On September 21, 2017 at 9:10 AM Lorraine succumbed to the complications of Frontal Temporal Degeneration/Dementia. She will be missed by many friends and family but especially by her husband of 43 years, Keith; her son Scott and daughter-in-law Elizabeth and her precious grandchildren Malcolm and Merrin; brothers Neil and Betty Cowie, Bob and Joanne Cowie and in-laws Linda and Sheldon Otto, Mary and Doug Woodward, Lea and Mike Johnston and all of her dear nieces and nephews. I wish I could list everyone but it would be such a long list that this obituary would be nothing but names.
Flora Lorraine was born in Calgary, Alberta on October 9, 1954 to Jack and Flo Cowie. She grew up in the community of Parkdale where she and her brothers enjoyed all the thrills and excitement that growing up on the north hill with the Bow River just blocks away could offer. Lorraine was a high achieving student throughout her school years culminating in her graduation from Queen E High in 1972. She was active in school clubs and groups throughout those years, most of which would have been labelled as the nerds or goody-two-shoes groups. Such is the trail to success for good people!
