Ms. Lois Lavern KANE March 31, 1932 - November 22, 2008 - LOIS LAVERN KANE (McKenzie) March 31, 1932- November 22, 2008 Lois was the eldest daughter of Don and Doris McKenzie. She grew up in Watrous, Sask. and met the love of her life, James E. Kane at Manitou Beach. They were very young; Dad always joked that he had to wipe her nose before he kissed her! They were married June 7, 1949 in the United Church and four years later they married again in the Catholic Church, which put Dad back in “good standing!” Mom made many lifelong friends working at Robert Simpsons, Sask. Power, Drope and Associates, and many more through Dad’s career with the Regina City Police Service. Mom and Dad had only one daughter, me, but were blessed with the arrival of a grandson and two granddaughters and eventually 7 great grandsons and just recently a great- granddaughter. Mom’s health declined rapidly in the past year. Even through the rough days she always had a sense of humor and was always appreciative of everything anyone did to help her out! Mom’s main interest was her family, but she enjoyed travel with Dad, family and friends from one coast of Canada to the other and to exotic locales as well. She was an extremely talented interior decorator, hip on fashion and electronics, got great pleasure from making a Grand Slam, and never objected to stopping at a gambling machine. Happy hour was a must while the Young and the Restless was on! She was a good cook, well read and proficient at grammar and punctuation having been a stenographic instructor with Sask. Power. She was the life of the party, the bell of the ball, but most of all “Loey was a lady!” She was predeceased by her brother Bobbie; her parents Don and Doris McKenzie; her loving husband Jim; and brother-in-law Ralph Crawford. She is loved and remembered by her only daughter, Linda and son-in-law Peter Halbgewachs; grandson Jamie (Carrie); two granddaughters Jana (Dave) Bulmer and Jillian (Jason) Smith; seven great grandsons Brandon, Jayden and Taylor Halbgewachs, Riley, Brady and Conor Bulmer, Sawyer Smith; one great granddaughter Samantha Smith; two sisters, Donna Crawford, and Carol (Andy) Lawrence; one brother Don (Harma) McKenzie; as well as many nieces and nephews. Lifelong friends, Lorraine Butler, Ruby Krienke and Peggy Elliot always had a place in her heart, as well as many other friendships she treasured even tho’ time and distance has come between them. There is an empty place in our hearts, but Dad has her in his loving arms again!
