Lorraine 'Sam" Rahel

June 3, 1942 ~ April 24, 2022 (age 79)


Lorraine (Sam) Rahel born June 3rd, 1942, in Montreal Quebec passed away April 24th, 2022, in Salmon Arm, BC in the presence of her family.

 Sam will be greatly missed by her sons, Robert (Michelle) and Sean, grandchildren, Dani (Mason) Konopacki, Jason (Emily) Rahel & Taylor (Dylan) Zupansky.

Sam was born in Montreal East, the eldest of 6 children, she married her husband Jim in 1960 and lived there with him before moving to Freeport, Bahamas for 10 years, followed by Pincher Creek, AB, Prince George, BC. and finally calling the Shuswap their home for retirement, where they lived in Sun Valley Estates for the last 20 years. 

Sam is predeceased by her husband Jim, parents Simmy & Mary Travers, siblings, Wayne, Cliff & Myra Travers. 

Sam loved to travel and made friends everywhere she went impacting so many lives throughout her journeys and those close to home as well. She sky dived in her seventies, took the firearms training course and passed with flying colours because she, “Just wanted to know how to shoot a handgun dammit”. She was a force to be reckoned with and she was our Mum and we loved her. She put her stamp on the world and she will be missed.

There are no funeral services, as she requested, and in lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s society or the heart and stroke foundations of Canada.
