On March 1, 2019 at 7:30 pm, Lorraine Smith, loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, passed away peacefully in Zion Park Manor at the age of 87. To know Lorraine was to love her, and she opened her arms and heart to every person Providence brought her way.
Trained as an RN at Vancouver General Hospital, Lorraine cared for everyone that crossed her path. From pulling teeth to taking out stitches, she was the person people in the neighbourhood came to for medical attention. This love of nurturing wasn’t confined to people as evidenced by our numerous pets – dogs, cats, turtles, bunnies, hamsters, gerbils, guinea pigs and budgies. She loved all things living.
She is remembered most for her boundless love, her genuine faith and her unwavering integrity. We were truly blessed to have her in our lives. Lorraine will be missed by her devoted husband of 64 years, John, cherished sister, Nonie, 6 grateful children, 23 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren.
May we joyfully carry on her legacy of love and faith!
