Lorraine D Atherly “Gramma Rainy”

“The strength of a Mother’s Prayer exceeds all.” Mom passed away quietly October 21, 2017 in Burley, Idaho. She was welcomed into this world on November 23, 1931 by her parents Mansel G. and Lois Wolverton. Grandpa brought her into this world in the middle of a blizzard in Arnold, Nebraska. She grew up in South California with her brother Gerald and sister Bernadine. She married the love of her life Clifford Atherly Jr. December 14, 1951. She became a mother on October 22, 1952 when she gave birth to her only child Brenda Sue Atherly Allen. Her life centered around her family and church.

Lorraine worked as a crossing guard, security guard and as a CNA. She always saw the beauty in life whether it was a blooming rose or a homeless child. She lived life for other people, often times neglecting herself. Her love for God was evident in every aspect of her life. In the last year of her life she recommitted herself to God and was baptized along with her daughter Brenda Allen, dedicating her family to the Lord.

Lorraine is survived by her daughter Brenda Sue (Atherly) Allen, 3 grandchildren, Erik Monson, Brett Monson, Melynda Polunas and 6 great grandchildren. She is preceded in death by her parents, 2 siblings, and husband Clifford.
We wish to thank the staff at Mini-Cassia Care Center for the loving care given to Mom. She loved you all.

Viewing for Family and friends will be held 2:00 p.m. Saturday, October 28, 2017 at Valley View Memorial Park West Valley City, UT with graveside committal to follow. Services are under the direction of Joel Heward Hansen Mortuary.
