It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our mother Lorraine Ridler. Lorraine was a long-time resident who had lived in Endadoon, Kwinitsa, and Terrace. She was a master knitter, a respected Kitselas elder, and the matriarch of our family.
Lorraine was predeceased by her parents, Frederick and Edna McKenzie, her beloved brother Fred, her husband Harry Ridler, her eldest son Fred Ridler, and her grandchildren Sarah and Ryan Ridler.
She is survived by her children Dwayne Ridler, Ron (Arlene) Ridler, and Roxanne Ridler. Her grandson Travis (Christy) Ridler and their children Carlee,
Tyson, and Levi. And her dedicated blue-heeler Linden Ridler.
She was a devoted wife, loving mother, caring sister, adored Aunty, amazing Grandmother, and the best friend to have. She touched everyone with her special magic.
Funeral Service was held January 27, 2017 at Knox United Church. The family will carry out her internment wishes this summer.
