Lorna was born to Leroy Lewis Abbott and Annie Hastings Abbott on February 26, 1940 in Commerce, Texas. A longtime former resident of Las Animas, Lorna taught second grade there for many years. Much of her retirement was spent living in Sallisaw, Oklahoma, where she was blessed by many friendships and family.  She went to be with her Lord on November 25, 2017 in Thornton, Colorado at the age of 77.

Lorna is survived by her son, Michael (Nicole) Morley; three grandchildren, River, Sage, and Slate all of Silverdale, Washington; sister, Martha Rhoades of Thornton; three step children, Kimberly (Steven) Oliver of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Reese (Glenda) Pilkington of Sallisaw, Oklahoma, and Mark Pilkington of Sallisaw, Oklahoma; 5 step grandchildren; sisters-in-law, Wanda (Gil) Werdel and Joyce Hicks; brother-in-law, Jack (Carolyn) Morley; eight nieces and nephews; and a host of friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Charles Morley in 1984; and husband, Calvin Pilkington in 2016.

As Lorna’s first and most passionate goal in life was to spread the news of her Savior Christ, memorial contributions may be made to Gideon’s International in care of Horber Funeral Chapel, P.O. Box 431, Las Animas, CO 81054.
