She and Roy married on December 17, 1941 and moved to Abilene, TX where Roy's National Guard unit mobilized for training before deployment in WWII. Lorene moved to Phoenix during the war and lived with her mother and sisters while working at an aircraft plant re-building damaged aircraft from the Pacific theater. After the war, Lorene and Roy started their family while farming in New Mexico.Over the following 30 years, Lorene held several professional positions, including secretary to the Commander of Dyess AFB in Abilene, TX.

After retirement, Lorene and Roy returned to Broken Bow. Longing for home, they settled on Currence Road, an area purchased and homesteaded by family in the 1800's. After returning to Broken Bow, Lorene and Roy mapped out the Broken Bow cemetery, creating maps and signs so families could find gravesites.Their home was always the gathering place for friends and family and there was always a pie or cake baking in the oven. She could produce a banquet with a few items from the refrigerator at the drop of a hat. Lorene and her sweet giving spirit will be missed by many.Visitation will be at Brumley Funeral Home in Broken Bow beginning at 2:00 pm on Saturday, November 11, 2006, with graveside services immediately following at Broken Bow Cemetery. \nTo send flowers to the family or plant a tree in memory of Lorene Eppler Currence, please visit our floral store.
