Lorna Jean (Broome) Waldo Obituary
Waldo Lorna Jean (Broome) Waldo, 91, of Upper Arlington, entered into rest Sunday, March 24, 2013. She was born August 30, 1921 in Ironton, Ohio to the late Edward and Virgie Broome. She was a graduate of Ironton H.S. and attended Ohio University. Mom's family brought her the greatest pleasure and she enjoyed taking care of them. She was first and foremost a homemaker. She was an excellent cook - preparing the best fried chicken and green beans around. In addition, very special memories surround her famous noodles - offered only two times a year: Thanksgiving and Christmas. As our Dad was an avid golfer, at age 50, she decided that if she couldn't beat him, she would join him, and started taking lessons at Scioto CC. They spent many evenings at Scioto, and also enjoyed playing golf at their home away from home, Pelican's Roost on Sanibel Island. Mom also instilled a love of music in her children and grandchildren. She was an accomplished pianist, and spent many afternoons playing the piano for her own enjoyment. She was a longtime supporter of the arts - as she was a member of CAPA and the Columbus Symphony Orchestra and WOSU. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Ralph E.Waldo, grandson Michael Toothman, and sister Joyce Gleiss. Lorna will be missed by her children; Terry Waldo, Doug (Cherie Koss-Waldo) Waldo, and Kim (Barth) Toothman; grandchildren, Brett (Jill) Toothman, Mason (fiancé, Franny Kornacki), Avery Toothman, and Jessie Koss-Waldo; and brother, Paul "Ace" (Janet) Mende. A private interment will be held at Union Cemetery. Please join her family for a celebratory gathering on Sunday, April 21, 2013 from 2-4 p.m. at Ohio State University Golf Course Restaurant. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Lorna's memory to the Ronald McDonald House, 711 E. Livingston Ave., Columbus, OH 43205.
