Sept. 1, 1926 - July 16, 2012 Dorene Lostracco passed away July 16 at the "Arbutus Care Centre", just short of her 86th birthday. Originally from Welland, Ontario, she spent her final 3 wonderful years with her devoted daughter Linda Lostracco in Vancouver. She is also survived by her beloved son Mark Lostracco, sister Marilyn (Bill) Rohaly, brother Les Carter, very many adoring nieces and nephews and her life-long friend Clara Wilson. She was a cherised "second Mom" to Dave Draper, Tom Campbell and Bob O'Neal. All who knew Dorene were taken with her genuine love of life, positive nature and quick wit. Very sincere, heartfelt appreciation extended to all of the staff at Arbutus Care Centre; an amazing group of truly caring people.

She will return home on Wed. July 25 where interment will take place at Riverside Cemetary in Wellandport and she will rest with her dear sister Margaret Gyles. Services arranged by Davidson Funeral Home, Port Colborne, Ontario.
