Lorna Jean Valenius nee Noble passed away peacefully on December 27 2018 aged 99 years.

Lorna was the daughter of John Thomas and Ann Noble (Sunnyside, Eugowra) and dearly loved baby sister of Nan, Jack, Vera, Lindsay, Ian, Stewart and Bob.

Lorna settled permanently in Canada in 1955, marrying Aarre (Alan) Olavi Valenius.

Lorna loved her adopted country but her heart was expressed in the words of Peter Allen’s song I Still Call Australia Home.

Over the years Lorna enjoyed many trips back home, her last in 2014 when she and her family visited Sunnyside.

On this visit a reunion of all her siblings’ families was held.

Lorna leaves her family Ann and Sigfried, Mailis, Aisha, Axel and Kayden much richer for her love and nurturing.

Lorna was a much loved and respected Aunt Lorna to her Australian family.
