Lore was born in Grenfell Saskatchewan on April 8, 1928. She lived on a farm outside of Oakshela, Saskatchewan with her parents and siblings which she often talked about and which, no doubt, were a heavy influence on her strong character, perseverance, and hard-working attitude she maintained her entire life. When she became of age, she moved off the farm to start a career as a nursing aid at the Vancouver General Hospital for a number of years and made many lasting friendships. She eventually moved to Montreal to gain different experiences but ultimately moved back to Vancouver where soon after, she met Howard and they were married. Howard had a farm near Wetaskiwin she quickly became immersed in, and developed strong ties to, the local church and the wider community. She loved and was proud of producing their own food on the farm, being as self-sustaining as possible and was a wonderful cook which the family always took full advantage of! Lore treasured her family the most and was extremely proud of everyone.
A Funeral Service will be held at Zion Lutheran Church in Wetaskiwin on Saturday, February 3 at 11:00 a.m. with an interment to follow at St. John's Cemetery alongside her husband.
