Weafer Family Statement

FORT MCMURRAY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/09/14 -- Editor's Note: There is a photo associated with this press release.

We know the manner in which she died has led to a focus on her death, but we would like to share some insight into Lorna's life and her spirit.

Lorna Weafer was born in Ireland thirty-six years ago, immigrated to Canada with her family as a child and moved to Fort McMurray in 1981.

Lorna's warmth and compassion knew no bounds. She had a busy full life, loved her family and her dog.

She absolutely adored children and had volunteered as a Big Sister.

Lorna was a warm, conscientious person and she made fast friends.

Although Lorna had only been working with Suncor as an instrumentation tech since October, she was extremely well-liked and had many friends at the company.

Two weeks ago Lorna lost her beloved dog Abby. Abby had been her pal for 15 years.

Lorna was incredibly organized. She was an avid photographer, and was very artistic.

She had been talking about going back to study and become a psychologist because she loved helping people - she'd have helped anyone. And she often did.

She will be greatly missed by her immediate and extended family, and her many, many friends.

On behalf of our family we'd like to recognize the co-workers who tried to help Lorna. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We understand you are grieving as well and we are sending you our best regards.

Due to the sudden and tragic circumstances of Lorna's death, we are asking for privacy while we grieve.

Thank you
