With much sadness in our hearts, we, the family of Lorne Rodney Sovdi and Dorothy Ei- leen Sovdi announce their acci- dental passing on Sunday, May 3, 2015, at the ages of 74 and 70.
Although mom and dad were taken too soon, it is of great comfort to us that after 51 years of marriage, they can remain to- gether to begin their new lives.
Their memory will be forever cherished by their children, Col- leen (Monte) Matus, Verdynne (Dale) Gilchrist and Grant Sov- di; grandchildren, Amelia Matus and Evan Sovdi, as well as Evan’s mother, Trina Yasinski; honourary grandson Brayden Wrubleski, as well as Brayden’s mother, Denise Hein; Lorne’s siblings, Marguerite Bryson, Janet Jorgenson, Gloria (Calven) Johnson, Karen (Keith) Memory and Allan (Anna) Sovdi; Doro- thy’s siblings, Cecil (Karen) Memory, Russell (Sherrille) Memory, Hazel Memory and Wes (Connie) Memory, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
They were predeceased by Lorne’s parents, Earl and Mabel Sovdi; Dorothy’s parents, Alvin and Christine Memory; sister Karen (Memory) Bergstrom; infant sister Eileen Sovdi; brothers- in-law, Doug Bryson and Boyd Bergstrom; nephew Bruce Bry- son and infant nephew Kevin Memory.
A service to celebrate the lives of Lorne and Dorothy was held on Saturday, May 9, 2015 at 1:00 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church, Estevan, with Pastor Stewart Miller officiating. A private family interment took place at the Torquay Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Canadian Dia- betes Association, the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Saskatche- wan, the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency or a charity of choice would be appreciated by the family.
“When it’s yer time, it’s yer time.”
Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Hall Funeral Servic- es, Estevan.
The family of Lorne and Dorothy Sovdi would like to thank Pas- tor Stewart and the Trinity Lutheran Church, Hall Funeral Servic- es, our extended family, neighbours, and friends for their love, support and prayers. Thank you for the food, flowers and dona- tions and also thanks to Days Inn for their kindness.
