Willard Lorne Howell


Howell, Willard Lorne
On December 20, 2014, Lorne Howell, a much loved husband, father, and grandfather passed away at the age of 78 years. Lorne was born in Mortlach, Saskatchewan to George and Nellie Howell. He spent 18 years in military service as a cook on board ships and at several Air Force Bases. He then worked as a cook for Capital Health Services. Lorne enjoyed carpentry and woodworking, building many large projects while he was physically capable and later smaller pieces that he would take to craft markets. His friendly nature allowed him to easily carry on conversations with those he knew as well as with strangers he was interested in getting to know. Lorne is survived by his devoted and loving wife Virginia (Ginger), his son Tim from Colorado, daughter Nicole Sevigny (Regis) and three grandchildren, Erinne, Adrien, and Ian. Lorne is also survived by his son Gordon (Cathy) from his first marriage, his sister Marcia McCue from Ontario, and numerous nieces and nephews. Lorne was predeceased by his father George, his mother Nellie, and his sister Donna.
A memorial service will take place on Saturday, January 10, 2015 at 11:00 am in the Kingsway Legion 175 Branch, 14339-50th Street, Edmonton, AB., with Reverend Andre Vander Boor officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Mazankowski Heart Institute, The Canadian Diabetic Association, or The Kipnes Centre.
