Remembering Lorna – Bench blessing and dedication ceremony to honour a longtime employee and confidante in Killarney
Lorna was born during the season of Advent, which might explain why purple was her favourite colour.Lorna Delamorandiere worked at St. Joseph’s for fifteen years as a lunch supervisor.The school council worked tirelessly over the years to find a way to honour her time spent with the staff and students.
This year, a sturdy town bench was installed in the playground to ensure her spirit and presence is felt among the students. Father Peter Moher, of Holy Redeemer parish blessed the bench this past week. The school teacher, Irene Dembek also shared her memories of Lorna, her friend and confidante. Lorna’s sister, Lois was also present for the special moment.
