It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lorraine Susan, Barry, Sutherland, Meek. She was the beloved mother of Daniel Sutherland and David Meek (Dianne), and grandmother to Burney and Bailey. Lorraine was the adored daughter of Ron and Lorna Barry, and sister to Ronald (Marlene), Robert (Sheila), Edward (Terri) and Andrew (Susan). Lorraine is survived by many nieces, nephews and wonderful friends.
Lorraine was born in Penang Malaysia, on May 18, 1955, where her father was with the RAF in a theatre of war for several years before returning to England. She immigrated to Canada in 1956 with her parents and older brother Ronald. At the age of one and a half years, they settled in Victoria and finally moved to Sooke in 1969.
Lorraine succumbed to cancer on July 9, 2012. A special thanks to the VIHA nurses, Dr. Pocock, Beacon Community Services, and all friends and family who helped with Lorraine’s care.
A celebration of Lorraine’s life will be held in Sooke, at the Prestige Oceanfront Resort, on Friday July 27, 2012 at 1:00 PM.
