Lorna M. Gregrich passed away on June 1st, 2017, at the age of 85 due to incidents of age.  She was born at home in Lake Point, Utah, on October 3, 1931, to Joseph Stephen and Myrtle Davies Paget.  She grew up in Lake Point with many family members and friends and graduated from Tooele High school in 1949.  She meet her eternal companion, Arnold J. Gregrich at the age of 16 on a blind date.  They were married May 13th, 1950, and sealed on March 2nd 1956 in the Salt Lake Temple.  They endured a risky pregnancy to bring their only child, Lori, into the world.  She was the light of their life.  Lorna was a beautiful seamstress, making her own patterns and sewing her own designs.  She always took great pride in her appearance - shoes and purses always matched.  She also had the same attention to detail in her cooking and homemaking.  She was the epitome of woman and motherhood.  She enjoyed sewing wardrobes, and making many, many good treats for her three grandchildren as well.  She served in serveral church callings in the Tooele 1st Ward, with primary being her favorite.  She never had a driver’s license, flew in an airplane or took a trip in a boat.  She appreciated good comedy and loved reading the funnies in the paper, maple doughnuts, milk chocolate and country fried steak with gravy.

She is survived by her daughter Lori Smith (Gary), grandson Stephen (Rachelle), grandson Ryan (Julie), and granddaughter Erin (Brandon Bender).  Her great grandchildren are Brinley, Bryton, Alayna, Simon, Shayna, Sean, and Carden Smith.  Her surviving sister-in-law Venita Paget.  She is preceded in death by her husband, parents and brother Earl.

A Viewing will be held on Wednesday, June 7th, from 11a.m. – 12:45p.m. at the Tooele South Stake Center (1025 Southwest Drive).  Funeral Services will follow at 1p.m.

Interment will be held at the Tooele City Cemetery.

The family would like to thank the staff at Beehive Homes for their loving care of Lorna.
