Loraine Vosper

Loraine Gjording Vosper passed away peacefully in her sleep in the early morning on April 4. Born May 1, 1918 in Glenns Ferry, Idaho, Loraine was one of four children, along with her brothers Royal, Jack and Paul. She graduated from the University of Oregon where she met her husband, Robert Gordon Vosper. They married in Glenns Ferry on August 20, 1940, and raised their four children, moving from Berkeley, California to Pacific Palisades, California, and then to Lawrence, Kansas, before finally settling in Westwood Village in Los Angeles. Loraine was an avid reader, cook, seamstress and gardener. She loved to travel and often learned the languages of the countries she planned to visit. She hiked the highest peaks in Yosemite and swam daily at the UCLA pool until she was in her eighties. Loraine is survived by all her children, Ingrid McCarroll, Kathy Katz, Elinor Charles and Stephen Vosper, as well as eight grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
