Lorraine Harcus (Albrecht)

Passed on February 11, 2023

May 16, 1952 – February 11, 2023

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our mother and grandmother with family by her side. Left to cherish her memory is her son Brian (Cristen); her daughter Christine (Trevor) Buchanan; grandchildren Daylen, Alexis (Sam), Brooklyn and Riley (K.C.); her siblings Walter (Betty), Albert, Lil (Ted), Peter (Linda), and Carol; her brother-in-law Bob (Jean) as well as many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband Rick and her parents, Peter and Erna Albrecht.

Lorraine was born and raised in Boissevain, MB. At 17 she moved to Winnipeg to attend Success Commercial College and went on to work with MTS. On October 14, 1972, she married Rick and moved to the family farm where she spent the next 34 years raising her two children, tending to the garden and yard, helping on the farm as well as a variety of part-time jobs over the years. She loved the outdoors, whether it be camping, fishing, gardening, or pushing her grandkids on the swings. When Rick passed away in 2007, she decided to try a new adventure and moved to Stonewall. During this time, she spent many hours volunteering with the seniors at the 55 Plus Centre. Eventually she decided to downsize and moved to a condo in Winnipeg. Here she met and made many friends over coffee time and happy hours. She spoke fondly of her fellow condo neighbors. Even though she left the farm years before, her heart was still in the country. She would always ask how seeding and harvest was going and knew the exact dates that each were started and completed the year before.

Special thank you to Judy K. for all your support during her illness. As per her wishes, a private internment will take place. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Mood Disorder Association of Manitoba or the Grace Hospital.


Our sincere sympathies to the Harcus and Albrecht families, may wonderful memories be a comfort as you grieve

Bill and Deb Thiessen

So sorry for you loss.

Wendy and Elvin
