CROMWELL, C. Lorraine “Lorrie”

1936 - 2023

It is with heavy hearts we share that Christena Lorraine “Lorrie” Cromwell (née Hiller) died at Brantford General Hospital on Monday, October 16, 2023 in her 88th year after recently receiving devastating news of cancer. 

Adored wife and soulmate to husband Chuck for 67 years. Loving mother to daughters: Wendy-Leigh Pelletier (Ken) and Wanda Vella (Bob) and fur-baby, Marlee. Predeceased by her daughter Marianne (1962) and son Darryle (2019). 

Cherished grandmother to Sara Cromwell (Paul), Steven Vella, Nicholas Pelletier (Amanda), Richard Cromwell (Maria), Corrine Pelletier (Matt), Elyse Passmore (AJ), and Bobby Vella. 

Loving great-grandmother to Lexis and Kailey Vella, Hudson Cromwell, Patrick, Jayne and Collin Passmore. 

Dear sister to Fred Hiller (Sue) and sister-in-law to Jodi Chambers. 

Predeceased by her parents, Robert and Mary Hiller (née Kaye); siblings: Jim and Jack Hiller, Marion Kaye; and in-laws: Jack Radcliffe, Irvin and Roy Cromwell, Donna Perry and Jean Lee.

Lorrie retired from Proctor and Gamble after over 25 years and was a valued and respected volunteer of the BGH Fracture Clinic for 17 years where friends were like family. Lorrie and Chuck spent many years as snowbirds in Floral City and Tarpon Springs Florida where Lorrie volunteered as well before health issues forced them to stay and put up with Canadian winters. 

A funeral service to celebrate Lorrie’s life will be held at the England Funeral Home, 294 Main Street South, Mount Forest, on Thursday, October 19th at 12:00 noon with visitation from 11:00 – 11:45 a.m. Interment to follow at Mount Forest Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Autism Canada.

Mom, I'm so glad we let go of the past and moved forward to build a good Mother/Daughter relationship. You have strengthened me and helped me be the person I am today. I am relieved your suffering has ended but was still not prepared to say goodbye. I love you.
