Lorraine Murray Hunter Leatham – St George News

Nov. 4, 1929-Jan. 15, 2023

Lorraine Murray Hunter Leatham, age 93, passed away Jan. 15, 2023, in Draper, Utah. She was born Nov. 4, 1929, in Ogden, Utah, to Theodore Vernon Murray and Effie Merle Dimick. She was married to Melvin Carl Hunter on Sept. 5, 1951, in the Salt Lake Temple.

Lorraine was raised in Ogden where she attended Weber High School and Weber Academy. She was a wonderful cook, cake decorator and chocolate dipper. Most of all she was a loving kind person, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

Mel and Lorraine moved to Bountiful where they raised their four children. She is survived by all four of them: Melvin Roy Hunter, Janet Woolley (David), Lynn Carl Hunter (Terri) and Sheila Penman (David); and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren whom she loved very much. Lorraine is also survived by her sister Joan Gifford Dalton.

Lorraine was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served faithfully in many callings. Her favorite was probably her 10 years of service at the Jordan River Temple.

After the passing of Melvin in 1992 she met and married William Wallace “Wally” Leatham. They were married for nine very happy years until Wally’s passing in 2005.

The family would like to thank the caring workers at Ashford Assisted Living Center and the kind and loving staff at Inspiration Hospice Care.

Mom, you will be missed by your entire family. Each one of us still thinks that we are your favorite.
