Memories of my Aunty Lorraine are unforgettable. When Aunty and uncle first moved to the coast. My parents Armand and Jean Verot and I went to the island to take in all the attractions eg: butchard gardens. We camped and had many fun evenings laughing and reminiscing. Will laugh with you always aunty.❤️My condolences to Gary, Ron, Sherry, Allison and Corine

Aunty Lorraine was one of a kind. She has left me a ton of memories. As a kid she would take me to Kenosee Lake every summer just so Allison would have someone to hangout with. I loved it! Later on when I was hair dressing I flew to Calgary and spent time with her learning how to color code people and do makeup. She was quite a talented lady .... sewing purses , clothes and doing water color paintings . She will be missed! Our sincere sympathy to Uncle Howard, Gary, Ron, Sherry, Allison, Corrine and families! With much love, Shannon & Paul
