LIVINGSTONE Lois Lois Livingstone, golfer, bingo player, mother, grandmother and friend-extraordinaire, died Thursday, June 1, 2006, at the age of 74. While Lois was born in Lloydminster, Saskatchewan, Kamloops was where she raised, along with her husband David, her three daughters, Barbara, Catherine, and Deborah. The 5'1" (we think she was lying about the inch) dynamo was larger in spirit than her physical size indicated. Despite wearing "very high" heels and "very high" hair in her younger days, her daughters towered over her, as did her two grandsons - from a very early age. But all were guided by her energy, her giving spirit and her stubborn determination - the last, at least, passed on to all three of her daughters. Lois was the perfect golfer, putting the ball straight down the fairway every time. And she lived her life off the course, the same way - straight, honest, direct but with compassion. Lois will be missed, but more importantly, remembered with love every day by her children, Barb (Brian Burton), Cath (David Horne), and Deb, and her two grandsons, Kyle and Evan Burton, who were the apple of her eye and returned her love with a passion. She also had a "fourth daughter", Cindy Matter, whose kindness and giving nature was a special gift to Lois and her family. Cindy's husband Randy and sons, John and Rudy were also a huge, important part of her life. Lois is also survived by sister Marlene (Gordon) Dopking, aunt Kitty Matter, sister-in-law Julie Matter and the huge, supportive Livingstone clan. She was also fortunate to have a close friendship with cousin Glen Wirth and the other members of the Wirth family. Lois was also blessed by special friend Linda Nicholl and all the members of her bingo crew. She was predeceased by her parents, Ted and Vera Matter, husband David Livingstone and granddaughter Jessica Finlayson. No flowers please.
