Obituary & Service Info

Lottie K. Skrine

Ladies and Gentlemen on behalf of HILLCREST ABBEY WEST please accept our sincere condolences for your loss. We are honored to serve alongside FairHaven as we care for the family of Mrs Skrine. And I thank you for the words of comfort given by the minister of the Gospel.(Only if appropriate) Today we have the opportunity to celebrate the life of Mrs. Lottie Skrine. I had the opportunity to sit down with Sharon and her husband and ask them to describe Lottie to me. They told me (s)he was Loving, very determined, always helping and extremely charitable with her time. When I asked what some of the most important events in Lottie’s life would have been, I was told that her life revolved around her husband Harold. And when he passed a few years back her focus shifted to her granddaughter Ashley, and her great granddaughter Brianna. Sharon shared the story of how Harold and Lottie met. Harold was stationed in Germany during World War II and one evening he saw a beautiful German girl going into the Opera. Even though Harold was not a fan of the Opera and had never been before, He purchased a ticket so that he could meet this beautiful girl. Long story short, Despite not speaking the same language they were married, 3 times, and ended moving back to the states. It was a family joke that since Harold and Lottie had been married 3 times, they wondered if they would have to get divorced three times. Lottie loved to travel in their RV and her favorite place to visit was the Smokey Mountains. Lottie was very involved with the Bible Baptist church and was a member of the Master Sunday School Class. So in honor of Mrs. Skrine, you will have found sitting on your chairs (her) favorite snack: Milky Ways. Our hope is that you would enjoy some of Lottie’s favorites while you take a little time with her family and talk about some of the memories you have of her; while also listening to some of Lottie’s favotie 1960’s Rock n Roll music. You will also notice pictures being taken today and there are some register pages available to sign. These will be bundled together in a dvd and presented to the family at a later date – so please take advantage of them. Also, at the conclusion of the committal, we will have a dove release. This will take place right over here, so when we are dismissed, if you can gather just out from the tent there. In closing, the Hillcrest family wants you to know that we will care for Lottie as we care for our own family members that have already past. And it is our prayer that The LORD bless you and keep you; the LORD make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the LORD lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace – both today and in the days to come. DOVE RELEASE In the Old Testament, the Psalmist David writes: “O that I had wings like a dove! I would fly away and be a rest” We have this promise today to know that Lottie is at rest in heaven. This dove release is symbolic – three white doves will be released which represent the Trinity: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. As we watch the three doves fly to the heavens, a single white dove will be released which represents the spirit of our departed loved one. You will see it meet with the Trinity in the air and they will take their journey home together. This is a beautiful promise that we have, to know that Lottie has taken her heavenly flight. With this release of the doves, I give you a symbol of eternal love and
