Obituary

Lorraine Devona Gwendylin Lucille Price passed away on October 22, 2020 at the age of 86. Lorraine was predeceased by her parents, Andrew and Margaret Schwitzer, and her brother, Bryn Schwitzer.
Lorraine was born November 1st, 1933, on a farm near Bangor arriving before the doctor was able to. She was placed in a wood fired oven to keep her warm.

In the fall of 1939 Lorraine and her family moved to a farm near Stockholm and in 1945 moved again to the homestead on which she was raised. Lorraine made the 3 mile trek to Excel School by horse and buggy. Later she would attend a Catholic school in Stockholm.

As the eldest of six children, Lorraine helped in raising her younger siblings – Janice, Marlene, Dennis, Maxine, and Bryn. Her years on the farm were typical of a working farm family – milking cows and helping with household chores. After graduating in grade 11, she attended business school in Winnipeg making lifelong friends. Following business school she moved to Yorkton and worked for the TD Bank.

In 1957 Lorraine was married to Leighton Price. They had three children; Kelly Price (May 9, 1958), Darryl Price (November 4, 1961) and Karen Ryan (November 11, 1962). Leighton’s career with CP Rail led to several relocations. Moving from Yorkton to Prince Albert in 1960, to Saskatoon in 1967, to Regina in 1970 and then to a beautiful acreage in the Brandon Hills in 1983; where they retired in 1987.

They left Brandon in 1990 and bought a waterfront cottage at Pasqua Lake, where they spent 11 years before moving into Fort Qu’Appelle. In 2008 they moved to Yorkton, where they spent the remainder of their loving years together. They continued enjoying the company of their children, 6 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren.

Leighton and Lorraine shared the perfect love story. Lorraine will be remembered as the love of Leighton’s life, and the heart at the center of her family. Lorraine’s sense of fun and cheeky sense of humor will remain in the memory of all who loved her. Although our hearts ache with the loss of an amazing woman, our hearts are also full with memories, the legacy she left, and the bond her family continues to have.

Memorial Donations in memory of Lorraine may be made to the Holy Trinity Anglican Church or the Alzheimer’s Society of Saskatchewan as gifts of remembrance.
