ROBINSON, Lorraine Hazel 1940- 2007 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our wife, mother and grandmother, Lorraine Hazel Robinson on Wednesday, June 13, 2007 at the age of 66 years. Lorraine passed away peacefully at her home due to heart disease she had courageously struggled with for many years. She fought hard to stay here with us, but sadly her "broken heart" could not sustain her any longer. Lorraine was born on November 24, 1940 at Round Hill, Alberta. The family later moved to the Bowden area. She was the youngest daughter of Louie and Carrie Henry. Lorraine attended River Glen School, which is where she met and was courted by Warden Robinson. Dating a farm boy opened a whole new world to her and it was not long before the "small town girl" was doing chores on the farm. They courted for many years until married on June 12, 1959. They celebrated their 48th wedding anniversary the day before her passing and in her true form had told Ward "to go fishin". She worked for a brief time at the former Deerhome Institute until she became pregnant with her first child. For the remainder of her life she proudly carried the job titles of "farmers" wife, mother and homemaker, which she excelled at. Lorraine would get up in the early morning to cook meals and bring them out to the thrashing crews that were in the fields, twice a day. She made sure that you never went hungry and that there was plenty of baking and snacks to be served with coffee. Lorraine's life was focused on her family, making sure they were never without anything, especially love. She was happiest surrounded by her six granddaughters and in her last year her only grandson. Lorraine had many wonderful and dear friends, whom would accompany her and Warden to many functions and dances. She loved to dance and go kick up her heels. Lorraine had many joys in life, camping, fishing, shopping, Sunday drives, reading, playing games, coloring with her younger grandchildren, sharing a coffee and visiting with family and friends. She always worked hard in her gardens and yard. She especially had a "green thumb" when it came to her beautiful flower pots displayed on her deck and steps. Lorraine had a heart of gold and was very generous with her love to all. We are going to miss her more than words can describe. She will be lovingly remembered by her husband Warden, a daughter, Joni (Rick) Webb, two sons, Rick (Shawna), Garry (Melina) Robinson, all of Red Deer, her grandchildren, Angela, Janelle (Kyle) and Jenna (Kurt) Webb, Jessica Robinson, Katelyn, Ashley and William Robinson, two sisters, Gladys (Nick) Kuzyk of Leduc, Clara Rogoski of Innisfail, as well as many nieces, nephews and close friends. Lorraine was predeceased by her son, Daniel Kenneth, her parents, Louie and Carrie Henry, a sister, Margie Steiner, an infant brother, Arnold Henry, in-laws, Ward and Margaret Robinson and brother-in-law, Kenneth Robinson.
