Proverbs 31 says, in part: "She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed...Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who reveres the LORD is to be praised. Give her the reward she has earned, and let her works bring her praise..." Our mother, though she had a career of over 20 years with the Carleton Board of Education, serving as an Office Administrator at Sir John A. MacDonald and Bayshore Public Schools and finally in the Board Office, was first and foremost concerned with her family home and children. She was our biggest cheer leader and champion. Her medals, Certificates of Achievement, awards - those things she saved and cherished most - were the mother's day cards she got from her kids; their report cards and their graduation service bulletins; a pair of little shoes, a Brownie scarf, a baby's lock of hair; little art projects made for her; the lives of her grand and great grandchildren; countless holiday meals when we'd all gather from the busyness of our lives. Indeed, all those things that she treasured in her heart, were related to the love she had for her children. And she was a woman who held to her faith through many years with toil, trouble and snares. Faith which allows us to now ask: "Death, where is thy sting?" For we know that in her faith she believed in the promise of God given us in his son, Jesus. "In my Father's house there are many rooms, and I go to prepare a place for you; and if I prepare a place for you, I will come and take you to where I AM." Rejoice! I say again, Rejoice." For Lorraine Sollows is in the nearer presence of our Lord. Love always Mum!

I'm going to miss her as Mrs. Sollows was such a delightful and positive person. I always felt welcomed by her & her enthusiasm for life and God and her family put a smile on everyone's face she met.
