Loralee Huber Thompson, longtime resident of Lodi and Stockton, passed away on May 11th, 2018.
Loralee was born in Thatcher, Arizona and grew up in Mesa, Arizona. She graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in Home Economics. Her first teaching position took her to Stockton, California where she met and married Thomas Paul Thompson from Peterson, Utah. After teaching 3 years, Loralee left teaching to raise and nurture her 5 children. Loralee was a life-long member and actively involved in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, serving in a variety of callings. Once her children were all in school, she was a substitute teacher in the Lodi Unified School District and ended her 20-year career teaching home economics at Morada Middle School. Since her retirement, she has spent time traveling and with family and friends. She has also been an active docent at the SJ County Historical Museum.
Loralee is survived by her 5 children: Sheryl, Bruce (Elisa), Scott (Jodi), Loriann, and Brian (Becky); 16 grandchildren: Steve (Heather), Laura (Jeff), Richard (Rachelle), Jordan, Madeline, Camille, Cassie, Ryan, Collin, Kara, Brooke, Tucker, Bethani, Russell, Shane, and Owen; and 7 great-grandchildren: Holly, Kayla, Connor, Addison, Olivia, Nathan, and Andrew.
Loralee was preceded in death by her husband and by her parents, Waldo & Ida Huber. She is survived by her siblings: Paul Huber (Shirlene), Carol Dana, and Mary Martin (Dennis).
She was an incredible person, a talented cook, baker, seamstress, homemaker, teacher, wife, mother, grandmother, and more. She will be truly missed.
