Lornell was born and raised in New Orleans, LA and attended St. Joseph Academy.
She met the love of her live while working at Michoud Assembly Center in New Orleans.
Lornell and Henry were married on November 14, 1964 at St. Rose de Lima Catholic
Church in New Orleans. They made Terrytown their home for 35 years, moving to
Mandeville in 2001. Lornell was beautiful inside and out. She was a true witness to her
Catholic faith and radiated love and grace to all those she encountered. Lornell was a
loving wife and mother and special to so many people. She had many childhood friends
and continued to enjoy their company during luncheons and playing Canasta. There are
no words to describe how much she was loved and how greatly she will be missed. May
her soul rest in peace.
