(nee BONNER)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother and grandmother. Left behind to celebrate her life are her sons, Calvin, Terry (Karen) and Larry (Terry); grandchildren, Melissa (Nolan), Derek, Katie, Amy and Kevin. She also leaves her sister Frances Phillips; sister-in-law Pat Bonner and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
She was predeceased by infant son Leslie; parents, William and Ida Bonner; brother Jim Bonner and brother-in-law Ross Phillips.
On August 26, 1925, Lorene was born in Roland, Manitoba. She received her education at Myrtle and in 1944 moved to Roland with her parents. She joined the staff of the Royal Bank where she worked as a bank teller. In 1952, she married the love of her life, Edward (Ted) Kitching. They moved into Winnipeg initially to St. Vital and then settling in Woodhaven in 1955. In August 2014, they sold their house and moved into Sturgeon Creek 1 Retirement Residence.
Lorene enjoyed skating, curling and attended many of her son's hockey games. She took a keen interest in gardening and sewing. She also canvassed for many organizations over the years. She was an active worker in the Sturgeon Creek United Church and sang in their choir for 52 years.
Funeral services will be held on Saturday, October 23 at 11:00 a.m. in Prairie Spirit United Church, 207 Thompson Drive, Winnipeg. Rev. Susan McIlceen will be presiding.

All guests are asked to enter the church through the Thompson Drive entrance. Attendance will be limited to a maximum of 90 guests.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to the staff of Sturgeon Creek 1 Retirement Residence for their support. In particular, Kathleen Kinal for her outstanding care and friendship. In addition, the family would like to thank the staff of Oakview Place for their compassion and care.
