She was raised and went to school in Central Valley. Lorna was one of nine children living in a rural area so learning her skills as a homemaker came naturally. Lorna loved to cook and garden initially out of necessity and later developed into a passion. As she grew older she learned to sew and found a new passion, interior decorating. She could sew projects, upholster and even hang wallpaper. She was as they say “a jack of many trades” and full of talent; if it needed to be done, she could do it.
