Marie Rose Alma Lorraine Berglund (nee Bilodeau)

November 18, 1939 – July 1, 2017

In loving remembrance of Lorraine, her laughter, generosity and family spirit will be held by her children, Elaine (Elgar), Allen (Mary), Mandy (Jane), Michelle and Monique; her mother in-law, Madeline Berglund; grandchildren, Cody, Nigel, Simon (Brittney), Haley (Derrick),  Magdelaine (Gavin), Christopher (Michelle), Sophia, Ruegan and Loren; great grandchildren, Isabella, Gavin, Alexis, Felix, Maeve, Edixon, Hudson; and her loving siblings, extended family members and dear friends.  

Lorraine was predeceased by her husband, Melvin; her son, Kelly; and her grandson, Matthew.    

Lorraine was the first of Armand and Gertrude (nee Chalifoux) Bilodeau’s seven children. The family lived in Beaumont until Lorraine was seven. When the French-speaking family moved to Edmonton she did not speak a word of English. She quickly learned. As a young woman she was always up for an adventure and a laugh, loving trips to the lake and family gatherings and taking care of children.    

She met Mel when she was 12. They married in 1958, after she turned 18. Together with their six children, and anyone else who showed up, they had a rich and varied life, raising a family while in Edmonton, farming in Morinville, facilitating a group home in Westlock, and trucking around North America. Her resourcefulness and ability to handle any task that presented itself was something that she perhaps didn’t recognize as remarkable in herself. Using her talents of cooking, crocheting, sewing, bookkeeping, babysitting, knowledge of astrology and truck driving, she stepped side by side with Mel through thick and thin until his passing in 2013.  

She was devoted to her family and she always had open arms and a special gift for making every person feel warm, welcomed and special, like one of the family. You couldn’t go anywhere without her sharing her ready smile and striking up a conversation with the person next to her. She was a wealth of information about the family and kept loving track of every family member, which is no small feat in a family the size of hers. The many blankets she crocheted are embracing family and friends around the world. Her ‘favorite thing’ were her each of her precious grand and great grandchildren She would talk about them and go through photos of them for hours.

She was always exploring and curious, loved to read and could talk about spirituality and astrology for hours. She loved her romance novels and movies - she could read an entire paperback in an afternoon. She had a mischievous sense of humourand would be cracked up for hours, sometimes even years, when something struck her as funny. She was always up for a good time, a good visit and a good laugh. She loved her pet names, cute little sayings and clever replies. When told that she was loved, she would often reply, “I love you more”

We see Lorraine at peace, embraced by all the family she loved so very much. She was one of the most loving souls to ever grace our planet.

“We love you more, honey, we love you more.”

Do Not Stand at My Grave and Weep
By Mary Elizabeth Frye

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Louella was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on January 25, 1960, at the Saskatoon City Hospital. She lived in Saskatoon for several years before her family moved to an acreage in Clavet, SK. Upon her parent’s separation Louella moved with her father to Stony Plain, AB. Years later she came back to Saskatoon where she met her 1st husband Hubert Georget and had her one and only child Renee, Hubert and Louella divorced in 1991. Louella met Bob Rayner, they married in 1994, together they moved to Red Deer, AB, and started a new life together. Louella and Bob later divorced and she moved to Edmonton in 2002, where she met Stephen Hines in 2005. Louella and Stephen moved to Stony Plain in 2006 and married in 2015. Louella easily made new friends wherever she went and kept old friends all the way back to childhood. She had a bubbly easy going nature, a heart of gold, a genuine smile, and a contagious laugh. Louella loved to play games on her iPad, and catching up on Facebook. She liked to be outside in the sun, visiting with friends, traveling to hot destinations, enjoyed camping, and spoiling her little baby (Shih Tzu) Bailey rotten!! Louella will be sorely missed by her extended family and her very many friends in many places. Cremation has taken place as per Louella’s wishes.
