She enjoyed volunteering and reading in her spare time. She was a master at both playing cards and the word game Scrabble.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband; brothers: Charles and William; and sisters: Esther Ober and Barbara Deming. Lorna will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
