Lenore was raised in Edmonton, married John in 1979 and made her home in Coaldale, Alberta.. John and Lenore raised their children, Dustin (deceased) and Brittany on a 1,000 acre ranch on the Old Man River. John was involved in grain and cattle farming.
Lenore recently retired from the medical industry after thirty-two years covering Western Canada. During her tenure Lenore served on the Alberta Exhibitors Board of the Operating Room Nurses Association as well on a National level for the Canadian Operating Room Nurses Association.
Volunteering has always been a big part of Lenore’s life whether involved as the Treasurer for Lethbridge Musical Theatre for 40 years, Jennie Emery Elementary School Advisory, parent to accompany the Kate Andrews High School band to Cuba for band competition, 4-H parent or presently as Secretary of the Readymade Community Centre.
Lenore is very compassionate and understanding when dealing with one’s loved one. Lenore suffered the loss of her father in law, Harry and her mother in law Anne as well as her son, Dustin, within a very short period of time. Those losses have encouraged Lenore to give back to those in need by working with families during their time of sorrow and grief.
