Lorena was highly involved and supportive throughout her children's lives, whether it be Boy Scouts, piano lessons, volleyball, or crew. Lorena's diagnosis never wavered her devotion to her husband, children, family, and friends. Even in her last days, Lorena never succumbed to her illness and courageously fought to rejoin her family, friends, and community in good health.
