    Her son Francis was my bishop and stake president. I have now been his bishop and stake president. The example she was to him, her influence of steady consecration came through her son Francis, to me. Although I have heard her testimony only once in person, I have heard it many times through Francis, and now as a priesthood leader have shared this message with others. What a wonderful woman who gave a tremendous legacy to many. I am happy she is able to rest from her labors with God and her family. What a great example...!

    Lorna Call taught me Art for Elementary Teachers in 1970. I used concepts, projects and ideas from that class my whole career. So interesting to learn more about her life, especially about the creation of the library and her friendship with Diego Rivera. One amazing woman and life!

    Queenly, loving and stately are the words that best describe Lorna Call Alder. She remembered me every time she came to visit her family in Vancouver. She had a fantastic memory and told us tales about being in Mexico. We learned of her death while wintering in Arizona, which somehow ties us to her memory. She will be missed. Our warmest hugs are sent to Francis and Darlene and know The Comforter will comfort them at their loss.
