  1. I have been talking with my sister Barbara Lindeburg about our Auntie Lorraine. I was named for her with my second name being Lorraine and Barb and I together we have many memories of visiting with Auntie Lorraine here in Calgary and in Souris. She stands out in our memories about her and the family being thankful for her character and many moments with her over the years. We will miss her.

  2. Tim and family,
    So sorry to hear of the passing of your Mother. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this sad time.

  3. Lorraine was our last Aunt to leave this world. Her obituary, sent from a friend in Minnedosa, brought back many memories, of good times spent with Reg and Lorraine, and how loyal they were when my Dad was ill.We are thinking of you with sadness. Carol
