BECK, Lorene (née LOOSEMORE)
By Donald SANDERSON, Page A16
Wife, mother, grandma, teacher, homemaker, gardener, musician, bicyclist. Born July 29, 1932, in Lambton County, Ontario Died July 24, in London, Ontario, aged 73.
Lorene's life was not an easy one and she never missed an opportunity to tell us so. "Remarkable" is an appropriate word to describe the life of Lorene BECK, as it signifies that her time amongst us made a difference. Born in the Great Depression, Lorene LOOSEMORE knew what it was like to do without. In spite of many hardships, both physical and economic, Lorene's parents ensured that both she and her brother Jim were well-educated. The Loosemores understood the value of a strong education and Lorene never missed an opportunity to instill that value in us all.
Graduating from the London Normal School, Lorene took up the art of teaching and shortly thereafter met her husband, Robert. Lorene and Robert raised two remarkable daughters, Bonnie and Karen, who loved their mother unconditionally, perhaps as only daughters can.
Lorene's happiness was cut short by the early and untimely death of her husband, Robert. Nonetheless, there was work to be done and, with some help from her Friends and family, Lorene set out to finish the job of raising her family, now as a single mom.
Lorene was a hard worker, indeed. "Loose yourself in toil, lest you wither in despair!" she would say, and we would chuckle. In fact, we still do. However, I think that Lorene was right, and perhaps this is how she coped with a life that was imperfect and often difficult.
In spite of many hardships, Lorene's life was remarkable and positive in a number of ways: raising two daughters to be thoughtful, caring and responsible women, good wives and exceptional mothers caring for her father and her mother until the end of their lives making sure that her children were well-educated. Lorene developed and nurtured a number of lifelong Friendships, providing homemaking services and caring for a host of people in the Cherryhill community of London.
Lorene loved all things homemade and gently used. She loved music, especially when it was made in her living room or produced by her grandchildren. And she found peace in God's garden, the great outdoors, while riding her bike.
And though solitary in many respects, Lorene loved the company of good Friends; Friends who accepted her just the way she was. She was a surrogate mother to a number of young farm girls from Kent County who boarded with her while attending the University of Western Ontario. These relationships remained strong to the end of her life.
Lorene was a shrewd businesswoman. In her own words, she could "squeeze a penny and make it beg for mercy!" Some people would say that she was tight with her money. If there is one regret that many of us share, it is that, for whatever reason, Lorene chose to deprive herself of many of the simple pleasures that she so generously provided for many of us. Over time, we came to realize that, like it or not, this was the way it was going to be, and we learned to accept it. And so her life, while far from easy, was indeed remarkable, and she did, in fact achieve everything that she ever set out to accomplish, and more.
Lorene's graveside service was just as she would have wanted it. Her family and close Friends gathered around a casket, hand-crafted of freshly sanded pine by her son-in-law and lovingly upholstered by her three grandchildren. The minister read from the 23rd Psalm, two grandchildren played Bach on their violins, and a cardinal, her favourite bird, performed a fly-by. I played Amazing Grace on the bagpipes and we gave thanks for all that was good in the full and remarkable life of a woman named Lorene BECK.
Donald is Lorene BECK's son-in-law.
