Lorna Mary Boschmann (nee Neufeld)
1954 ~ 2020
 
Lorna was born on August 11th, 1954 in Winnipeg, Manitoba to Bill and Elsie Neufeld, the fifth of eight children in the family. At an early age the family moved to Morden, Manitoba where she spent her early school years. At the age of 12 the family moved to Winkler, Manitoba where Lorna finished her high school. It was in high school that she met and dated her future husband Hank. After graduation Lorna moved to Winnipeg to earn her degree as a licensed practical nurse and worked at St. George’s Hospital with polio patients, and at Misericordia Hospital with prenatal babies. Her entire life she enjoyed working with children. In 1975 she moved to St. Catharines, Ontario where she worked in a senior care home. It was in Ontario that she reconnected with Hank who was living in Toronto. On June 11th of 1977 they were married in Mississauga, Ontario. On December 13th, 1981 they were blessed with their first child Gabe. In the fall of 1982, the new family moved to Tracy, New Brunswick to work with The Sisters of Mary, a Lutheran Nun organization. During this time, their second child Jeff was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick on April 25th, 1985. As their time of ministry came to an end, they decided to move back to Manitoba to be near family members. Their third child Zac was born on December 27th, 1988 in Winkler, Manitoba. It was shortly after this that Lorna started working at Winkler Elementary School as an Educational Assistant. These were some of the happiest years of her life. She loved working one on one with kids. Seeing them progress in any small measure brought her tremendous joy. Since her retirement Lorna has enjoyed her winters in Tucson, Arizona and always looked forward to seeing the kids and grandkids at Christmas time. Her greatest joy in the last few years has been her boys and their extended families, especially her grandkids.
 
Lorna was predeceased by her parents, two older sisters, Nancy and Connie, and a younger brother, Tim. She is survived by her husband, Hank, three sons, Gabe, Jeff with Lauren, and Zac, two grandchildren, Jude and Addison, two brothers, two sisters and numerous nephews, nieces, in-laws and friends.
 
In lieu of flowers, if friends so desire, donations may be made in Lorna’s memory to Garden Valley School Division – W.E.S. playground improvement project.
