Lorna Dee Vickroy, 73, of Colfax, Wash., and formerly of Juliaetta, Idaho, passed away September 23, 2020, at Pullman Regional Hospital.
Lorna was born February 20, 1947, in Dayton, Wash., to Olen & Alma (Day) Thompson. She grew up in Montana, Lewiston, Idaho, and Bonners Ferry, Idaho. Following graduation from high school Lorna attended college for a while before beginning her career as a bookkeeper. Through the years she worked as a bookkeeper in various banking capacities. Lorna married Joe "Sunny" Vickroy on March 17, 1978, in Corvallis, Montana.
The family lived in Kentucky, Montana, before moving to California. They returned to Idaho, settling in Kamiah where they lived until moving to Juliaetta, Idaho. Lorna moved to Colfax, Wash., following Sunny's death in 2014 to be near her daughters.
She enjoyed the outdoors and loved to hunt, fish and camp. Family vacations were especially cherished as were all the special memories that were made. Lorna was a loving wife, mother and grandmother, who adored her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. One of the family's fondest memories was a trip to Canada, where later in her life Lorna went zip lining. Her smile that day will be forever remembered.
Lorna is survived by her daughters Donna (Dave) Wilson of St. John, Wash .; Lynette (David) Rummer of Albion, Wash .; two sisters Sharon Adcock of Colorado and Betty Thompson of Libby, Mont .; her six grandchildren Charles, Briana, Brittany, Uriah, Mackenzie & Aidan; and her great grandchildren Kimora, Kotah, Adleigh, Payton & Macie. In addition to her husband Sunny, Lorna was preceded in death by her parents and two brothers Buz and Sonny.
Lorna's family will celebrate her life in a private family gathering. Bruning Funeral Home of Colfax, Wash., has been entrusted with arrangements. Memorial donations are suggested to the American Cancer Society. Online condolences may be sent to http://www.bruningfuneralhome.com
