Love this picture of Lorraine – it is exactly as
I remember her. R.I.P. my old, dear friend. So sorry to her about Joyce – they were such constant and true friends to each other.

My Mother was Lorraines best friend at PVT.. Mom is very upset with her passing and wanted me to tell you she is so very sorry and she did what she could for her. She will miss her she said. Our condolences to you all. Sylvia and family.

Brone, Lesley, Stuart and family,
Mom and I are so sorry to hear of Lorraine’s passing. Mom has Alzheimer’s disease and when she talks about Lorraine, it’s about the early days when they were growing up and when we were kids. I hope your happy memories help you through this difficult time, our thoughts are with you.

Brone, Lesley and Stuart

We were sad to hear of your tremendous loss. Lorraine was so special to you and we were all so fond of her. Be assured that while we can’t be with you today, our prayer thoughts are there.

I am so sorry to know of Lorraine’s passing.
My Sincerest Condolences.

Dear Brone ,and family’,
I’m sorry I can’t be there with you all at this sad time. I have great memories of our days of family camping at Bellevue Beach and going out on Conception Bay in the boats. I also remember the dog walks that Lorraine and I had on Saturday mornings one fall. She was a good friend! You have my heartfelt sympathy and I hope to see you if I get home in the fall.

To Brone and family:
Sincere sympathy to you on the loss of your loved one. It is a difficult journey to travel. May your memories help you through this time of loss.

We are shocked and very sad to learn of Lorraine’s passing. We worked together for many years at Carling O’Keefe Breweries and quickly became fast friends. We shared so many fun-filled memories like the time we all wore “hot pants” to the office – not heard of at that time – but we thought we were trailblazers. Lorraine loved a bit of fun, sharing a joke, and the long, laugh- filled lunches we took on Fridays. Our most sincere sympathy goes to Brone, Leslie, Stuar,t and,. of course, Lauren and to Joyce as well. We know Lorraine will be missed. Flo Evans and Justin Conway
