In Loving Memory of Lorna Hager

April 20, 1949 – May 24, 2024

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Lorna Lynne Hager, a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend, who left us peacefully on May 24, 2024 at the age of 75 years after a brief illness surrounded by the love and comfort of her family.


Lorna Lynne Oxamitny was born on April 20, 1949, to John and Phyllis Oxamitny. She grew up on a farm near Kirriemuir with a passion for cooking, baking, canning and gardening that she perfected over the years and generously shared with family and friends. Her kitchen was always filled with the enticing aromas of her latest culinary creations, and she delighted in trying new recipes, always eager to surprise and nourish those around her.


Lorna was the beloved wife of Larry, with whom she shared 55 wonderful years of marriage until his passing in February 2024. Together, they built a life filled with love, laughter and unwavering support for their children, Lisa Benavides (Joseph) and Leon Hager (Janilea) and grandchildren, Kailea, Kiera, Austin and Colton.

Lorna and Larry shared 29 years of their early life together in Compeer.  Larry and Lorna took over the family tradition of farming and owning Hager Motors where they worked side by side. Lorna managed the Alberta Treasury Branch in the garage for many years and spent many hours manning the front desk of the garage. In 1997, Larry and Lorna embarked on a new chapter in Consort. Lorna worked for A & R Oilfield and then the UFA Bulk dealership before eventually retiring.

Lorna was a lover of sports and a huge cheerleader throughout the years. Lorna enjoyed playing softball, golf and riding horses in her younger days. She later became an enthusiastic cheerleader at Lisa, Kailea and Kiera’s softball games. She also spent countless games in the hockey rink cheering on Larry and Leon. You never had to look hard to find her as you could always hear her passionate support from the sidelines. Even when she couldn’t be there Lorna would cheer on her children and grandkids at whatever events they were participating in. 

Lorna enjoyed watching curling, rodeo and there was a good chance there was always a hockey game on the TV with Larry. Lorna loved reading, crafting and crocheting and made many afghans over the years.  She won grand aggregate at the KAC Fair a few times with her amazing baking and crafting. Lorna was always in the kitchen or in the garden, either at home or at the cabin, making sure everyone was well fed and that the garden was well tended. Her canned pickles, peaches and homemade soup as well as her cookies, pies and desserts, homemade perogies and cabbage rolls and big dinners were always loved by her family and friends.

Lorna enjoyed giving back to the community in her free time. Lorna helped at the KAC Fair until she moved to Consort. She then volunteered at the Consort Food Bank making sure she found the best deals for all the groceries and packing up the bags for those in need. Lorna also volunteered at the New to You store in Consort as well.  

Lorna was not only a devoted family member but also a dear friend to many. Her home was a welcoming haven where friends gathered to share stories, laughter, and her unparalleled hospitality. Her kindness, generosity and zest for life have left an indelible mark on all who knew her. Lorna’s legacy of wit, culinary talents and unwavering support for her family and friends will live on in our hearts forever.


Lorna is survived by her siblings, Larry Oxamitny (Loretta), Sharon Lorenz (Ken) and Carol Beier and her in-laws, Maureen Franklin (Roy), Ron Hager (Terrie), Terry Hager (Kathy), Lynne Miller (Ray), Cindy McFadden, Pat Hager (Irene) and David Hager (Jill) as well as many nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her husband, Larry; her mother and father, John and Phyllis Oxamitny; her father-in-law and mother-in-law, Nick and Kathleen Hager; her brother, Eddie Oxamitny; sister in-law, MaryAnne Oxamitny and brother-in-law, Larry McFadden.

Lorna, you will be deeply missed, but your spirit and love will continue to inspire us every day. Rest in peace.


A funeral for Lorna will be held on Friday, June 7, 2024, at 11:00 a.m. at the Consort Sportex. Lunch to follow. A private family interment will take place at the Compeer Cemetery. For those unable to attend in person, a live stream of the funeral will be available here on Lorna’s obituary page. A recording of the funeral will be uploaded to the same site, later that day.
