"What we have done for ourselves alone
dies with us; what we have done for others and the world remains and is immortal."
Lorraine is survived by her three children, Christine, Toriann and Robert Ashton; younger siblings, Wayne, Gene and Judith; and cousins, nephews and nieces. She was predeceased by her parents, Maxim and Esther Rousseau; and siblings, Arthur, Louise, Raymond and Lucille.
Lorraine was born in Winnipeg but also lived in Montreal, Victoria, Toronto and Cobourg, Ontario. She was an active member of her church community and enjoyed cooking, gardening and numerous handicrafts; there was never a time when she wasn't knitting, sewing, or making dolls and stuffed toys. She was always ready to lend a hand or offer advice to both friends and family, and her wisdom and practical nature will be greatly missed.
Interment of ashes will be at St. Cecelia Church in Inwood, Manitoba at a later date.
