Condolences & Memories (10 entries)

  • Lorne served as President to the Sunrise Lodge Board of Directors for over 20 years. In memory and appreciation of his valuable contributions, a donation has been made to the Human Society, Cancer Care and the Siloam Mission. No longer in our lives to share, but in our thoughts you are always there. - Posted by: Sunrise Lodge Inc. (Board Member) on: Oct 08, 2015

  • Lorne was my first cousin who I never mom was Aunt Evelyn's youngest sister, and we lived out west near Vancouver. I believe I only met Aunt Evelyn once or twice when she came out for a visit. I never met Uncle George or cousin Louise. I was always curious about your family, and I have never got to Winnipeg either. Being at the youngest end of the family and living out west, there are a number of cousins I have never met. Lorne sounds like he was a great person and I enjoy reading everyone's comments. I am sorry I never got to meet you Lorne. In 1978 I started doing my family history and I am still working on it, as of course it never ends. When I was a young girl I remember asking my mom, of her 8 siblings, who went with who, and what cousins I had. Please feel free to write to me. Sorry for your loss.

  • We first met Lorne Ashdown in 1997 when Guy was very ill. He was there at our farm to offer a helping hand, and he generously did so for almost the next 18 years. Lorne was a kind man who worked hard to get the job done! He was highly respected in the Anola community. We were fortunate to attend the burial farewell and hear the kind words spoken by his loving children, Howard & Louise. His true honest friends were there to bid him a final farewell. We are grateful to have known him. He will be missed. Guy & Julie Douville - Posted by: Julie & Guy Douville (Friends) on: May 11, 2015

  • We are so thankful to have had the chance to see Lorne before he found the peace he so deserved. We knew Lorne for over 27 years, he was such a wonderful Man. We would go out almost every week, when we lived in Manitoba, to play cards and have dinner with my Mom and Lorne. We will miss him and the smile that was always on his face. My Dear Mom (Ann Geddes), I’m so sorry for your loss of such a good friend, he appreciated you being there for him every single day as he prepared for his journey to a better place……….. Those whom leave us are never far away, we can find them in our hearts and memories. - Posted by: Tracey Geddes and Bruce McDonald () on: Apr 30, 2015

Love Howard, Debbie and kids. oxox. - Posted by: Howard & Debra Ashdown (Son, daughter in law and family) on: Apr 29, 2015

  • Rest in peace Lorne. You were always a good friend to Mom and Dad over the years you were neighbours. It was so nice of you to drive Dad around for his appointments and such when he was sick. Always said hello whenever we met somewhere and was interested in what and how family was doing. - Posted by: Jeff and Gail Habing (Friends) on: Apr 29, 2015

  • "It is a far, far better thing that I do, than anything I have ever done; it is a far, far, better rest that I go to, than I have ever known." Charles Dickens My love and condolences to my cousins, Butch and Louise and to your families. My Love and peaceful blessings to you all. Debbie - Posted by: Debbie Haun (Neice) on: Apr 29, 2015

  • I sat on the seat of Uncle Lorne's tractor as he drove it through his fields in Canada, when Mom and I visited him when I was a young girl. It was my first experience on a tractor. I loved it. I've embraced that memory deep in my heart and it could be why I loved driving a skip loader in construction so much. It reminded me of my special time with my Uncle Lorne. He was a Farmer and I'm a farm girl at heart. So we shared the love of being in nature and working with the dirt. He planted seeds and sowed the fields. I dug trenches for subcontractors to lay their utility lines for new home construction. He always came to my mind when him and I rode together on his tractor moving dirt and we loved being outdoors among blue skies and cool breezes. Thanks Uncle Lorne. You'll forever be in my heart. I love you. Debbie - Posted by: Debbie Haun (Neice) on: Apr 29, 2015

  • Uncle Lorne had the best voice, so deep and amazing! Sending you our love and hugs during this difficult time. With love, Julie, Alex, Nick, Dean and Caroline - Posted by: Julia Tipolt (Niece) on: Apr 29, 2015

  • Now the suffering is over. We hope you are at peace on a farm up in heaven. You will be missed. RIP Lorne, gone but not forgotten. - Posted by: Lisa and Darin smith () on: Apr 29, 2015
