Lorene worked in healthcare for 35 years, both in the nursing home industry and then finally in-home healthcare. Her first love was the Lord, and she had been a member of the former Bluffton Baptist Church. She loved to sing and pray all of the time. She also loved late night trips for coffee, as well as watching Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. Her pride and joy was her grand doggie, Scrappy. He visited her every day and gave her loads of kisses.
