RAYMOND - Lorena Margaret Shores, 82, of Raymond, died on Jan. 23, 2003 at her home in Raymond.

She was born in Sherwood, N.D., on Jan. 26, 1920 to Samuel and Magdalene (Johnson) Roberts and grew up in that area. She married Lee Shores on April 27, 1940 in Sunburst, Mont.

Mr. and Mrs. Shores moved to Washington in October 1948, where they raised four children. She was a homemaker who devoted her life and love to her family, including her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She was a faithful member of the Raymond First Baptist Church, and a shining example of God's love with all, especially children. Some of her favorite activities included knitting, sewing, gardening, crocheting, reading, and volunteering in the community.

She was a devoted wife, a wonderful mother and a great friend to many. We are so thankful that she was a part of our lives and we will miss her very much.

Mrs. Shores is survived by her husband, Lee at the family home in Raymond; two sons: Allan Shores of Aberdeen and David Shores of Raymond; two daughters: Laura Steward of Olympia and Anita Laine of Raymond; a brother: Wayman Roberts of Minot, N.D.; a sister Sylvia Sears of Milton, Fla.; nine grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.

There will be a memorial service on Monday, Feb. 3 at 1 p.m. at the Raymond First Baptist Church. The family would like any memorials to go to the Washington Talking Book and Braille Library, 2021 9th Avenue, Seattle, WA 98121-2783 in her memory.

Arrangements by Stoller's Mortuary in Raymond.
