After marriage, the couple moved from Montana to Albert Lea where Lorna stayed at home to take care of the house. She later went to work for Land O’Lakes. In her free time she loved to take trips to Canada where she could camp and fish. She was an animal lover and had a special love for dogs. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends. Her door was always open at her house and the coffee pot was always full.

She is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Wally; siblings Lester (Annie) Flo, Arlo (Helma) Flo, Ronald (Beverly) Flo, Marlin Flo and Glorian Kennedy; and a brother in-law, Harry Green.

Those left to cherish her memory are her siblings JoAnn Green, Donna Arneson, and Dale (Barbara) Flo; sister in-law, Mavis Flo; aunt, Judy Laura; as well as many other loving nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

The family of Lorna would like to extend a very special thank you to the staff at St. John’s Lutheran Community for the exceptional care they gave to Lorna.
