Lillie May Boorem


Lillie May Boorem was the third child of Francis and Elizabeth Boorem. Prior to her marriage to Garrison Storm, she taught school (eighth grade) in a one-room schoolhouse in Paradise Valley. Garrison and Lillie had one daughter, Lorna, who also became a teacher. Lorna claimed she was lonely growing up as an only child and always intended to have a big family when she got married. She made good on her promise, giving birth to thirteen children! Unfortunately one of her children was killed while crossing the highway at Swiftwater, Pa. Lorna was a remarkable woman, who returned to teaching school after raising her family.
