Lorna was born in Philadelphia, PA, graduated from Olney High School in Philadelphia, earned her Associates in Arts at Mohave Community College in Lake Havasu City, Bachelor of Arts in Education and Master of Education from Arizona State University, Mesa. She retired after teaching Art & Reading for many years in Mesa, AZ.
Lorna was a life-long learner. After retiring, she continued to engage her creative spirit in anything art related. She loved doing arts & crafts, teaching art classes to other retirees, participating in poetry, writing memoirs, collecting stamps, and so much more. She was an avid reader and loved to travel. She also enjoyed spending time with friends and family.
We ask that you remember Lorna as she lived – celebrating with family and friends: telling stories, laughing, and enjoying your favorite food and drink. She will be missed by all who loved her.
Due to the COVID virus, there will be no funeral service.
