I'm so glad I was able to see and have some time with Lorna at the reunion in Az a couple of years ago. Sorry to hear yet another class mate has died. I hope her family and loved ones are comforted with good memories. With Deepest Sympathies to those who will miss her. Mary Fay, Bend, OR

Such a kind and loving soul...and a Great Cook! Those who participated in the progressive brunch at the AZ reunion were fortunate to share in Lorna's signature caramel rolls.

I was so saddened to see this post on facebook. She had asked for prayers just a couple days before. I had no idea that the surgery was clearly for a serious condition. Where Lorna and I were both Johnsons we would be in many classes together etc. I think it was because of the alphabet...but maybe it was just meanr to be. Never did an unkind work come out of her mouth. I will remember her as a happy person and always interested in others. Such a gift that is.
Thank you for her recipe. That is one that I need to copy and paste. Something like that is a treat to share at the holidays or when special family gatherings are on the schedule. I will rermember her when I make them. Thanks Deb for posting it here.
God Bless her family as they move into living life without her. We miss her, and I can imagine the loss to close friends and family.

I'm very sad to hear of Lorna's passing. We grew up only a block away from each other on West Broadway. We both went to Webster school. We were never really close friends but I know she was a good and kind person. I wish I could have gotten to know her better. God bless her memory.
God seems to be takingall the good ones. Lorna was the best there ever was or evervwill be.
The Arizona reunion will forever be Lorna's. Peace and much love Lorna.

I still can't believe she is gone. We had lunch together last summer at Homesteader's in Minot. She was taking a break from caring for her husband. We talked about many things, the reunion, her husbands condition, her children, and her health.
We always had 3-4 Words With Friends games going. The last two were never completed. We did, however, talk about her health. She said she was on oxygen 24/7 and her heart and lungs were okay. She talked again, about her husband and how his condition had deteriorated. I think she nursed him for years. So ironic he out-lasted her.
When we were flooded, she was one of the first to respond. I'll never forget it. She said, "We don't have much money, but could we pay for some cleaning supplies?" That was Lorna; always kind, always giving, always happy.
Yes, I'll remember her cinnamon rolls, and the many recipes she posted on Facebook, but it's who she was as a person I will always remember and look up to. Bye, my friend; rest in His care.
