So sorry to hear of Lolly’s passing our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this sad time . So sorry we are unable to be with you all as you know we are in New Brunswick visiting the children at this time . We will call when we get home love Faith Gerald and family

Lolly will forever be in our thoughts and in our hearts as such a kind and gentle soul, always with a smile, always with cheer.

A dear and lifelong friend to Barbara, and GodMother to Derek, she will be sadly missed. Lolly and Barbara were born one week apart, into families that were close friends and neighbours on Torbay Road. They became friends at a very young age, went to school together and were involved in activities through St. Thomas’ Church. That friendship has been cultivated over a lifetime and has grown to include others in our families. We are truly blessed. We celebrate her life, and how it enriched our own lives and of so many that she touched.

Our thoughts, prayers and deepest sympathies to Gus, Chris, Paul, and Dawn, and all in your family and close circles of friends.

With Love, from Barbara and Roly Peddle; Janice (Peddle) and Andrew Kurmey; Derek and Pauline Peddle, and families – Lethbridge, Alberta.
