It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our dear mother, Lorraine Mary Jurgilas (née Burke) on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 at the age of 89, following a lengthy and challenging course of Alzheimer’s. Beloved wife of Antanas (predeceased). Loving mother of Kurt (predeceased), Sandra Thompson (Michael), Anthony (Wendy) and Kimberly. Cherished grandmother of Courtney and Whitney Thompson. Born in Sudbury, she was the daughter of the late Steve and Louise (Clements) Burke. Dear sister of George, Bob, Irene, Frank (all predeceased) and Billy. Special aunt to countless others. Lorraine was renowned for her sharp wit and rapid-fire sense of humour, but it was her prowess in the kitchen that will long be remembered. Since childhood, Lorraine’s life was replete with health episodes that brought her perilously close to the brink on several occasions, however, her tenacity prevailed as she often exclaimed, “I’m not ready to go, yet!” We can’t be certain if she was finally ready, but we do hope she has found peace. The family extends sincerest thanks to the compassionate and professional staff at Pioneer Manor. Lorraine was interred at Civic Memorial Cemetery on Friday, March 9, 2018 beside our father.
