It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Lorna Jane Smith, age 86, of Springhill, NS.  Lorna passed away at the Cumberland Regional Health Care Centre on Wednesday, May 11, 2022.

Born in Hastings, NS, she was a daughter of the late Norman and Etta (Atkinson) Noonan.

Lorna was a gentle loving soul, putting everyone else’s needs ahead of her own. She worked her whole life as a registered nurse between the Amherst and Springhill Hospitals. She loved animals, having owned several dogs and cats. She was a frequent donor to a variety of charities.  She was a member of the Springhill Seniors and loved playing cards.

She will be dearly missed by her second husband of nearly 10 years, Lawrence "Larry" Tower of Springhill; sisters; Wanda Livingstone, Amherst, Sharon Smith (Jim Gallagher), Mapleton, NS; Sharon's daughter Susan Smith (Jay Burke), Springhill, who was also like a daughter to Lorna; step daughter Terry (Ken) Davey, Southampton, NS; step son Bill Tower, Courtenay, BC; as well as several nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her first husband, Gerald H. Smith; an infant son and infant daughter Jean Marie.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the A H Brown Funeral Home, 5 McFarlane St., Springhill, NS, (902-597-2361).  In keeping with Lorna's wishes, cremation has taken place.  A Celebration of Life for Lorna will take place from the Funeral Home on Saturday, May 21, 2022 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.  Lorna will be buried beside her first husband in Hillside Cemetery, Springhill.
