Lorna Mary McClelland (Nee Pegoski)

Lorna Mary McClelland fondly known as Boosha, passed away at Country Meadows Care Home at the age of 81 on May 17th, 2021.

The one and only Boosha was born in Neepawa on March 8th, 1940 to Polish immigrants Mary and Joseph. She spent most of her years in the town she loved. A beautiful bride, Lorna married Dave McClelland November 6th, 1961 and together they raised two daughters before they went their separate ways. Mom will be lovingly remembered by daughters Patty (Todd) Goranson and Judy (Tim) Gompf.

 Lorna enjoyed needle point, crocheting and gardening. She took great pride in her award winning yard. Mom enjoyed fishing and always seemed to catch more fish than anyone else. She was an active member of St. Dominic’s Roman Catholic Church throughout most her life.  All who loved her will remember her kind smile and infectious laugh. 

Lorna leaves to cherish her memory brother, Joey (Judi) nieces, Janice, Joanne, Sandra, Lorrie, Kelly, nephews, Leonard, Randy, Terry, David and Stephen.  More than anything mom loved being a Boosha to her grandchildren. Boosha will be cherished in the hearts of Brittany, Kylie, Cady, Tyson, and Dylan.

Lorna is predeceased by parents Mary and Joseph, nephew Danny, brothers Julian, Daniel, Roman, and Anthony, sisters Ida and Victoria. The Polish sisters are reunited!

Due to COVID19 restrictions a small family funeral will be held on Thursday, May 20 2021. A celebration of Boosha’s life for family and friends will be held at a later date when restrictions are lifted.

Boosha we love you and you are in our hearts forever.
