Lorena was born April 10, 1925, in Pierce County, to Henry and Luella (Lau) Ellenberger. She attended District 24 Country School and St. Paul’s Lutheran School to the sixth grade, in Norfolk. The Dirty 30s stopped her education and she did domestic work for a few years. She then went back to the farm to help harvest oats and pick corn while her brothers were away fighting World War II. During the winter months she worked for F.W. Woolworth Company in Norfolk.

Lorena married Ervin Kumm Sept. 1, 1946, at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Norfolk. The couple moved to a farm Northwest of Osmond where they raised their children and farmed. In 1956, they moved northeast of Osmond and farmed there until 1981, when they built their new home in Osmond. Lorena and Ervin traveled throughout the years to Europe, Hawaii, Mexico, and throughout the United States. Lorena was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church, Osmond, Lutheran Women’s Missionary League, taught Sunday school, Quilters Club, and Osmond American Legion Auxiliary Post 326. Lorena enjoyed making quilts, gardening, playing cards, camping, and being with her family of whom she loved very much.

She is survived by four children, a daughter, Irene (Dennis) Hill, Sioux City, Iowa; sons, Warren (Debra) Kumm, Columbus; Gordon (Ruthie) Kumm, Randolph; and LeRoy (Gloria) Kumm, Osmond; daughter-in-law, Arlis Kumm, Randolph; and numerous grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and great-great-grandchildren.
