LORAINE SYLVIA BOILEAU (published on January 23, 2010)

LORAINE SYLVIA BOILEAU (nee BILLOWS) Sunrise July 23, 1943 - Sunset January 15, 2010 On an unusually mild January day, Lori left us and the pain of a body that stopped working a year ago. Lori leaves to mourn her passing, her husband and best friend of 36 years, Vince. Lori began her long career with Air Canada after graduating from Daniel MacIntyre. This enabled her to travel to Europe, Hawaii, the Caribbean and her favourite islands - Trinidad and Tobago, where she met people who became her friends for life. Lori grew up and settled in Winnipeg with her husband Vince. She had no idea what laid ahead for her when she inherited four children, but had no problem winging it and eagerly learned how to lend an ear, hold a hand, and be patient. Lori was a dog lover and travelled the country showing her prized Siberian Huskies. She had a special love for anything with fur and paws and found joy in the love they gave back. She loved to crochet and spending time with her grandchildren. After a year in the city, Lori and Vince moved to the RM of Springfield and after retiring moved to Beausejour, where they totally enjoyed the serene life beside the Brokenhead River. Lori always had peanuts available for their resident chipmunks. Lori and Vince spent their winters in Florida for many years and Lori enjoyed their trips to the flea markets and malls to find the bargains. She is survived by her brother Gordon (Paula) and family, her son Ronald and wife Colleen who have been so helpful and supportive during her long illness, her granddaughters Cassandra and Kayla, and grandson Chris who were the sunshine of her life. Danny, Josee and grandchildren Marilee and Stephan, Robert and Tammy and grandchildren Alex and Kaylee. Loraine was predeceased by her sister Patricia, her father Fred and her loving mother Nettie. Lori will be cremated and her ashes brought home. Gone but not forgotten, Lori has touched many lives including many exchange students who became her second family. She will always be remembered for her simple approach to life. Many thanks to Seven Oaks Hospital and Beausejour Hospital for the love and care over the last year. In lieu of flowers, the family request that you have a Mass dedicated in her memory or a donation to your favourite charity. We will miss you so much Grandma.
