Lorene’s Family: So shocked to read about Lorene’s passing. She can now be with Tom. She was a good friend, a good wife and a good Mother. She had a heart of gold. I offer my love to all of her family and pray for comfort to each one. With love, Mary Blackman

When I think of Aunt Lorene I always see that smile and hear the laughter. She always had her sidekick Aunt Geri by her side. She had a lot of memories to share of the adventures she had with Uncle Tom, Geri and Ed. Now she’s with them in heaven sharing those stories once again! She was loved by everyone who knew her! Praying for her family!

She was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever known! We served the Lord over at Eastport Baptist church for a long time, then they came to Dunns Creek. I worked in school service and would see her at San Mateo school.
It didn't matter where you seen her she was such a sweet lady with a lot of Grace! She was always checking on me to see if I needed anything......lovely lady wii never forget. You will Rest In Peace now with our Lord and Saviour! Praying for the family at this sad time,look you and your Mom will be looking down on you. The Millers love you💙💙🌹🌹🙏🙏
