Lorna Dick Obituary

Lorna Marlene Dick was born on March 20, 1957, in Brigham City, Utah, to Kenneth and Lorene Dick. She and her younger sister attended daycare at Intermountain Indian School, where their parents worked. The family moved to Perry, Utah, in time for Lorna to start school at Perry Elementary School. She attended Box Elder High School, where she played violin in the school orchestra. She graduated in 1975. She received B.S. degrees in Business Education in 1985 and in Logistics Management in 1987 from Weber State University. It was there that she met her longtime friend, Tammie Chance.

Her parents met skiing and Lorna and her two sisters were taken skiing in the mountains of Utah at early ages. Lorna later trained to become a member of the Ski Patrol.

Lorna began working at Hill Air Force Base in Ogden, Utah, in the F-16 Training Program in the summer of 1976. Her career took off when she became employed as a computer specialist at Hill Air Force Base’s Directorate of Communication systems from January 1, 1986 to December 31, 1986. While there, she captured a 1986 Systems for Command, Control, Communication and Computer Professionalism Award.

On February 29, 1988, Lorna joined Robbins Gioia, Inc. in Beavercreek, Ohio, as a Program Analyst, later transferring to Colorado in 1989. Following her move to Colorado she became employed by the Bureau of Land Management. In her final move, she left Colorado to return to her home state of Utah..

Lorna and Tammie were members of the Order of the Eastern Star, and Lorna qualified as a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution through the Dick family lineage.

Lorna was an avid reader and a shopper. Her gifts to her family for birthdays and Christmas always reflected a lot of thought and planning. While living in Colorado, Lorna adopted the first two of the cats that brought joy to her life. She and cross county driving, late arriving sister, Carolyn, sat and watched her first two kittens chase each other around her condominium until well after midnight that first year. Her last three cats have found homes with Tammie and Carolyn.

Lorna was preceded in death by her mother, father, and sister, Gillian Dickensen (UT). She is survived by her sister, Carolyn K. Dick (SD), nieces, Kayla Nicole Suzanne Dickensen (Jules Plowman) of Bideford, England, Kelsey Renee Marelius Dickensen (UT), Danielle “Dani” M. Dick (SD) and a nephew, Braeden J. Dick (SD).  

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, December 28, 2022, at the Light of the Valley Lutheran Church, 1074 N. Fairfield Rd., Layton, Utah 84041. Lorna will be buried with her parents in the Caprivi Church of God Cemetery, Caprivi, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania in the spring.

Special thanks go to Lorna’s neighbors for their help and concern in recent years. The family asks that memorial gifts be given to Utah’s CAWS (Community Animal Welfare Society) or your local animal shelter.
