Lorna was born in North Battleford December 2, 1925.  Grew up in Prince, attended normal school in Saskatoon when finished she taught at log cabin #4963 back in 1944-45.  She met and married John Pearson in 1945.  Then in 1946 they moved to the Pearson Family homestead where they raised their children.  In 1976 they sold the farm and moved to Green Lake where they managed a government pig farm.  They later retired in Chitek Lake, Saskatchewan. Lorna was always an avid writer she would sit at the end of the day write in her journal.  She for years would write hand-written letters and send them snail mail.  As she had correspondence with people all over the world when internet became a thing, and she got her first computer she could start sending emails that was very exciting for her.    If you were travelling somewhere she probably knew someone there you should look up.  She kept a daily journal, wrote a weekly newspaper article for the Spiritwood newspaper while living in Chitek Lake.  When she sold Chitek Lake and moved to Meota she then wrote for the North Battleford newspaper providing them the Meota news.  She loved living in Meota made many great friends, was very active with the Do Drop Inn Seniors Hall.  Never missed an event or Friday cards unless she herself was away.  She loved learning new things, camping, traveling in the motor home, knitting, crocheting, card games, computer games, her I-pad with her always for emails, jig saw puzzles, words with friends and time with family above all things.
