Lorene was a special friend and inspiration to us and our young family when we moved to Huntsville in late 1960.
We enjoyed visiting her, Don and family in their home often. Lorene was a beautiful hostess, great cook and a special friend. Our sincere condolences to her family, as we know she will surely be missed.
