My thoughts and prayers go out to your family. Lorna was an absolutely amazing teacher who related so well to her students. I will never forget her tremendous sense of humour and her patience with our antics. She truly made learning a fun and interactive experience.

Deepest sympathies to the Goetz family…. Lorna was such a beloved teacher!! I was lucky to have her for French 10 – 12 waay back in the 80’s and her class was always something to look forward to. She had an awesome sense of humour and unending patience… imagine trying to teach kids to conjugate verbs in French…. she will be missed by many and remembered with a smile.
