Lorna Kinghorn Obituary

Lorna Lou Waters Kinghorn, 87, passed away June 7, 2018, at her home in Lincoln Court in Idaho Falls. She has returned home to be with her parents.

Lorna was born Jan. 4, 1931, to Loran and Inez Crystal Waters in Garfield, Idaho. She traveled around the world with her family as her dad served in the military and graduated from Tokyo High School in Japan.

Upon returning to Idaho, she met the love of her life, George Kinghorn. They married Dec. 21, 1954, and were sealed in the Idaho Falls Temple on April 9, 1958. They were blessed with six wonderful children and had been happily married for 63 years.

Lorna was an active member of the LDS Church, where she served faithfully in many callings. Lorna and George served a mission to Baltimore, Maryland. She loved to serve her family and all those around her.

When not at her home in Ucon, she enjoyed spending time at her home on the Salmon River where she grew beautiful flowers and loved gardening. Many people have enjoyed the jam and fruit she canned. She loved to quilt and created many cherished quilts for her family. Her beautiful flower cards are treasured by everyone she shared them with. She will be missed by all those whose lives she touched.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Loran and Inez Waters; her brother, Max Waters; daughter-in-law, Yvonne Kinghorn; grandson, Josh Kinghorn; and great-grandson, Ethan Davis.

Lorna is survived by her husband, George Kinghorn; children: John and Debbie Kinghorn, of Nampa, Idaho; Gail and Charlie Lindsay, of Moapa, Nevada; Robert and Judy Kinghorn, of Jerome, Idaho; Loran and Kaylynn Kinghorn, of Idaho Falls; Ray and Kathy Kinghorn, of Saratoga Springs, Utah; and Kent and Diane Kinghorn, of Idaho Falls; along with 33 grandchildren, 51 great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her siblings: Dixie Wayment, of Nampa; Vonnie Wild, of Cokeville, Wyoming; Reba Hanson, of Boise; Reed Waters, of Boise; and Ginger Waters, of Meridian, Idaho; and sister-in-law, Shirley Lee, of Idaho Falls. Her family would like to thank Lincoln Court and Hands of Hope Hospice for their wonderful care.
