I am Sue Kamps, the daughter of Lorene Sutton Kamps who passed away 11/19/2011. The memorial service date for Lorene in May 8th, 2pm at the Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Fallon. Her ashes will be interred at the Churchill County Cemetery following the service. Lorene was a member of the Fallon community long ago. She was born 1/23/23, too long ago to enter on this profile. She worked at NAS Fallon as a secretary for the Red Cross where she met her husband Harold Kamps. They were married in Fallon, 11/3/1945, then off on a 25 year career as a Navy wife. The family just wanted to make this last & final notice for Lorene. Thank you. Sue Kamps *****@comcast.net
