Loralee loved the sunshine, whether it be on the golf course, or gardening and caring for her beautiful yard. On vacations, she and her family explored the west coast and Intermountain region playing golf courses from Montana to Southern California, and everywhere in between. In retirement she continued with her gardening and taking care of her mom and dad as well as her grandkids. She enjoyed regularly visiting her grandkids and the beach in Florida. She always provided unconditional love and support to her children and grandchildren.

Loralee is survived by her Son Darin and Daughter Jill. Her Sisters Tammy (Bill) Keller and Jamie Deyoe. Her grandchildren Colin Rivas, Kirstena (Trevor) Sloan, Lauren Rivas, Adrian Amghouz, her great granddaughter Madison Rivas, nephews and nieces Chad Keller, Cory Keller, Kevin Keller, Kim Keller, Kristin (John) Justice, Jade (Lis) Deyoe and numerous great nieces and great nephews she loved dearly. And despite her constant request for more great grandchildren, she got great grand dogs... She learned to love them.
