Lorraine Bahr

Lorraine Dalley Bahr left her frail little body May 21, 2016 to be eternally with her Heavenly Father. Preceded in death by her husband, Max and grandson, Jonathan, Lorraine was a very special lady who didn't have a bad word to say about anyone. When she was young Lorraine and her cousin Delia were known as the sweetest girls of the bunch. Every year until she was married, Lorraine and Linda went to their mother's grandparents for the summer. She learned to tend turkeys and grandpa taught her to drive a tractor to feed the turkeys, when she was only ten. The turkeys would peck at her ankles and her Grandma would treat the sores with salve, but she never complained, because she loved driving the tractor so much. The girls would feed the bum lambs with a bottle and nipple, and the lambs became trained to pull the nipple off, causing the girls to go get another bottle. Lorraine was talented and did many crafts. Many friends and family members received crocheted items like hot pad holders, wall decorations, afghans, slippers.....the list is almost endless! She had a passion for stitching (a special stitch written in Japanese) pictures. Some as large as 2 feet by 3 feet. The entire canvas was stitched!!!!! Her husband, Max, would build the frames in his workshop and mount the pictures. As her eyes started fail, sadly, she had to put her stitching away. Lorraine made wherever she lived her home from the hot Valley of the Sun to the cool Mountains of Vernal where she and Max retired. Lorraine was the first one to offer her time and help when her family or friends needed help. She wasn't always happy with the cards she was dealt, but she played her hand very well, putting her faith in the Lord. Her past few years have been spent in the care of the loving staff at the Beehive Home where she received excellent care. Her little frail body and nearly blind eyes made life challenging for her but she endured her trials well and is now, once again, beside Max as his little bride. Lorraine was also preceded in death by her mother, Thora Nielsen Twitchell, father Frank Verle Dalley, stepfather Lou Twitchell and sister Lanise. She leaves behind her son, Rick (Denise) 3 grandchildren, 4 great grandchildren, 4 sisters, 2 brothers, and many nieces and nephews. Lorraine will be missed on this earth. "Until we meet again, Mother, sister, grandmother and aunt, you are loved." Funeral Services will be held Wednesday, May 25, 2016 at 11:00 AM at the Blackburn Vernal Mortuary. A viewing will be held at the Blackburn Vernal Mortuary from 9:00-10:45. Burial will be in the Maeser Fairview Cemetery.
