The following biographical information was shared in an email from the late Jean Panke, 2 November 2003:
Lorna, married to Harry Yourth. (Fred Yourth and Bertha Schmidt's son) I think if I count, they had 6 children. Two I believe are deceased. Years ago, after they had moved away from Golden Lake, Lorna took in a child from the the Children's Aid Society. She was almost like a nurse, good with children, this child was very small, I remember seeing him, and Lorna thought he might not live when she first started caring for him. She nursed, cared for him like no one else could. When he got a little older, Harry and Lorna wanted to adopt, they didn't want to lose him. Guess what? The child came from a Catholic family. the Yourth's were not. Then when the Children's Aid Society came to take him from the Yourth Family. They had to look for the child, the child went and hid, way up high in the woodshed. They found him, took him away against his will.

Lorna was heartbroken. I can remember later when she came to our house, my mother and Lorna crying. I can't recall how old I would have been at the time, nor how old the child was, but for a child to climb up in the woodshed to hide, he had to have been with the Yourth family for a number of years.

Lorna later, went to nursing school, she became a Nurses Aid. Worked in a Pembroke Hospital.)8

     In the obituary of Elizabeth Aileen Yourth who died 15 April 2016, Elizabeth's mother, Lorna Molkentin was listed as predeceased.9

The pain in the heart
Of not saying farewell!

Notes courtesy of Jean (Yourth) Panke, Nov 2, 2003:

If you notice a monument noted as Unknown at the Golden Lake Cemetery. It belongs to Adeline Yourth and Harry Bloedow, Adeline is a daughter of Fred Yourth and Bertha Schmidt. You would have them in your database. The surname is on one edge of the monument, the camera person missed it. They had one daughter, Brenda. She planned the Yourth Family Reunion, June of this year. She asked me to assist, which I did. She lives at the other end of the city from us.
I (Rick Moffa) passed the inormation about the missed name to Murray Pletch who was going to update his Northeaster Ontario Gravemarkers web site with the family name.7,3
