June 1, 1927 - October 26, 2011
The family of Lorna June Roberta Jones announces with sadness the passing on of our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother at the Thunder Bay Regional Health Sciences Centre after a courageous struggle with illness. Lorna had fond memories of her childhood in the CPR railway towns of Upsala, Raith and Portage La Prairie in the days before Highway 17 was built. She moved to Port Arthur as a teenager, attended Business College and worked at the Department of Veterans Affairs until her marriage to Harry Jones in 1949. They raised three children in Fort William. She was a founding member and secretary of the Memorial Society. On retirement she and Harry enjoyed travel to England, Florida, the Cayman Islands, Bermuda and to visit their grandchildren. Lorna was predeceased by her husband in 2006, a son who died in infancy, her parents Donald and Ella (Wainio) Tremells and brothers Neil and Don. She is survived by her children Barbara Yurkoski (Ron), Tom (Brenda) and Jeffrey, grandchildren Christopher, Nicole, Ryan and Kevin, five great-grandchildren and brother Ken Tremells. Special thanks to Chris, Christina, Kurt and the rest of the team in the Oncology Unit of TBRHSC for their supportive care during this period. If friends desire, memorial donations to TBRHSC would be appreciated.
