May 13, 1943 — March 17, 2021

Lorna Jean Draper Kunnemann, 77 of Imperial, Nebraska, went home to Jesus on March 17th 2021 in Denver, Colorado.
Lorna was born in Imperial, Nebraska, on May 13th, 1943, to Lorin and Velma (Cooper) Draper. Lorna grew up in the Chase County Community along with her brother Marv. She attended grade school at District 66. She went on to attend Chase County Community High School where she was heavily involved in the spirit club as a cheerleader. She graduated in 1961.
Lorna was united in Holy Matrimony to Paul Kunnemann on December 8, 1962, at Zion Evangelical Church in Imperial. This union was blessed with three daughters: Sherri Burke of Imperial, Nebraska, Cyndi and husband John Langenfeld of Centennial, Colorado, and Bobbi and Husband Eric Dittler of Imperial, Nebraska.
Lorna’s most cherished blessings were her Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren.
