It was wonderful to have Lorna in our valley in Alice Springs. She was warm, welcoming and always dedicated to her work with young people, for whom she brought support and understanding into their lives.

At this time, we open the space for guests here today to share a memory. This can be a story or memory that makes you smile or is special to you.If we were all together today this would be like raising your hand and passing the microphone around the room. There are two ways to raise your hand. To use the Zoom feature, click on participants and the raise hand icon will appear on the bottom left of the participants panel. Or, if your video is on, we invite you to do this the old fashioned way and wave your hand in the video. Our staff will call on you by name and ask you to unmute your microphone.You can also share here, in the chat. The chat will be shared with the family as a virtual guestbook.

Christine Lowther

Dan, yes, but it was actually something she was embarrassed about. Even while we were all proud of her and Dorothy for being that cop’s pain in the a**.

Great to hear from other members of Lorna’s Canada World Youth family, Gina and Julie. I’m so glad some of us had the chance to get together in the last few years, here on Saltspring and over in White Rock. She was still the free spirit that we all knew from four decades ago. She’s so loved and so missed… Brian

'free spirit' + 'freedom'
Liz Hunter
02:34:29
Was it only me who was terrified of how much "zest" she brought to driving? I remember her taking me to the island when I was 16 - she was taking me along to help cook for a group of Canada World Youth visitors- given her sense of arriving in a timely manner I get it now - we drove 85 miles per hour (they were Miles not KMs on her old beater car) and she terrified the CRAP out of me - one of the best memories of my teen years that trip with Lorna - she was so fun and lovely!

This is my last little note to LornaHi Lorna -A little note from Robert, Leonard, and Käri-Ann (and I know many others who are mutual friends such as Mark Hobson and Rob Rainer and Paula and Larry and Penny and Ian would join us in our words here). We want to thank you for your friendship for all of these years.Your luminous and beautiful spirit has certainly enriched our lives. There has been so many fulfilling conversations as we talked of people and life … with your open heart and mind invigorating our explorations and sharings together … and as always, your caring and acknowledging personality warming the space.You truly are a gorgeously bright-eyed and buoyant being. We will hold you in our hearts and lives forever and remember you as we live and appreciate so many things that you also love and delight in. Thank you again for all you gave to us and to the world. We look forward to seeing you again one day, our friend.

Oh my what a marvelous memorial of a truly extraordinary woman. I know Lorna from The Canada World Youth days but more so because I moved to Kelowna and she and I connected more up here. Adventures line dancing, at local protests and finally in October we had a lovely visit at the "famous" Joe Rich cabin. I felt so honoured to be invited. I am so happy to meet Lorna's family today. I knew Jean years ago through the NDP and was delighted to find out she was Jean's daughter. Lorna was a gift to all of us!
