Visitation will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at Memorial Funeral Home. A graveside service will follow at 3 p.m., with Mark Kelly officiating. Entombment will follow at Memorial Park Cemetery.

Lorene was born March 27, 1931, in Columbia to the late Dora (Marsh) and Grover Farrar. Lorene, beloved mother and friend of her children, now resides in heaven with the love of her life, her husband, Randall Mueller. They married July 29, 1950, in Columbia.

Lorene taught many children the joys of bowling in junior leagues and bowled in leagues herself, developing many friends. Lorene was inducted into the Columbia Bowling Hall of Fame in January 1975. She also enjoyed her life in the country working in the yard and tending her horses, goats and dogs. She loved and cherished her time spent with family and friends. She was an amazing mom, grandmother and friend. To know her was to love her!

Lorene is survived by her children, Randall Mueller Jr. (Terry) of Springfield, Kim Veley (Chris) of Winter Haven, Florida, and Tammie Morris of Centralia; eight grandchildren; 22 great-grandchildren; six great-great-grandchildren; and sister Norma Cunningham of Kansas City; along with many nieces and nephews.

Lorene was preceded in death by her parents; her loving husband, Randall; sister Betty Golden; and son-in-law Jimmy Morris.

A special thank you to her caregiver, Michele Hall, and her granddaughter Michelle Morris.
