SUBMITTED PHOTO - Loraine Belle LevanOn March 23, 1929 a lively, generous girl named Loraine Belle Miller came into this world in Sac City, Iowa. On August 4, 2020, a woman – Loraine Belle Miller Levan – passed on from this world with a life lived with kindness, laughter, love and hard work behind her in Sandy, Oregon at age 91.

Loraine grew up in Iowa graduating from Galva High

School in 1946. While still in Iowa she met and married

Paul Levan there in October 1948. The couple moved to

Oregon in the spring of 1953 after purchasing a home

on Bluff Road. When their children were all in school,

Loraine worked at Gresham Community Hospital

as a nurse's aide. She later worked in the kitchen at

Sandy High School until she took a job with Heidi's

Restaurant in Boring. Later in her life, she was a grocery

store product "demo lady". Wherever she worked, she

found friendships and interesting people to talk to.

Loraine and Paul were also both active members of St.

Michael's Catholic Church. Loraine was very social

and enjoyed her conversations with people throughout

her life.

There were some basic principles that guided Loraine

in her life: home, family, generosity, curiosity, good times

and a genuine delight in knowing and interacting with

people. Loraine always had a great sense of humor. She

was known for her total enjoyment for playing all kinds

of games – Bingo, Pinochle, Scrabble, Pokeno, Cards,

Crosswords, Word Finds – and she believed that if you

were going to play, you might as well win! And she did.

Frequently. Her family also knew not to call her when

Wheel of Fortune or Jeopardy were on the air. From

Loraine's perspective, one could never have enough

shoes or jewelry. She was a trendy dresser and found

many a find at Goodwill, one of her favorite haunts.

Loraine loved her family. She was preceded in

death by her husband, Paul, her parents, five sisters

and two brothers. She is survived by her children –

Marsha (Jim), David (Heidi) and Suanne (Terry) – six

grandchildren – Jenny, Jeff, Jessica, Ben, Logan, Amy -

and fourteen great grandchildren. They were a primary

focus in her life.

We will honor and celebrate the life of a very

significant, wonderful, and loved woman with a private

graveside service.

Sandy Funeral Home is handling arrangements.
