It is with sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Loretta May Palmier (Lewis). She was promoted to glory the evening of July 15, 2020.

Loretta will be missed dearly by her husband of 53 years Denis Palmier, children Trevor Palmier (Dianne), Michelle Johns (Dwayne) and Stephanie Iverson (Rob); grandchildren Elijah Palmier, Joshua (Ashley) Johns, Jordan (Kaleigh) Johns, Alexandra Thomson, Christian Thomson, Caleb Thomson & Robbie Iverson; great grandchildren Brady, Avery & Sydney Jenkins, Luka Johns and Louis Johns; brother Doug Lewis(Norma), sister Eileen Demko and several nieces, nephews friends and family.

Loretta was predeceased by her parents Arthur Hector and Ella Lewis, brothers Bill Lewis, Bob Lewis, Jack Lewis, Sisters Evelyn Dunn, Phyllis Rose and granddaughter Alyssa Jenkins.

Loretta was born May 14, 1946 and raised in Sovereign, SK. She was the second youngest of 8 children. She attended secretarial college in Saskatoon and graduated in 1965. She met the love of her life, Denis, while working for the Dean of Arts & Science at the University of Saskatchewan. They were married and moved to Fort Qu’Appelle in 1967. Together Denis and Loretta raised 3 children. She was a meticulous homemaker, seamstress and helped in the family drugstore when needed. Loretta loved music and was a talented pianist. She took pride in serving the church as a pianist, hosting bible studies and having guests for dinner. She enjoyed family ski vacations and trips to Disney. Later in life she enjoyed winters in Palm Springs and other travels with good friends. Her children and grandchildren were her pride and joy.

The family would like to thank everyone for their prayers and well wishes. Also, for those that were there when mom needed care or Denis needed a meal. We are so thankful she was able to spend her days in the home she and Denis built together.

The Celebration of Life will be at 2:00, Tuesday, July 21st, Valley Alliance Church, Fort Qu’Appelle, SK. Following the funeral service there will be an interment at 3:00 PM at Lakeview Cemetery, Fort Qu'Appelle, Saskatchewan
