  1. I remember Lorrell so well when we lived in Iowa and had all those family reunions with the Wetrosky’s. Once our family moved to Washington we seemed to have lost contact with our Aunts, Uncles and cousins. I wished we could have kept in contact. Uncle Clarence, Aunt Grace and the kids were all so super nice and I have missed all the comradery that we had and think about if often. Lorrell was a super nice person. God’s Blessings

  2. I’m one of Lorrell’s cousins from Washington state. Uncle Clarence & Aunt Grace were my godparents. How sad our families got so spread out over the years & I never got to know him. Being a Wetrosky, he must have been a super guy! My condolences to the family.

  3. I am Lorrells niece (Phil Wetrosky’s daughter), from Sioux City, Iowa. I am very sorry to hear of your loss. My memories are very vague as I was a little girl back on Grandma & Grandpas farm the last time I seen my uncle Lorrell. My thoughts and prayers are with you Gloria and the rest of your family. God Bless
