Lorraine was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her favorite calls included serving in the elementary school as a teacher, secretary, and president; serve young women as a counselor; choir pianist; and parish organist. Her mother Marva helped Lorraine learn to play the piano and organ. She enjoyed attending the temple with her family and serving others as often as she could. Lorraine gave her all in every call and made sure everything was as perfect as possible.
Lorraine’s service to others extended to the community. She has served in two Hooper PTA Presidencies, including once as President. She has also served as an electoral judge for numerous municipal and municipal elections in Hooper.
She enjoyed spending her younger years playing softball, volleyball, skiing and basketball. She even had the courage to go skydiving! Her passion for the sport also continued with her husband, family and others playing on the Co-Ed softball and volleyball teams, as well as skiing and tennis. She loved spending time outdoors and making the most of life. Once she became a mother, she spent years leading her children to and from various activities, especially soccer. She always found a way to get multiple kids to different areas and somehow managed to get to each kid’s soccer games, even though there were multiple games on the weekends. She has always enjoyed camping with her family and the families of her siblings. Camping trips to Tony Grove, Sunrise Campground, Southern Utah, and many other places were a frequent activity in the spring, summer, and fall. She was always up for a good four-wheeled trip too. Family, family, and family were her number one priority, and she found the joy of serving her family and being a mother and wife.
Lorraine also loved to travel and see the beauty of God’s creations. As a family, many lasting memories were created with multiple trips to Disneyland, Disney World and Hawaii. She was able to take many trips with her husband while he was traveling on business to Sacramento, California; Monterrey, California; Seattle, WA; Washington DC; Orlando, Florida; and Ft. Walton Beach and Destin, Florida.
