As a friend of Anita, I often had the opportunity to join the Kee family for Sunday dinner and an afternoon of play between morning church and evening church. I remember her serving a beautiful roast dinner and Mr Kee carving. I aspired to copy that scene as I raised my family. Today my kids still call a roast dinner “Sunday” dinner. Lorraine inspired me as I grew up to serve & love God and those around me. She lived a life to be celebrated and I’m sure, her faith and love have been copied throughout the lives of her children, grand children and great grandchildren, as well as us “church kids” who grew up watching.

Miss Lorraine was an AMAZING friend! Beautiful inside and out. Always ready to spend her time helping, playing a game, putting a puzzle together. She would come to dinner at a moments notice or call us to come her way. She was always ready to pray, bake cookies, help transport friends to appointments or just listen. Her home and yard were immaculate. I will miss her but know she is at peace with the Lord she served and Mr. Bill.

Her love will always be a part of our memory of her.

Our family met the Kee family at the Longmont Assembly of God Church, to find out that they had moved-in, next door to us on Hygiene Road. You see, there was a huge, block long, farm field, and a few trees, between our homes, there, in Hygiene, CO. I remember that their home was a yellow cinderblock house. The Kee family turned out to be great neighbors, though, as a teen, I was a little older than the Kee boys. But, I had seven younger siblings that may have matched closer to the ages of the Kee children. I try not to remember our family string quartet, "performing" at offering time, at Sunday-night church services.
I always looked up to, and admired Mr. and Mrs. Kee. I lost track of them when I joined the Navy, but I knew that my siblings were still close to their children. Willa's future husband, Wayne, was my best-man at my wedding in Greeley, Oct. 1969. I think that he must have been good luck because my wife, Sharon, and I celebrated our 51st last Fall.
I, and my siblings share your sorrow, but we wish the very best future for all the Kee children, grandchildren, and great- grandchildren. Leroy Boddy

It was a pleasure meeting Lorraine, She always kept me in line. It was always an adventure doing her hair. We had lots of laughs and oh my's. She is dearly missed. Miss seeing her face on Friday mornings. Lorraine always had a positive attitude and looked to the positive on everything. It was a joy knowing Lorraine, she made the world a better place.

My condolences to you all. Lorraine always had such a sweet spirit about her and gave so much of herself helping others. Our parents' generation were true servants. I'm thankful I was able to see Lorraine one last time in February of 2020 at my dad's funeral. May you experience God's comfort as you grieve. Imagine the joy your mom must be experiencing meeting Jesus and being reunited with her loved ones. Blessings and prayers. Lynda (Scarbrough) DeRemer

Lorraine has been such an inspiration to us. She showed her love of God and others daily and was so positive all the time.
She was a dear friend and will be missed here on earth but we rejoice with her in heaven.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Lorraine. She is one of the finest women I have ever met. I enjoyed sitting with her in church services and our potlucks. She, Elaine Horn and I were the ones to set up for the communion services and then do the clean up afterwards. Lorraine was always always ready for those chores. She always talked about her family with such love and admiration for all of them. I will miss her. But I know that she is with our Lord Jesus now and is not in pain any more. I thank God for putting her into my live. God rest her soul. Respectfully, Pat Smith
