Lois Gail Gramchuk (née Allen) January 13, 1946 - December 26, 2004 Funeral arrangements by Regina Funeral Home GRAMCHUK – Lois Gail ( nee Allen). On December 26, 2004, Lois Gail Gramchuk age 58, passed away peacefully surrounded by her loving family after a long journey through Alzheimers. She was predeceased by her parents Blois and Gertrude Allen. Left to cherish her memory is her husband Mel; daughter Tracey Gramchuk of Regina; daughter Charlene (Harry) Dahliwal of Coquitlam, BC; brother George (Linda) Allen of Edmonton, AB; and granddaughters: Kayla, Jasmine, and Sabrina; nieces, nephews, and not to forget her beloved dog Brandee and cat Tigger. In 1967 Lois graduated from the Regina General Hospital School of Nursing and worked at the General for 10 years. Lois then moved to the Red Cross where she was to remain for 16 years only to be retired on medical disability. Lois had a special gift in dealing with the public, being a dedicated and compassionate nurse to her hospital patients and Red Cross blood donors. It was said by many that Lois gave a real smooth needle. Lois also shared a role in helping to establish the Plasma Unit. Also, when the weather was overcast or if one had a bad day, you could always count on Lois’s million dollar smile and infectious laughter to calm troubled waters. Lois loved her family very much, especially her granddaughters. Lois’s family wish to acknowledge her many dear friends, especially Darlene Eason and Coleta Hess for their loving care and visits. Also, a thank you to Dr. Imy Ooi (Family Doctor) and to Dr. Stewart McMillan, R.N’s Bill Horbach, Marilyn Black, Jenny Bryson and to all the nurses and support staff at the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre, Main 5, and Unit 2 – 5 for their compassionate care and comfort of Lois.
