Lorraine Hawryliw


July 30, 1931 – August 22, 2018

Lorraine Hawryliw passed away peacefully on August 22, 2018 at the age of 87.
Marie Lorraine Pearl Dull was born July 30, 1931 to Alice and John Dull in Herschel, SK. In the fall of 1933, Lorraine moved to Meadow Lake, SK by covered wagon with her parents and brother, Denver.
She married Peter Hawryliw on June 12, 1952 and they made a living farming, mainly in the Clover Bar District of Meadow Lake, SK. Lorraine enjoyed gardening, cooking, playing the accordion and singing. Lorraine had many friends and enjoyed getting together to play cards, go camping and fishing or pick mushrooms and berries. Lorraine joined a bowling league for many years and also worked at the bowling alley. Lorraine sold Avon and took pride in her sales and was recognized in the Avon Presidents Club annually. Lorraine was an avid chuckwagon fan and when she was not able to go and watch the races, she would listen to every race on the radio and then in her 80s learned how to watch them on her iPad. Lorraine enjoyed playing games and Bingo was one of her favourites, which she was still able to play every week at the Northland Pioneers Lodge. Family was important to Lorraine and she tried to keep in touch with everyone.
