Mrs. Downey, age 91, of Spring, Texas passed away September 9, 2018 at Unlimited Care Cottages in Spring, Texas.
Lorene was a homemaker, who exemplified two constants: a love for faith and family. She was very involved with her children's activities and volunteering with both school and church activities. She and James were founding members of Trinity Presbyterian Church in Shreveport, Louisiana. After moving to Spring, Texas, they joined Klein United Methodist Church. While she was 91 years old, she still remember Bible verses and every word to the hymns that she sang for years. She will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend by those who knew her.
She is survived by her brother and sister-in-law, Ed and Ella Partridge; sister-in-law, Sarah Downey; son, Jimmy Downey; daughter and son-in-law, Mary Ann and Woody Gardner; daughter and son-in-law, Carol and Rust Perry; son and daughter-in-law, Robert and Jill Downey; ten grandchildren; and twelve great-grandchildren, with one on the way.
She was preceded in death by her husband, James; her parents, Andrew and Abbie Partridge; her brother and sister-in-law, Grover and Margaret; sister and brother-in-law, Mabel and James; sister-in-law, Wilma; and her grandson, Daniel Downey.
