LORNA CARTER (NEE SHARP)

Lorna Carter (nee Sharp)

was born in October of 1934 and passed away after a long battle with kidney failure on March 9, 2015.

Lorna was an adventurous spirit and in her early 20’s she went to teach in Yellowknife where she became interested in photography and flying. She took her private pilot’s licence in St. Catharine’s, Ontario and was the first female in that city to do so. In 1960, Lorna married Gil Carter.

After about 20 years in Port Kells, B.C. Lorna and Gil moved to Armstrong, B.C. where they enjoyed many years raising and showing sheep.

Lorna loved teaching, golf, photography, cooking and many other pursuits. In later years genealogy became her passion and she spent many hours researching her roots.

Lorna is survived by her youngest sister Marlene (Botrokoff) and her nieces Lori Pajtascz, Kathy Tierney, and Spring Coltraine.

She will be missed by her many friends, book club associates and bridge club partners for her sense of humor and mischievous giggle.

A Funeral Service will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, April 11, 2015 at Personal Alternatives, 2980 Smith Drive, Armstrong, BC
