Lorelei Gaye Beaucage

Suddenly and surrounded by love and her family at her side, Lorelei passed away Tuesday, May 21, 2002 at the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg, Man. from a massive brain aneurysm.
Lorelei was born Sept. 14, 1955 in Kenora, Ont., the eldest child of Larry and Gail (Roblin) Beaucage.
She is survived by four brothers and one sister, Larry (Rick) and Kathryn of Winnipeg, Man., Eugene (Butch) and Debra of Winnipeg, Man., Jamie and Marion of Saskatoon, Sask., Michelle and husband, Bruce Morton, of Winnipeg, Man., and Darcey and Jennifer of Calgary, Alta.
Also surviving are nieces and nephews, Lawrence (Harriet) Beaucage and their two children, Anlina and Jasmine; Dennifer, Lee Raymond, and Josephine Beaucage; Michael (Sherri) Beaucage and their two children, Austin and Justin; Matthew Beaucage; Jennifer Beaucage (Dave) and their daughter, MacKenzie; James (Rhonda) Beaucage and their son, Bryden; Christopher and Ryan Hill, and Jason Beaucage; Kate-Lynne Morton; and Raymond Beaucage.
Also surviving are aunts and uncles, Dan Roblin and George Roblin, Linda Yoemans of Kenora, Mary and Don Olford of Kenora, Joyce and Otto Williams of Lac Du Bonnet, Man., Florence and Lloyd Adams, Ed and Marie Titley, and Geraldine and Wayne Boucha, all of Kenora, Carol and Larry Fraser, Gwen Andrews of Ignace, Ont., and Susan and Nick Shiska of Kenora; as well as numerous cousins.
She was predeceased by her grandparents, Florence (Roblin) Speaker in 1993 and John Speaker in 1994 of Fort Frances, Ont., Helen and Albert (Pete) Beaucage in 2000 of Vancouver, B.C., and Ada (1994) and Jim Roblin (May 23, 2002); aunt and uncle, Shirley and Charles Boucha of Kenora; as well as cousins.
We would like to thank Aunt Geraldine for taking Lorelei to the Kenora hospital, the Kenora hospital staff, the St. Boniface staff in Winnipeg, as well as the unbelievable team of surgeons and staff at the SICU (7th floor) of the Health Sciences Centre in Winnipeg who worked so hard so we could keep her, but it was not to be.
Lorelei attended school and worked in Kenora and Fort Frances, and will be missed by many, including Dino’s staff and friends in Kenora and Fort Frances.
A memorial service will be held Friday, May 31, 2002 at 10 a.m. at the Notre Dame Romance Catholic Church (222 1st St. N. in Kenora), followed by a luncheon.
Lorelei was cremated, and her ashes will be placed in Grandma Speaker’s grave in Fort Frances at a later date in August.
We also want to thank everyone who has helped the family in any way. Prayers have been greatly appreciated.
Donations can be made to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB).
Very sad are the hearts that loved you. Silently the tears fall. Living our lives without you will be the hardest thing of all.
You did so much for so many. Your heart was kind and true, and when we needed someone, we could always count on you.
You never asked for anything, you didn’t want to be a “bother,” you worked so hard and got so little.
Loving you was so easy,
Letting you go is so hard.
I have precious memories forever
I’ll never hear that precious word MOTHER!!
the way you said it again.
Loving you forever,
Your Family.
