She loved chatting with the ladies, and family members, and face-timed with family that did not live close by. Lorna enjoyed doing art and crafts, and trying her luck at Bingo. She had quite the collection of Angels throughout the years. Above all things, Lorna loved spending time with her family, and hosting holidays. Her philosophy was the more people the better.
