She’s Gone

Lon & LoraLee 001Our dear daughter-in-law LoraLee died Sunday evening, losing her hard fought battle with cancer.  Lonn, Katie and Laci tenderly cared for her at home these last two weeks  and she died with them by her side.  Her suffering is finally over.

LoraLee was one of the strongest women I have even known—one of six children raised on a ranch in the Bears Paw Mountains in northern Montana—the last few years were tough on LoraLee and still she showed such strength.    She and Lonnie raised two beautiful, responsible children, Katie and Laci and LoraLee was so proud of her two son-in-laws, Michael and John. 

LoraLee was an excellent quilter and knitter turning out beautiful gifts for her family and friends.  No one ever went hungry at Lonn and LoraLee’s—she could put on a feed to say the least.  She rode horses well and loved her dogs. 

Her family was her life and we will miss her so much.  Rest in peace dear LoraLee.

  27. Please add my condolences on your loss. Cancer is such a horrible disease. My husband has Multiple Myeloma, which is a non-curable cancer of the blood and bone marrow, but had six progression-free years before it came roaring back in November of 2013. We are thankful for those years.

    Virtual hugs,

  33. The sorrow we feel is measured most often by the Joys we knew. It's the bitter sweet truth of this life. We all come and go. To live and die with a close family and so many friends... and to do that in Montana... Her Life could be no better.
