Lorene (Lorraine) Grace Knoll died peacefully to be with her Heavenly Father on April 6, 2012 at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home in Kamloops, BC. Lorene Grunert, known by her friends as “Lorraine” was born July 13, 1925 on her family’s farm outside Yorkton, SK. After growing up on the family farm, attending the local country school, she then graduated from the Yorkton Collegiate Institute. After completing teacher training certification at the Normal School in Regina, she returned to teach school at the local one room Grunert School, very close to her family’s farm. She married her long time childhood friend, Winston Knoll July 21, 1950 at West Ebenezer Baptist Church, north of Yorkton, SK. After marrying, they moved to Regina living there until 1995. Throughout her long life, music was her great love. She was church organist and accompanist for innumerable church soloists and choirs. Many friends and family were blessed with chocolate cake, coffee and a warm chat in her home for many years. After Winston’s retirement, they enjoyed many old and new friendships in Kelowna, BC until 2012. She moved with Winston to Kamloops to be closer to family at the close of her life. Lorraine is survived by her loving husband, Winston, and her two sons, Dale (married to Dorothy) and Garry (married to Susan). A family internment occurred on April 11 at 11AM at Hillside Cemetery, Kamloops, BC. A memorial service will be held to celebrate the life of Lorraine at 2PM, May 5, 2012, at 933 Glenacre Road, McLure, BC. All her friends are invited. Should friends desire, donations may be made to their favorite charity in memory of Lorraine.
