HALES: December 21, 2018 we lost a good friend when Lorna June (Richardson) Hales, age 75, passed away at the Assiniboine Centre. A memorial service was held at Central United after a private family interment. Lorna was predeceased by her parents Lorne and June, siblings Wayne and Sherry and husband Gus and is survived by son Chris (Nell) and granddaughters Beth and Corah and daughter Corey (Jay) Chodachek and grandsons Bronson and Brock of Florida, as well as sister Jude (Bill) Wesley of Minnedosa. Born in Hamiota and raised on the family farm at McConnell, Lorna came to learn that everyone must contribute equally to farm tasks; that family came first; that hard work, commitment and loyalty were necessary; that one must support and contribute to the community in which she lives. These values Lorna passed onto her own children. Her education began in McConnell and was completed in Hamiota. One highlight of her senior years was to win the Provincial Basketball Championship in the days before “Single to Quad A” had been instituted. She went on to Brandon College for Teacher Training (TTC) and began her career in Justice, then Transcona, then a few months on a European tour before returning to teach in McConnell. From there Lorna moved to Forrest Elementary, River Heights, Meadows and retired from Valleyview. She loved her profession simply because she loved working with young people and the many colleagues with whom she worked who were as dedicated and caring as she. Lorna married Gus Hales in 1966 and they lived at 18 Cottonwood Crescent for over 50 years. She became a stay-at-home mom until Chris and Corey started school. While the kids were still young, they purchased a cottage at Brandosa where Lorna was a friend to everyone, young and old and across all groups. She loved the beach activities, the bonfires, the “Wine Times” and other social activities. After retirement she spent May to September at the cottage and was a member of the Golf Club for 50 years, scoring the elusive “Hole in One”. Also for a half century, she was a member of a Bridge Club that met every Tuesday evening. She made many life-long friends over a friendly game of cards. She also volunteered for the Heart and Stroke Assoc., the Cancer Society and Christmas Cheer. Above all, family came first. She was a dedicated basketball/hockey/ ringette Mom and provided encouragement for Chris and Corey to pursue post secondary educations. She hosted many Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas get-togethers and endeavored to maintain Richardson traditions at each celebration. Once Chris and Corey moved out of province, she spent these occasions with their families as well as hosting the grandchildren at Brandosa for many, many summers, all to the end of contributing to their lives in a meaningful way, the quintessential Grandma. It was Lorna’s firm belief that “It is what it is” that carried her through her battle with cancer with courage and determination, a legacy sure to be carried on in her kids and grandkids.
Rest in peace, my friend,rest in peace.
