Lorraine Belle (Morrison) Floyd, 93, of Cody, passed away on April 17, 2021.
She was born on March 15, 1928 in Kemmerer, WY to Richard and Tunie Morrison. She spent her early (5 years) in Sublette and was raised in Frontier by her Grandmother Liisa Jarve and Uncle Aale Jarve. She attended and graduated from Kemmerer High School.
After high school, she worked for the Kemmerer Gazette. She married Leonard Wallace “Wally” Floyd in Kemmerer on February 2, 1947 and shortly after moved to Casper. They had 4 children: Leonard Wallace, Jr., Bruce Alan, Kim Aale, and Lora Lee. They moved to Douglas in 1959 where Wally became the manager of Mountain Bell telephone company and Lorraine found work at the hospital. The family finally settled in Cody in 1968 where Lorraine worked for, and retired from, Husky Oil.
In their spare time, Wally and Lorraine liked to camp. Lorraine had a green thumb and enjoyed tending to her garden and yard.
