Lorena Blanche LeHew

Lorena was born on June 9, 1928 in Muscatine, Iowa to Omar and Letha Hobert. She spent the majority of her life in Davenport, Iowa where she and her husband of 65 years; Charles (Bud) LeHew raised their four children.
Lorena was a sports enthusiast, and loved watching her children and grandchildren on the playing field. Her battle cries being Go Baylor Bears and Go Hawkeyes.
Lorena loved to dance and even into her later years could be found dancing with her favorite partner “The Dreaded Red Walker” to her favorite 40’s music, which she would be singing out of tune to, while keeping the beat by snapping her fingers. She was a marvelous mother and friend, sassy, silly, compassionate and loving. She will be greatly missed.
