June 18, 1944 – December 29, 2022
It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beautiful mother, stepmother, mother-in-law, grandmother, and great grandmother Lorna Prokop on December 29.
Lorna will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by her children Debbie (Greg) McKee, Delores (Ed Bailey) Frechette, Beverley (Mal Spelbos) Black, Dale (Janell) Prokop. Grandchildren Katie (Trevor) Huszti, Jennifer (Shahed) McKee-Mohammed, Tegan McPhee, Justin (Meggi) Black, Leah Black, Matthew Black, Hailey (Jason Kirton) Prokop. Great Grandchildren Arriah and Theodore. Her Sister Dianne Connolly, Sister-in-laws Elsie Kinaschuk, Mary (Dave) Emery, Bernice Prokop, Evelyn Prokop, and Brother-in-law Bill Prokop. She will be fondly remembered by her aunt Gloria, cousins, nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
Lorna was predeceased by her parents Frank and Catherine Kohlman, her husband Morris Prokop, and her brother Del Kohlman. Brother-in-laws Ernie Connolly, John Prokop, Don Prokop and Joe Prokop, Sister-in-Laws, Josie Prokop, Jessie Kinaschuk, Anne Booy, and many other close relatives.
Lorna was a wonderful person with a kind heart who loved her family and friends to the fullest. Many of her favorite memories were family gatherings at her parents’ house, where rec room was always filled to the edges with people strumming guitars, singing, dancing, playing, and plenty of laughter. She loved to hear her dad sing. Family time was very important to her; inviting those closest to her into her home, whether it be for a holiday or a random Tuesday. Lorna enjoyed watching her grandchildren play soccer with their uncles in the backyard, setting up forts in the living room, or having tea parties. She was proud of them all.
Lorna enjoyed her working career at Reliable Distributers and Westburne. Quite often Lorna and Morris could be found at Jack Daniels dancing the night away. She enjoyed shopping with family and her coffee dates at The Golden Dragon and Caribou Restaurants.
We appreciated her for her witty sense of humor, teasing ways, warm hugs, and the way she made you feel loved. Lorna made a lasting impact on everyone she knew and left her friends feeling like they were family. She will be sadly missed by many.
Special thanks to Dr. Mavis Hollman, the staff at Bedford Manor, and the friends she quickly made there.
Rest in Peace and Live Forever in Our Hearts
A celebration of Lorna’s life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers the family would like you if you wish to donate to your favorite charity.Print This Obituary & Condolences
