Churchill, Lorna

April 8, 1928 — Feb. 24, 2014

Lorna Churchill, 85, of Davis, died on Feb. 24, 2014, of natural causes. She was born in New York City on April 8, 1928, to the late Samuel Kraut and Sadie (Selikovitz) Kraut.

Lorna attended Hunter College High School in New York City. As the highest-scoring student on the statewide college entrance exam, Lorna was admitted to the prestigious Hunter College, where she earned a B.A. in creative writing. She then sought a B.S. in mathematics at the University of Washington, where she met her future husband, John “Jack” Churchill. They were married in 1958. The family settled in Davis in 1968.

Lorna was known for her sense of humor and lively personality. She was an avid reader and researcher, and had a great fondness for the English language. She was also a highly skilled writer/editor. In the early 1970s, Lorna wrote a popular daily column for The Davis Enterprise called “Nosing Around.” She also enjoyed travel and visited many foreign countries.

Lorna is survived by her husband, John Churchill, of Davis. She had three children, Amy Edwards of Sacramento, Jason Churchill of Marcola, Ore., and Byron Churchill (deceased); a son-in-law, Clifton Edwards of Sacramento; a daughter-in-law, Stefanie Churchill (deceased); and four grandchildren: Shane and Dylan Edwards of Sacramento, and Angela and Allison Churchill of Marcola, Ore.
