Obituary for Lorena Louise Smith

Lorena Louise Smith passed on August 27, 2018 at the age of 48. Lorena was born on January 9, 1970 in Belle Fourche, South Dakota to Frieda Rose and Loren Smith. She grew up in Belle Fourche with her parents and brother, Lonny Smith. She graduated with honors and journeyed out West.
Lorena moved to Oregon and graduated from Oregon State University with a major in Psychology. There, she met her husband and they were married shortly after. They moved to Washington D.C where she worked as a legal secretary. While living on the East Coast they had three children and then moved back to the West Coast in 2000. After the birth of her fifth child, she decided to pursue a new path. She subsequently divorced, produced multiple music albums, published a novel, and became ordained as a minister. She spoke at several venues, most notably, Unity of Salem, Unity by the Sea, and as opener for inspirational author Caroline Myss.
In the Spring of 2016 she was diagnosed with Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma. Against all odds, she spent two more years with her five children. She went peacefully surrounded by love in her own home. She was preceded in death by her brother, Lonny Smith, and her mother, Frieda Rose Smith. She is survived by her father, Loren Smith, and her five children, Jordan, Kalie, Tristan, Logan and Aliyah Ferry. She used her life experience as a vessel to touch and improve the lives of many. She was an inspiration to all and will be greatly missed.
The service will be held at The Evergreen Falls Events Center in McMinnville on September 20. Come help us celebrate her life over a potluck meal at 12pm.
