Lorna was a great teacher—part of that Terrace 2nd Grade team. She was a wonderful caring person at school and at her church. Don, may the love of friends and family carry you through this sad time.

I remember Lorna from Woodston, Kansas where we in the same grade 1 through 10. Before either of us could drive. I remember the MURPHY and Painter grocery store It was in a two story brick building on the south side of main street. We, our class, Were in grade school in a tall, brick building south and west of "downtown"

Lorna always had a smile on her face and kind words of encouragement. She was part of a teaching team that truly made learning fun for kids. I will always be grateful that my children, Andrew and Heidi, had the opportunity to cross paths in this journey of life with such a positive role model during their elementary years at Terrace.

I’m so sorry to hear of Lorna’s passing. I only knew her from visiting my mother, who also just recently passed, at Trinity Center. I loved seeing her there.

My condolences goes out to Lorna’s family.

I'm the eldest daughter of Wilma, Lorna's older sister. As children my siblings and I loved the holidays and birthdays when Aunt Lorna would visit. She was so beautiful and even then had a gift with kids. She never failed to delight us ;reading our favorite stories, complete with different voices for each character and sound effects! Her gifts were often hand crafted and one of a kind. Her christmas packages were always the prettiest of all. Sadly she and
