It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Lorna on Sunday, January 6, 2019 in her 80th year. She was the beloved wife of Robert Younge and much loved mother of Rick (Cheryl), Wendy (Tom Abercrombie) of Carleton Place, ON, Wanda (Mike Malone) of Duncan BC, and Roger (Fiona). She will be missed by her grandchildren Rebecca (Chris), Benjamin (Katie) and Patrick (Heather) Younge; CJ (Megan), Jake and Tanner Porteous; Lindsay and Robert Abercrombie; Katie and Grace Younge. She will also be remembered by great-grandchildren Lochlan and Callum Stevens.
Raised in the township of Thorne, she was swept off her feet by R.L. and they settled in Clarendon, Quebec. Lorna was the secretary-treasurer of the Clarendon Council for 32 years. She had a great interest in family history and played a major role in organizing the Bretzlaff Family Reunions. She had a passion for gardening and cooking and earned many ribbons from the Shawville Fair to attest to her skill at both.
