Not only was Aunt Lorene a loving aunt to my siblings and I, but she was a great friend to my dad and mom, Dennis and Peggy Holley. It was not unusual to see Aunt Lorene driving my dad around when he was so sick. Mom and dad often went out to her home and played cards.

She will be missed and was very loved by everyone she shared her infectious smile with.

My heart ❤ goes out to the entire family. Aunt Lorene was a kind, special lady throughout her life. She laughed often and was not only a sister in law to my Mom but a true friend as well.

I enjoyed each and every time I spent time with her as a child and our time recently.

Never be sad of her departure - she is pain-free now and smiling. The "red robins" are about us.

I was blessed to grow up with Lorene as a close neighbor and '2nd Mama'. She was one of the nicest and most loving people I've ever known. I remember what a great sense of humor she had and how she was always fun to be around. She will live on in my heart with so many wonderful memories. My love and condolences to her family.

I worked with Lorene at DuPont in the early 70's and remember her as one of the sweetest, most helpful, and pleasant employees I ever knew. I'm glad to know that she lived a long life. Her spirit will no doubt continue to live on in the lives of those friends and family who were fortunate enough to know her. May God bless and comfort you in your loss of dear Lorene.
