Lorraine Chambers Mead

Aug 23, 2021

March 27, 1960 –­ August 17, 2021

Lorraine, our beautiful wife, mother, and grandmother passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Tuesday, August 17, 2021 after a three plus year hard fought battle with lung cancer. Lorraine was born in Ogden, UT to Lionel and Marva Chambers. She is the ninth of eleven children. She married her best friend and eternal companion, Lance Mead on December 9, 1983, in the Salt Lake Temple. They were married for nearly 38 amazing years. They have six children and five grandchildren with one more currently on the way. She grew up in North Ogden, UT and lived in Seattle, WA, South Ogden, and the last 35 years made Hooper, UT home. She was a full-time homemaker, mother, cook, taxi driver to soccer games, peacemaker, and grandmother. She was affectionally known as “Momma Mead” and frequently would state it was time for a “Mom” moment and would give us all much needed guidance and council on many subjects. She did everything with a smile on her face and made sure that all she met felt loved. Service and ministering were her passion and love not only to her family but to all she met. A true disciple of Jesus Christ.

She is survived by her loving husband, Lance Mead, her six children, Tyler (Rebecka) Mead, Darren (Michelle) Mead, Heidi Mead, Kevin (Kailey) Mead, Justin Mead, Chrystal (Miguel) Ibarra, and five grandchildren, Tylin, Maylie, Lincoln, Beckham, and Noah with another one on the way. She is also survived by her 10 siblings: Linda Stoddard, Craig (Rosemary) Chambers, Randy (Karla) Chambers, Gary Chambers, Reid (Shirley) Chambers, Lonnie (Lyman) Barker, Lori (Brad) Reeves, Rod (Chris) Chambers, Kelly (Miriam) Chambers and LeeAnn (Andy) Lippert. Also, her brothers-in-law and sister-in-law: Jeff (Jan) Mead, Greg (Karen) Mead, Gary (Lorraine) Mead, and Leisa (Bob) Bodily, and her dear mother-in-law Charlann Mead.

She was preceded in death by her father and mother, Lionel and Marva Chambers, father-in-law, Maurice Mead, brother-in-law Douglas Stoddard, and her nephew Ryan Chambers and his sweet daughter Evee, as well as many beloved aunts and uncles.

Lorraine was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Her favorite callings included serving in the primary as a teacher, secretary, and president; serving in the young women as an advisor; choir pianist; and ward organist. Her mother Marva helped Lorraine learn how to play the piano and organ. She loved attending the temple with her family and serving others as often as she could. Lorraine gave her all in every calling and made sure everything was as perfect as possible.

Lorraine’s service to others extended to the community. She served in two Hooper PTA presidencies including once as the president. She also served as an election judge for many Hooper City and Civic elections.

She enjoyed spending her younger years playing softball, volleyball, skiing, and basketball. She even was brave enough and went sky diving! Her passion for sports also continued with her husband, family and others playing on Co-Ed softball and volleyball teams and skiing and playing tennis. She loved to spend time outdoors and made the most of life. Once she became a mother, she spent years on years driving her kids to and from various activities, particularly soccer. She always found a way to get multiple kids to different areas, and somehow managed to make it to each kids’ soccer games, even if there were multiple games on a weekend. She always enjoyed camping with family and her siblings’ families. Camping trips to Tony Grove, Sunrise Campground, Southern Utah, and many other places were a frequent spring, summer, and fall time go to activity. She was always up for a good four wheeling trip too. Family, family, and family was her number one priority, and she found joy in serving her family and being a mother and wife.

Lorraine also loved to travel and see the beauty of God’s creations. As a family many lasting memories were created with multiple trips to Disneyland, Disney World, and Hawaii. She was able to go on numerous trips with her husband as he traveled for business to Sacramento, CA; Monterrey, CA; Seattle, WA; Washington DC; Orlando, FL; and Ft. Walton Beach and Destin, FL.

We wish to give thanks to the many doctors, nurses, technicians, and specialists at Huntsman Cancer Institute who provided Lorraine world class professional care with much love and concern that gave us three additional and blessed years to spend with Lorraine. We also wish to thank the wonderful, loving service provided in the last month of Lorraine’s life by the doctor, nurses, CNAs, social worker, and chaplain of Community Nursing Service (CNS) hospice organization. They truly were earthly angels and provided her with much needed comfort, compassion, and care.
