A celebration of the life of Lorene Workman, 96, of Ozark, is scheduled for 1 p.m. today, Jan. 31, 2018, at Adams Funeral Home in Ozark. Mrs. Workman died Jan. 28 at her home.

She was born June 14, 1921, in Chadwick, the daughter of Henry and Ethel Andrews Hughes.

As a young child, she played music with her brothers and sisters, and later with her own husband and family. 

She married Leslie Ward Workman and was a very talented homemaker. She was a seamstress and enjoyed quilting, and no one could pass up her cooking, especially her delicious chocolate pies. 

Mrs. Workman was baptized at an early age in Swan Creek. She enjoyed being outdoors, gardening and just enjoying nature.

Survivors include her two children, Janice Carol Workman of Clearwater, Florida, and Randy Workman and wife Kathy of Ozark; three grandchildren, Missy Harlin and her husband Chris of Gainesville, and their daughters Abbi and Faith, Jafey Workman and his wife Donna of Ozark and his son Kyle, and Aaron Workman and his wife Jessica of Gainesville, and their daughters, Isabelle and Bonnie Mae.

She was preceded in death by her husband Ward, who died in 1986, and her brothers and sisters.
