Lorna attended Highland View School until Grade 3 and then transferred to Hughenden so she and Bertha could help Grandma Parke.

After high school, she worked as a hired girl for a few years.

Because there was a shortage of teachers, she was asked to supervise correspondence courses.

After one day of instructions, her teaching career began and lasted 10 months. She had seven pupils from Grade 1 to Grade 7.

Lorna met Delbert during the winter and they were married in November 1947.

They settled down farming at Silver Heights where they had a mixed farming operation and raised their three boys.

They lived on the former Redmayne place until 2006 then moved into Windsor Manor in Coronation.

Delbert passed away in June 2009 at the age of 91.

Lorna had resided in the Assisted Living for the past four years until her passing.
