Gladys Lorene Rayon passed away May 21, 2006 in Spokane at the age of 80. Lorene was born on July 17, 1925 in Colville, Washington, the daughter of Arthur A. and Myrtle E. (Burgess) Owen. Lorene graduated from Deer Park High School in 1943. She was married to Earl B. Rayon from 1951 to 1967. She worked as a cook and manager in Spokane throughout the years, particularly at the coffee shops of Union Pacific Railroad, Great Northern Railroad and Wandermere Golf Course. She also lived and worked for a number of years in Portland, Oregon. Lorene loved craft work, and was known for her silk flower arrangements and other creative gifts that she designed and shared with family and friends. A true dog lover, she shared her home with many little dogs through the years. She was an avid fan of the Seattle Mariners baseball team and was beloved by all for her feisty character, kindness and independence. She is survived by a daughter, Cheryl Vota, Seattle; sons Larry and Greg Rayon, Whidbey Island; five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
