Laurine was born on October 24, 1936 to Vernon and Florence (nee Detwiller) Strome in Watson, Saskatchewan. She was raised and attended school in Watson. Laurine met the love of her life, Ken Lummerding, on a blind date and on July 27, 1962 they were married. They spent their married years in Humboldt and raised five children: Janice, Kevin, Gail, Donna and Tammy, which resulted in an additional 12 grandchildren, 14 great-grand- children and four great-great-grandchildren. Laurine worked at the Royal Canadian Legion, the Humboldt Curling Club and the Humboldt Golf Course and also spent many years cleaning the CN Station. She thoroughly enjoyed her time at the Golf Course and made some special friends that she truly cherished. Laurine was a straight shooter, she always told you the way it was. She was easily excitable, as Ken was well aware of, and so were some of her clients who loved to push her buttons and get the much sought after response. We think she enjoyed it as much as they did! Laurine loved to spend time with family and friends and always hosted big dinners where the food was never ending. She was a very generous woman with a big heart and always an open door, she was the first one to step up to take care of others. Once her grandchildren were older and involved in sports and dance, she spent many hours watching and cheering them on and was an avid Bronco fan. She enjoyed bingo, gardening and watching and feeding the birds in her backyard. But her greatest joy was the time she spent with her family and friends.
