Lorene Mayberry

    Lorene Mayberry, 67, of Caldwell, died Monday, August 7, 1995, at a Caldwell nursing home.  Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, August 10, 1995, at Dakan Funeral Chapel, Caldwell.  Interment will follow at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens, Caldwell.
    Mrs. Mayberry was born August 27, 1927, at Dora, Missouri, to John and Melinda E. Driskell.  She married Lowell D. Mayberry August 29, 1946, in Dora.  They came to the Wilder area in 1948 and later returned to West Plains, Missouri, in 1951.  They later again returned to Wilder where they farmed. She also worked at the P.E.O. Chapter House in Caldwell for 19 years and at Caldwell Care Center for 10 years.  As her children were growing up, she provided encouragement and helped them with school work and took them to church.  She also encouraged her children to participate in other activities such as 4-H, band, and school functions.  She was involved from the very first meeting in helping get Vallivue School started and was always there to help others and to do what needed to be done.  She never said no when there was work to be done.
    Her grandchildren were the joy of her life. She was always there to take them wherever they needed to go, to school, swimming, ball practice, Girl Scouts and many other activities and she enjoyed having the grandkids over on the weekends.  She was always there for her family no matter how big or small the problem.  She was a caring, loving person to family and friends and made anyone who came over feel welcome in her home.
    Mrs. Mayberry's hobbies included sewing, making crafts, raising flowers and she loved to travel.  Whenever someone would call and ask her to go, she would drop everything and go with them.
    Mrs. Mayberry is survived by a son, Marvin Mayberry of Caldwell; three daughters, Beverly Frailey of Nampa and Susan Lemrick and Carol Lynn Bittick, both of Caldwell; two sisters, Cora Sparks of Dora, Missouri, and Opal Webb of Council, Idaho; a brother, Clifford Driskell of West Plains, Missouri; nine grandchildren and four great-grandchildren; and her special friend of over fifty years, Ruby Arbaugh,
