1916-2014 WATERVILLE - Born Lorna Sarah Abbott, in Waterville, the oldest of five children of Everett L. and Jessie S. (Brann) Abbott on July 27, 1916, passed on at age 97 on April 16, 2014, at Woodlands Assisted Living in Waterville. She was barely into her teens when her mother died of cancer at the age of 37 in 1931. Along with her father, Lorna assumed responsibility of bringing up her two younger sisters and two younger brothers. Just two weeks shy of her 18th birthday, she married James F. Ronco Sr. on July 12, 1934. Her son James Jr. was born in 1935 and son Robert in 1936. In 1945, the family moved from Skowhegan to South Gardiner. Jimmy returned from the service in June 1946, and later, in 1947, Gary was born. Lorna and Jimmy divorced in 1952, leaving Lorna the primary provider, being both a hands-on mother and father in raising her three sons. She worked at Health Tex in South Gardiner, later at Hudson Pulp and Paper in Augusta, then MacDonald's Bakery in Gardiner, in addition to selling Avon. In June 1956, she and Elmer Westerlund married and continued living in South Gardiner. Through thrift and hard work, Lorna and Elmer were able to enjoy some fantastic trips - among them, they drove across the United States and Canada to Fairbanks, Alaska, and back in 1967 and again in 1969, with Lorna always doing all the driving. Later, they went to Alaska once again - this time by train. The Canadian Maritime Provinces all along the Atlantic coast were also places they enjoyed. Even while in her 80s, she and Elmer daringly took a balloon ride. Lorna was active in the community of South Gardiner. Among other civic callings, she was a member and past president of the Legion Auxiliary and a children's school teacher at the Congregational Church. She was among the very top of the longest-surviving members of the Abbott clan down through the years. She was a "social butterfly," sincerely caring and staying in touch with her extended family and friends across the U.S. and Canada. In 1983, Lorna and Elmer built a brand-new home in Clinton and sold their home in South Gardiner, after living there 38 years. From Clinton, they moved to Strong on Porter Lake in 1986, and then to Norridgewock in 1988. As Elmer really loved working in lumber mills, they moved when necessary to find employment for him. Following Elmer's death in 2003, Lorna moved into Seton Village in Waterville in 2004. She is survived by her three sons and their spouses, James F. Ronco Jr. and wife Eileen, Robert L. Ronco and wife Mary, and Gary W. Ronco and wife Judy; granddaughters Lisa M. Ronco, Tricia Jamison and Christine Ronco; grandson Jason R. Ronco and partner Richard Perry; stepgranddaughter Janice Pelotte; former daughters-in-law Rosemary Ronco and Diane Jackson; sisters-in-law Sylvia Abbott and Mildred Pickins; great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews. Lorna was predeceased by her grandson Mark A. Ronco, brothers Everett Abbott Jr. and Raymond "Bud" Abbott, and sisters Avis Manson and Bertha Richardson. A memorial service to celebrate Lorna's long, adventurous and active life will be at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 26, 2014, at Vassalboro United Methodist Church on Route 32 in Vassalboro. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to the Waterville Area Humane Society, 100 Webb Road, Waterville, ME 04901. Arrangements under the care and direction of Dan & Scott's Cremation & Funeral Service, 445 Waterville Road, Skowhegan. Read Obituary
