Loretta “Sparky” Gregorich

Passed away peacefully on May 25, 2012 at Jubilee Manor after a lengthy battle with cancer.

She is survived by her husband Edward and her reasons for fighting for so long, her children, Jacob and Emma. She is also survived by her mother Bernice Posnikoff, sister Nancy, brothers Ray (Yvonne) and Mike (Mary Anne), best friend Susan Roth and many more family and friends.

Loretta’s love for her family was obvious, as was her love of art which came through in her drawing, gardening and decorating. She also loved the outdoors, singing, playing soccer and spending time with her many friends.

Although this part of her journey has ended, she did not go through it alone. Our love goes out to all of those people who spent time with Loretta, sent well wishes and gave hugs or encouragement along the way.  

Special thanks to Dr. Malpass and the girls on the cancer ward, Dr. Barbour, Nelson Home Support and the staff at Jubilee Manor for making Loretta’s final days very comfortable.

“Thank you Loretta” — A celebration of life will take place on Saturday, June 23rd at 2761 Blewett Road, Nelson from 1– 4 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Loretta’s memory at the Nelson SPCA.
