It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lorraine Dénommée on October 17, 2012. She is survived by her loving husband, Charles Graziadei; her mother, Carmen Lemay; father, Lucien Dénommée (predeceased); 8 brothers and sisters: Suzanne Dénommée, Carole and Colin Chiswell, Johanne and Fernand Cléroux, Marc and Sue Dénommee, Jacques (predeceased) and Marie Dénommée, Pierre and Kimberly Dénommée, Andre and Linda Dénommée, Paul Dénommée and Marie-Andrée Fortin; her daughter Karla and son-in-law Eugene Swaney and grandson Peyton; son and daughter in law, Todd and Tia Grazaidei and their children Sonnet Dawn Carmen and Dante; stepdaughter Sabrina Levinal and sister-in-law Madelaine Quinn Graziadei and children Michael and Marie.

Her passion, her great compassion, her humor, her zest for life and her outstanding contributions to her community will be greatly missed by many, many friends, colleagues and lives she has touched.

There will be a “Celebration of Life” Memorial Service Sunday, October 21 at the Head of the Lake Hall at 11:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers, please honor Lorraine with a donation to a scholarship fund for Aboriginal students that has been established in her name. If you wish to contribute to this fund, call 250-558-3345.

The family would especially like to thank the First Nations Friendship Centre and staff for all their support to Lorraine throughout the years and during this difficult time.
