Lorene was such a sweet sweet lady! I worked with her for years at JoBelles. She was always one of the nicest, kindest ladies you could ever meet. I am so sad to hear of her passing.

I remember alot but mostly Lorene and my mother laying by the pool at the beach soaking up the 🌞. I also remember no matter where we went to eat she had to have a baked potato ! We would go to steakhouse and that's all she wanted was a baked potato . God bless her . Loved that woman and will NEVER forget her .

Dearest Ronnie, Lori, Rhonda and Family,

Aunt Estalene asked me to send a message to all. She said, "I am sorry that I was unable to be there for you". "The trip would have been too much". "Just know that your mother loved each of you dearly". Aunt Estalene also said, "Your mother is no longer suffering and is in a better place with Our Lord Jesus and His Heavenly Father, in their Garden". "I miss her so much".

Ronnie, Lori and Rhonda,

Mike and I (Madonna) are sending our deepest condolences on the loss of your mother. Her precious smile when she spoke of each of you and the grandchildren would light up the room. Each of you brought her so much joy. Know that your love and devotion to her, filled her days with happiness. May the Lord God Almighty and his Blessed Son, Jesus Christ, provide you comfort in your hour of need.

Aunt Estalene, Mike and Madonna

I met Lorene a great many years ago through my friendship with her son, Ron. Every time I went to one of their family gatherings, I gave her a hug. She was always nice to me and put up with my hugging.

Lorene lived a long life and has now turned the last page in her book of life. We all know that we will have to do that some day ourselves, but we would selfishly like to have her around for awhile longer. To her son and daughter, I will say that she will be missed by me and many others who got to know her over the years.

To all of her family and friends: Don't wallow in grief over a life that has passed on. When this health crisis is over, get together and celebrate her long life and the memories she has left behind.

Due to personal reasons, I will not be with you guys to say goodbye. But please know that you are all in my thoughts. I love Ron as a brother, and I am hurting for him tonight.
