By Lethbridge Herald Obituaries on August 21, 2020.


Lorraine Sueko Howlett, beloved wife of Gerald and cherished mother of Jessica, passed away peacefully at home on August 16, 2020, wrapped in the loving arms of her family. She will be deeply and forever missed by her husband, her daughter, and her son-in-law, Blayne.

Lori was born on September 21, 1962, in Bassano, Alberta, to Yosh and Kay Maruno and was the final addition to our family. We moved to Vauxhall in 1965 and in 1970, our parents purchased Wendy’s Dairy Bar. For Lori, her most vivid childhood memories were of her days spent working there.

Following graduation in 1980, Lori moved to Calgary with her childhood sweetheart, Gerald. Upon completing her accounting diploma, she began a successful thirty-eight year career in the oil and gas industry.

Gerald and Lori were happily married for thirty-six years, building a loving home and family. Her role as Mom to her only child, her ‘Darlin’ Jessica, brought her great joy and fulfillment. Lori loved life and could light up any conversation that she was a part of. She had a quick wit, a great sense of humour, an easy laugh and a twinkle in her eye, that we all loved. She adored her family and loved baking sweets for their special occasions and large holiday celebrations.

Lori loved reading, gardening and travelling, especially if that meant a pool, a book and poolside service. An ideal night for her would be spent at home, with her family, cheering on the Flames. She also loved her career and the many friends she made along the way.

Lori also leaves behind her older siblings, Lois (Ron) Maloney, Susan (Brian) Van Uden, Larry Maruno, Annie (Robert) Janzen, Linda (David) McMillan and Janet (Larry) Lavallee and many loving nieces and nephews and their families.

We would like to thank the nurses and doctors at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre and the staff at Palliative Home Care for their support.

A private family service will be held. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Christensen Salmon Generations Funeral Home.

George Nemeth

1945 – 2020

George Steve Nemeth, Husband, Daddy, Bub (Grandpa), Father in Law, amazing hugger, gentle giant, MacGyver, and superhero, peacefully took his final country road home to heaven on August 16, 2020, at the age of 74. He wanted everyone to know he is now on a permanent vacation with his son Ryan Nemeth.

George loved nature and the outdoors. Any chance to be outdoors, whether it be hiking, camping, kayaking, motorbiking, or working on his yard, is where you would find him. Growing up on a farm outside of Coaldale had a part to play in making George a MacGyver who made things like go-carts, ice cream carts, waterfalls, igloos, and treehouses seemingly magically out of nothing. George was also an avid photographer of nature and had thousands of photos to share with anyone who would come to visit.

George met his one true love, Arendina (Dianne) Nemeth, and they married on June 28, 1969. He was an amazing father and superhero to Leanne (Brad) Jones and Ryan Nemeth. He was also a Bub (grandfather) to Scarlett, Ethan and Emily. He especially loved being a grandfather and sharing his love of nature and rocks with them. George treasured his family and was always there to support and love them. George gave the best hugs or super-strong handshakes that made his loved ones know that everything was going to be okay.

George was blessed to be born as a twin (Jim) into a large loving Hungarian family. He was born in Raymond, Alberta, on November 3, 1945, to mother Mary (Kujan) and Paul Nemeth. He grew up surrounded by brothers and sisters that he loved dearly.

He is survived by sisters Ida (Jim deceased) Munro, Mary (Alvin) Kennedy, Elizabeth (John) Nemeth, Margaret (Hans) Brunner, and brothers Jim (Deb deceased) Nemeth, Bernard (Linda) Nemeth, Joe (Bonnie) Nemeth, Mike (Valerie) Nemeth.

The family would like to thank all the amazing angels in disguise that work on 5A at Lethbridge Regional Hospital. The care he received there was outstanding and gratefully appreciated.

A private family Graveside will be held in the Mountain View Cemetery.

Flowers are gratefully declined, in lieu of flowers please hug someone, let them know they are loved.

Cremation entrusted to Martin Brothers Funeral Chapels.
