It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lorraine Tyson on January 31, 2019 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre, Blairmore, AB. She was 79 years of age.
Lorraine, husband Stephen & children Carol & Murray moved to the Crowsnest Pass in 1967 and left the area in 1971. Lorraine and Stephen returned to the Pass in 1995. Lorraine remained in the area for several years after her husband’s death in 1999; she then relocated to B.C in 2003. She returned to the Crowsnest Pass in 2009 to be closer to her long time friends and her son Murray. Lorraine resided at York Creek Lodge (YCL) and always spoke fondly of the staff. Lorraine enjoyed participating in the daily Lodge activities, especially playing bingo, going on an outing, or simply visiting with friends, Lorraine treasured and appreciated every moment. The family wishes to express a special thank you to Carman, YCL Recreation Director, for her kindness to our mother.
Left to mourn her passing and celebrate her life are, sister Karen, son, Murray Tyson of Coleman, daughter, Carol (Dave Clare) Tyson of Comox, BC, grandson Tevis Tovo of Vancouver, BC, cherished friend Beryl Or, as well as her extended family and many friends.
