DENNIS: Lorraine (nee Weigelt) passed away peacefully at home to be with her angels on July 23, 2020 with her family at her side. Lorraine was born on February 28, 1937 to Reinhart and Emma Weigelt at Moosehorn, MB. She had 5 brothers and 2 sisters. In 1954 she met the love of her life Robert (Bob) Dennis at the Paterson Barn Dance in Winnipeg and were married in Moosehorn September 29, 1956 and remained married for 64 years. They had four children Barb (John), Brenda (Bruce), Ray (Lori), Roberta (Steve) and 7 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren. Lorraine was kept busy gardening, crocheting, curling, golfing and of course bingo. She was involved in Job's Daughters, Ladies of the District Shrine Club, and Assiniboine Kiwanis Club where she was active volunteering. Bob and Lorraine loved travelling with many memorable trips including Europe, Alaska, and Australia to name just a few. The family is left to cherish the fishing trips to Wekusko Falls and then Rocky Lake. They also hosted two complete family trips, the first to Cuba to celebrate their 50th Anniversary and Mexico to celebrate their 60th Anniversary. Lorraine was very devoted to her family and we were extremely fortunate to have Mom at home with us kids growing up. A funeral service will be held at Brockie Donovan at a later date due to Covid-19.
