Lorne & Dorothy Sovdi

   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

   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

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.”
