FLETT, Lorna Amelia
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our mother, friend, and confidant. After a long and fulfilling life, she has now completed her journey.
Lorna had an adventurous spirit, a kindness of heart and wisdom found in few people. Mum's life began in Wales and changed when she became a nurse in World War II, accumulating more experiences as she travelled throughout the world and raised a family in Canada. While she was a confident and capable woman, her greatest strength was her ability to help people realize and draw out their own full potential. Never lecturing and always with an ease that made you want to do the right thing, she was gracious and strong. Be they adults, children or animals, she was always able to bring a sense of togetherness to all.
A loving woman that will be missed by many but always in the hearts of her daughters, Jillian and family (David, Nicholas, Matthew and Kelsey), Alison and family (Dave, Spencer and Mackenzie) and son, James and family (Judith, Coel and Rhys). A private remembrance is being held for the family. Lorna's spirit will be honored by planting a hawthorn tree and placing a bench in the Edmonton park that meant so much to her. The family wishes to thank the staff of McConnell Place for the love and care they gave to Lorna and the compassion extended by the staff of Lynnwood Parker 2. Gifts may be made to the Edmonton SPCA in honour of Lorna.
