June 27, 1956 - November 29, 2012
Lorna passed away Thursday, November 29th after a brief but courageous battle with cancer at the age of 56. She is survived by her husband Gregg Elstone of Emeryville, her brother Lloyd (Diane) Epp of Saskatoon, SK, her sister Cathy (James) Brown of Clive, AB, her nephew Wade (Danielle) Epp, her niece Meghan (Beau) Gallernault and her great nephew and niece, Preston and Gabby, all of Saskatoon, SK. Also her brother-in-law Mark (Debby) Elstone of Forest Glade, and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
She is predeceased by her parents Roy & Jean Epp, as well as her grandparents and other loved ones.
Lorna was born in Saskatchewan and she grew up in the town of Langham. She lived in both Saskatchewan and Alberta before moving to Ontario.
She met Gregg while on a trip to Cuba in 2006 and from that moment on their love for each other grew. She moved to Ontario later that year so they could begin their life together. Lorna loved to golf, and it was their mutual love of the game that brought her and Gregg together.
She spent many years in the banking industry until moving to Ontario, where she started another career by working at the Little River golf course in Windsor, she soon became the manager. She was very well respected and loved by both her employees and patrons of the course. Another passion she and Gregg shared was motorcycles, and last year she bought her own Harley, and she was very proud of her accomplishment in learning to ride, as was Gregg.
Her time here with us was too short, she will be lovingly remembered and missed by her family and friends.
In lieu of flowers, donations to "Transitions to Betterness" would be appreciated.
Their donations to the Met hospital are so valuable to both the patients and families of those in palliative care. A special and heartfelt thank you to those who cared for her during her brief stay in the hospital. Each and every one of the nurses became family and are guardian angels to those they care for.
A private celebration of Lorna's life will be held at a later date, and her cremains will be buried with her family at Langham, SK in the summer of 2013.
