Her family says she was in a nursing home in Summerlin when she was diagnosed with the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

Lorenzen's family says they did not expect to have a funeral due to the strict social distancing rules caused by the pandemic, but thanks to Cornerstone Christian Church, their church offered a memorial in the form of a drive-by funeral.

Lorenzen is described as a well loved member of the church.
