Obituary of Lorne Lightbody

Lorne Lightbody of Gravelbourg, Saskatchewan passed away peacefully on March 9, 2024, at the age of 92 years. Lorne was born to Jim and Clara Lightbody on a farm in the Coppen district of the RM of Gravelbourg. He grew up on their family farm near Bateman, Saskatchewan with his three brothers and one sister. Later he would stay to work the land and enjoy the farm life. Lorne married Beatrice Bell on November 17, 1967. They lived on the family farm when their two sons were born, Roger and Terry. In 1977 the family moved into Gravelbourg and enjoyed watching the boys’ activities. They spent their time gardening, playing cards, and enjoying company for many years. Lorne was always a kind and humble soul and even after losing Beatrice in December 2011, he continued to live independently for the rest of his life, driving to the farm whenever he desired to sit and enjoy the serenity of the land. Up until just a few years ago Lorne continued to enjoy bowling and even last summer still planting a garden. His keen eye and sharp mind allowed him to continue driving and allowing his freedom all these years, which was a testament to his persistent nature.

Lorne is survived by his sons Roger, and Terry (Simone); grandchildren Meagan, and Austen and great-grandson Kane.
