Lorna was born October 17, 1927 to W. Waldo and Maurine Bateman in Alpine. She graduated from American Fork High School and Brigham Young Academy.
She married Don Earl Devey on May 20, 1946 in the Salt Lake Temple. They shared forty-four wonderful years together. Don passed away on October 13, 1990.
She is survived by her children: Lee and Susan Devey, Katherine and Robert Chatfield, Kim and Glen Fernstrom, and Kelly and LaVon Devey, twenty-two grandchildren, and thirty-five great-grandchildren.
In 1996, she married Rex Larson of Lehi. There were many nights of playing games and watching basketball with close friends. His children: Lynn (Diane) Larson, Neila (Steven) Peterson, Lloyd Larson, and Janet (Fred) Kay, nine grandchildren, and twenty-nine great-grandchildren.
She retired from the U.S. Postal Service after fifteen years of service and never forgot an address. She loved doing book work for Don and Dave Devey Excavation. In the early years she even drove the dump truck. There was nothing she couldn't do.
Crocheting with her sisters, doing puzzles, watching her grandchildren play ball, gardening, going river rafting, and trips to Hawaii were some of her greatest passions. She never forgot a birthday and always made sure she had a cake to celebrate. She loved her family and will be dearly missed.
