Lettey Lorraine Watkinson

1926 – 2015

It is with great sadness we announce that Lorraine passed away peacefully at her home on June 25, 2015. She is predeceased by her husband, Roy and is survived by her daughter, Linda (Dave), her grandchildren Tami (Todd), Jason, Chris (Tammy), Lisa and her great grandchildren, Marketta, Brayden, Kayden, Coen, Lilly, and Finn.

She was born in Courtenay, on May 30, 1926 and has very strong family roots here in the Comox Valley. She attended Sandwick School and after graduating, she went into hairdressing. Later she worked at Eaton’s and Touch of Class. She also volunteered at the St Joseph’s Hospital Thrift Shop. She worked there right up until the day she died.

She has always been an active and very independent woman who enjoyed her family and friends immensely. She was a very loyal Mother, Grandmother and friend. Lorraine will be sadly missed by all who knew her.

In lieu of flowers, feel free to make a donation in her honour to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. A memorial tea will be held on July 19, 2015 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at her home, 1444 Wilkinson Road, Comox.
