Lurlene was born on July 5, 1913 in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia. She worked as a Trained Aid until her retirement at Old Grace Hospital in Detroit. Lurlene was a longtime member of Milan Baptist Church. She enjoyed traveling every spring and fall back to the mountains where she grew up.

Lurlene also leaves a loving family of nine grandchildren and their families, 21 great grandchildren and their families and 12 great great-grandchildren.
Preceding her in death was her loving friend; Aunt Alice Stevens, her grandson Danny Rorrer; her mother and father, five siblings and several of their family members.
Grandmas; as we called her, will be returned to her loved Blue Ridge Mountains and be buried in the family graveyard. Because she was a 38-year cancer survivor, the family requests those desiring to make contributions to the American Cancer Society in her memory.
