Lorna Diana Mauth was born Sept. 19, 1965, in Alamosa, the daughter of Wendell and Janet (Davis) Mauth.
She was raised in Walden, where she lived until her sophomore year in high school at which time her family moved to Hayden.
Lorna graduated from Hayden High School in 1984.
She married Larry “Allan” Suits on May 21, 1988, in Hayden, and they became the parents of four children. They made their home in Hayden until her husband’s death in June 2005 and Lorna moved her family to Craig.
Lorna was a very family oriented person and enjoyed reading, photography, camping and watching wildlife. She was employed at the Craig and Steamboat Job Service Centers for several years.
For the past seven years she has worked with the residents of the Haven Assisted Living Facility in Hayden. Lorna deeply cared for the residents and it was obvious they felt the same.
