Rita Lorraine Gooding
(Rita) Lorraine Gooding
December 28, 1951 - June 6, 2021
Lorraine is off on a new adventure having moved a lot, nothing to keep her still. With great sadness, Lorraine passed from a short battle with cancer. She leaves behind her husband of 46 years, Trevor; her daughter, Nicole (Aaron) Lunde; her son, Robert (Rebecca) Gooding and six beautiful grandchildren; Bruce, Hannah, Ryan and Kendra Lunde and Jessica and Emmett Gooding. She also leaves behind her Mother, Janet Bowhay; her sister, Lorna (Terry) Stasiuk; her brother, Bob (Sheryl) Bowhay; her Aunt Kathie Eichel and many brother-in-laws and sister-in-laws, aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews and nieces. She was predeceased by her father, Don; her brother, Bradley and parent-in-laws, Eric and Ethel Gooding.
Lorraines passions as she moved through life included sports, square-dancing, cross stitch, refinishing antiques, renovating houses and creating an amazing Christmas Village. But they all paled compared to her passion for her grandchildren. She absolutely loved being a Grandmother.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Pilgrims Hospice Society, Edmonton.
our thoughts and well wishes are with you through these hard times
I am deeply saddened at this loss of a truly heart felt lady. Lorraine’s drive and determination, I will never forget, Always inspiring, always tackling life head on, these are memories that will never be forgot. May life’s blessing bring you peace as you watch over those grandkids from above. Trevor and family, I wish you my best and I know together you will console each other. Continue to be strong. Regards, Sina.
Hi Gooding family:

We send our love and prayers.

Trevor, Nicole & Robert and Family,
We send our deepest sympathy to all of you. We are in shock, as we have just read the announcement in the newspaper. Although we have lost touch in the last number of years we have often thought about you.
Lorraine was such as wonderful, generous friend and we are grateful to have known her and for the many, many wonderful and fun memories we had together as families. Lorraine’s strong “just do it” attitude was so inspiring and extraordinary. Her special Christmas villages/decorations will always be a special memory for us.
Sending our love and comforting hugs, Del, Darlene, Jennifer & Darren Henry
