Lorna Emma Binder (nee Soule)


1932 – 2017

It is with deep sorrow that the family of Lorna Binder announce her passing on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 in

Cranbrook at 85 years of age.

Lorna was born on August 20, 1932 in Haff ord, SK.

She was a very keen nature watcher, loving the changes in the seasons. Her “let’s go look and see” curiosity led to many travelled trails, especially while on visits to the farm and her prairie roots. These travels with imagination not only allowed her to share stories with family and friends but to also inspire her many talents for teaching and the arts.

Lorna is survived by her son Romi (Barb) Binder of Fernie, BC and her son Geri Binder of Cranbrook, BC, her brother Herman (Colleen) Soule of Ruddell, her sister Agnes (Steve) Woroch of Prince Albert and many friends and relatives in Western Canada. Lorna was predeceased by her husband Rom Binder in 1998.

Those wishing to make a memorial donation in honour of Lorna may do so to the: Heart & Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon, Okanagan/Kootenays Area Office, #4, 1551 – Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna, British Columbia, V1Y 9M9.

Arrangements entrusted to McPherson Funeral Service.
