Lorna Margret Porter 1946-2006
My Aunty Lorna Margret Porter passed away on the 7th of January 2006 at the Alfred Hospital In Melbourne she was 59 years old.
She suffered a aneurysm, then had a massive stroke and slipped into a coma which did irreversible damage to her brain and finally her life support system was turned off and she peacefully passed over to the other side.
She was much loved and will be missed by her 5 sisters and 2 brothers her husband Brian children Craig, Robert, Ricky there wives Carina, Belinda, Leah and her Grandchildren.
Aunty Lorna was won of the great people she spent years involved in local community work in her town of Mirboo North she raised money for the local scouts for over 20 years, she volunteered at the local aged persons hospital, she supervised on the local bus for the interlectually disabled people and many more. In 1993 she received an OAM ( order of the Australia Medal ) for her community work.
Above all she was a great family member and was involved in organizing many family functions that we had. She had a great fighting spirit and was often up for an argument about numerous topics and it was always fun to watch the banter between her and other family members about topics that ranged from football to politics.
All our lives are far better for having known Lorna.
