I have many memories of Lorene during my days in Soaphollow while attending Johnstown Mennonite School. For one year, my sister, Myra lived in her home. Lorene was advisor to the girl's sewing circle as well. In high school, I never realized how relatively few years there were between us. My condolences to the siblings left on this earth and to her children. Lorene was/is a very special lady. I believe she was actually a distant cousin of mine as well!

We do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize- he was tested in every way we are- including loss. Please accept my warmest condolences.
