Peters (Sampson), Mary “Lorraine” – Age 79, of Lower L’Ardoise. It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Mary “Lorraine” (Sampson) Peters on February 11, 2019, in the Palliative Care Unit, VG Site, QEII, Halifax. She was a daughter of the late Annie Mae and Joseph Sampson.
Lorraine was predeceased by her husband of 49 years, Gerard Francis Peters; and her brother, Joseph. She is survived by her children, grandchildren, great-grandchild, sisters, brothers, many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
Lorraine enjoyed life’s simple pleasures; chatting with family and friends, berry picking, flowers, antiques, attending yard sales and knitting. For the past 10 years she had been knitting and donating comfort teddy bears to the IWK for children undergoing surgery, complicated medical tests, or who just need a bit of extra cheering up. She will be missed by her family and friends.
Cremation has taken place. Funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, June 14, 2019 in Holy Guardian Angels Catholic Church, L’Ardoise. Memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, or a charity of choice.
Arrangements are under the direction of Arimathea Funeral Cooperative, Upper Musquodoboit.
