Lorna Claire Hart Shute ’57

Lorna Claire Hart Shute ’57, January 14, 2011, in Saint George, Utah. Lorna studied at Reed for a year and a half, and married R. Wayne Shute in 1959. She later completed a BA in English literature at Brigham Young University. Lorna and her husband were very active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served together in missions to China, Armenia, Singapore, Greece, and Cyprus. In her public obituary, we read: “She was refined and cultured in her taste of music and art; she was a talented teacher; she spent her life with good, uplifting literature. Yet with all her well-known gifts, she was humble and unassuming, and spent her time serving her family and anyone she saw in need.” Survivors include her husband, 9 children, 41 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, and her sister.

Appeared in Reed magazine: June 2011
