us, especially the chikdren. The teaching, patience, encouragement, love, and pride she had for our children was beyond measure; and so many children became successful, confident adukts because of her. She was a talented writer, musician, baker, gardener, Mom, Grandmother, and so, so much more. As I think of her now, as I often do, and reminesce, I have so many wonderful memories of this beautiful woman. When your family first moved to St. Philip’s, your Mom started working at the Royal Stores in the Avalon Mall, where I was working for the summer, my first real job, as a teenager, before college. Later, Ren worked there also. She had just moved to St. Philip’s and used to ask me lots of questions; we shared a special bond.. We were on many Church committees together, the closest being many years of Junior Choir and a Lenten Cafe team. I can’t express enough the importance, love, pride she had in my two sons, Richard and Timothy.. The encouragement and confidence she instilled in them can never be replaced. Much love to you Mrs. Walters. You’ll now be playing the organ and encouraging singing in heaven. God Bless you all. Sent on behalf of myself, Richard, snd Timiothy.

Roy and Marilyn, our sincere condolences to you and all your Family on your mother
