Our deepest condolences

From: Bonnie Strang
Relation: Neighbours in the Darling Community since I was born in the early 1960's.

Dear Toronchuk family,
Our sincere condolences to all of you on the loss of your Mom, Baba. We will remember your Mom from her pleasant and friendly personality. Always happy whenever we’d see Lois in the community or Darling church event. She was always so helpful and meticulous. It’s evident that her kind and courteous mannerism was passed along to her children and grandchildren. I remember Jerry and his boys coming to visit when my Dad passed away. Their kindness was very comforting.
May all your special memories help ease your grief in the days ahead.
Our love & Hugs from “old” neighbours, Bonnie (Pelensky) & Ray Strang and family, Courtney, Dwayne & Pamela.

From: Chris and Allan
Relation: none

Connie and Terry,
Though some time has passed since we saw one another we wanted to send our condolences on the passing of your beloved mom, Lois. With sympathy, Chris and Allan Unruh
