Straughan, Lorraine Joan


October 12, 1926 – June 15, 2016  

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother, Lorraine. She was born in Prince George BC. but spent her childhood years in McBride and Tete Jaune. She then returned to Prince George, where she met and married the love of her life, Rex. They spent the next 12  years there before moving to Nanaimo in 1957. She enjoyed many activities, such as golf, curling and bowling. She especially enjoyed her time boating with Rex and their friends.

Like her father, she had a real “green thumb” and could make just about anything grow. She will be greatly missed, but never forgotten. Lorraine is predeceased by her husband Rex, parents Joe and Signe Bergeron, her brother Wally and sister Eileen. She is survived and will be missed by her sons, Gary (Paddy), Donald and her daughter Gail (Bill), seven grandchildren, ten great grandchildren, her sisters Shirley and Evie as well as her friends. The family would like to thank the caregivers at Nanaimo Seniors Care Home for taking such good care of Lorraine.

No service at Lorraine’s request. In lieu of flowers a donation can be made to a charity of choice.
