Lorraine Chambers Met | News, sports, jobs

March 27, 1960 – August 17, 2021

Lorraine, our beautiful wife, mother and grandmother, died on Tuesday the 17th. Lorraine was born in Ogden, UT, to Lionel and Marva Chambers. She is the ninth of eleven children. On December 9, 1983, she married her best friend and eternal companion, Lance Mead, in the Salt Lake Temple. They were married for almost 38 amazing years. They have six children and five grandchildren, and another is currently on the way. She grew up in North Ogden, UT and lived in Seattle, WA, South Ogden, and for the past 35 years lived in Hooper, UT. She was a full-time housewife, mother, cook, taxi driver at soccer games, peacemaker and grandmother. She was known fondly as “Mama Met” and often said it was time for one “Mummy” Wait a minute and would give all of us much-needed guidance and advice on many topics. She did everything with a smile on her face and made sure everything she met felt loved. Service and service were her passion and love, not just for her family but for everyone she met. A true disciple of Jesus Christ.

She leaves behind her loving husband Lance Mead, her six children Tyler (Rebecka) Mead, Darren (Michelle) Mead, Heidi Mead, Kevin (Kailey) Mead, Justin Mead, Chrystal (Miguel) Ibarra and five grandchildren, Tylin, Maylie, Lincoln, Beckham and Noah out with another. She is also survived by her 10 siblings: Linda Stoddard, Craig (Rosemary) Chambers, Randy (Karla) Chambers, Gary Chambers, Reid (Shirley) Chambers, Lonnie (Lyman) Barker, Lori (Brad) Reeves, Rod (Chris) Chambers , Kelly (Miriam) Chambers and LeeAnn (Andy) Lippert. Also her brother-in-law and sister-in-law: Jeff (Jan) Mead, Greg (Karen) Mead, Gary (Lorraine) Mead and Leisa (Bob) Bodily and their dear mother-in-law Charlann Mead.

Her father and mother, Lionel and Marva Chambers, father-in-law Maurice Mead, brother-in-law Douglas Stoddard and her nephew Ryan Chambers and his cute daughter Evee as well as many beloved aunts preceded in death and uncles.

Lorraine was a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Her favorite jobs were elementary school teaching, secretary, and president; Service to young women as a counselor; Chorus pianist; and ward organist. Her mother Marva helped Lorraine play the piano and organ. She loved going to the temple with her family and serving others as often as possible. Lorraine gave everything in every calling, making sure everything was as perfect as possible.

Lorraine’s service to others extended to the community. She served two Hooper PTA presidencies, including one as president. She also served as an elective judge for many Hooper City and Civic elections.

She enjoyed spending her young years playing softball, volleyball, skiing, and basketball. In fact, she was brave enough to go skydiving! Her passion for the sport also continued with her husband, family, and others playing on co-ed softball and volleyball teams, and playing skiing and tennis. She loved spending time outdoors and making the most of life. When she became a mother, she spent years driving her children to and from various activities, particularly soccer. She always found a way to get multiple kids into different areas and somehow managed to make it to every kids’ soccer game, even if there were multiple games in a weekend. She has always enjoyed camping with family and her siblings’ families. Camping trips to Tony Grove, Sunrise Campground, Southern Utah, and many other locations were a common activity during the spring, summer, and fall. She was also always ready for a good ride on the SUV. Family, family, and family came first, and she found joy in serving her family and being a mother and wife.

Lorraine also loved to travel and see the beauty of God’s creations. As a family, many lasting memories were made with multiple trips to Disneyland, Disney World, and Hawaii. She was able to travel extensively with her husband when he was in Sacramento, CA on business; Monterrey, CA; Seattle, WA; Washington, DC; Orlando, Florida; and Ft. Walton Beach and Destin, FL.

We would like to thank the many doctors, nurses, technicians and specialists at the Huntsman Cancer Institute who, with great love and care, have provided Lorraine with first-class professional care that has allowed us three additional and blessed years with Lorraine. We would also like to thank you for the wonderful, loving service that the doctor, the nurses, the CNAs, the social worker and the chaplain of the hospice organization of the Community Nursing Service (CNS) did during the last month of life in Lorraine. They were truly earthly angels and provided them with much-needed comfort, compassion, and care.

In her honor, a tour will be held at the Hooper Stake Center, UT 5375 S 5900 W Hooper, UT 84315, from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Friday, August 27, 2021 to celebrate her life.
