Lorna Lopez Memorial Fund

Domestic Violence claimed the life of our friend and caring nurse, Lorna Lopez, RN. We would hear that unique and eccentric giggle down the hall and know that Lorna was laughing. She was so fun, always happy and smiling! And she had many reasons to laugh and smile. Lorna was a beautiful and charismatic woman, passionate and strong. She was the devoted mother of four beautiful children, a tolerant wife, loving sister and daughter. She was an amazing and compassionate nurse and a Christian who strongly believed in God. She was a committed wife and would often say "Well that is the man that God gave me so I have to make the best of things." She always held out hope that one day things would get better. She wanted nothing more than to protect her children and give them security. Her biggest fear was that if she left it would be hard on her children. But as the years went by, Lorna gained strength. She asked him for a divorce because she knew she needed to flee from the abuse.  Yet, even as she asked him for a divorce, her heart was with her husband. She worried more about him than she did about her own safety. Even in her moment of darkness and despair, we know in our hearts that she was thinking of her children.  As a Registered Nurse, she often did that, putting the needs of others before herself.

Lorna Lopez lost her life to Domestic Violence on March 14, 2013. Lorna never allowed her turmoil from home to interfere with her patient care. Although she suffered in silence, she always advocated for her patients. We will no longer hear her sweet laugh, no longer see her beautiful smile and no longer witness her compassionate care of others. But though we cannot change these tragic events of the recent past, we can help to move forward and provide hope for the future. Lorna was her family's main source of financial support. We know above all she wanted her children to be loved and cared for. Please consider helping us to show our support by making a donation. All profits will go towards her children (ages 8-17) for their continued needs and education. Thank you!
