Flora Lorene (Hanshew) Todd was born in Washita, Arkansas, July 12, 1928 and passed peacefully from this earth to her home above on May 17 at the age of 91. 

A long time resident of Corcoran and Hanford, she was most widely known as Lorene. 
She is survived by her brothers, Dean, John and Larry Hanshew; sons, Gary, Everette, Ralph and Michael Todd, daughter Sheila Stumbaugh; 11 grandchildren; numerous great grandchildren; and one great, great grandchild. 
A loving mother and servant to many, she cared deeply for everyone she came to know. 
Jesus Christ was her personal friend whom she adored and spent time in prayer with.  She was a reflection of God’s goodness and hospitality.
Flora was preceded in death by one son, Daniel B. Todd, brother, Ernie Hanshew and sisters, Okema Walls and Naomi Damron, and parents, Quinton and Pearl Hanshew.
From GOD SAW YOU GETTING TIRED with anonymous addition:
God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be,
He put His arms around you and whispered “Come to Me.”
With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you fade away,
although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands at rest,
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
Each time we see your picture, you seem to smile and say,
“Don’t cry I’m in God’s keeping, we’ll meet again someday.” 
Burial arrangements were made by McComb-Wagner Family Funeral Home and Mortuary, 718 W. Railroad Ave., Shelton, WA. 98584.
