Lorraine Lundquist Hulet

March 25, 1928 — April 22, 2023

Lorraine Lundquist Hulet passed away peacefully at age 95 in South Jordan, Utah, on April 22, 2023. Lorraine was born March 25, 1928, in Malad City, ID to John F and Anna Leah House Lundquist and was the oldest of six children. She spent her childhood and teenage years in southern Idaho and northern Utah and graduated from Arimo (ID) High School in 1946. Lorraine graduated from the Southern Idaho College of Education in 1948 and taught math and English at Nampa (ID) Junior High School before enrolling at the University of Idaho, where she met her future husband, Ray Hulet. They were married for time and eternity in the Salt Lake City Utah LDS Temple on November 23, 1949. Six children blessed their union. Lorraine and Ray raised their children in southern Idaho and northern Utah, ultimately establishing deep roots in Cache Valley where they lived nearly 40 years in Smithfield, Utah.

When Lorraine’s children were young, she blessed their lives as a “stay-at-home-mom”. It was usual for women to stay home with the children while their husbands worked. But even by the standards of the era, Lorraine was an exceptional wife and mother. She cared deeply for her family and neighbors. She did this not out of obligation, but because of who she was. She was always the first to offer help. She regularly brought meals to the home of sick neighbors. And she always ensured that every child who crossed her threshold was safe, healthy, and happy.

As a dedicated mother, grandmother and neighbor, many lives have been blessed with her many talents including baking, cooking, canning, sewing, crocheting, and quilting. Memories abound of fresh baked bread with homemade raspberry jam, garden fresh vegetables, tasty casseroles and desserts, being gathered as a family for a home-cooked dinner every evening, warm winter crocheted afghans and personalized flannel pajamas. Throughout her life, Lorraine shared her piano and vocal talents in schools, churches, and her community. She served on the committee charged with writing a history of Smithfield and was integral in publishing the book, Smithfield…as a city on a hill.

Lorraine was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints throughout her life. Next to her maternal love for her family, Christ-like service was of paramount importance to Lorraine. She had an urge for unlimited, selfless service to others. She served in many different teaching, service and leadership capacities with adults, youth, and children. Lorraine and Ray were called to serve an LDS Church mission in 1990 and served 18 months in the Philippines Baguio Mission. In 1996, Lorraine and Ray were called and set apart as ordinance workers in the Logan Utah LDS Temple where they served until released in 2008.

Lorraine and Ray loved spending time outdoors in the local mountains, participating in family reunions and activities, making well-planned road trips across the United States, and venturing to many foreign destinations.

When all is said and done, Lorraine’s 95 years exemplified three themes that filled her heart and that were foundational in her home: “Choose the right”, “Love one another” and “Be Christlike”. And it shall be said, “Well done Lorraine . . . enter into the joy of your Lord.”

Lorraine is survived by her daughter, Diane Daly of McDonald, PA; her five sons: Dennis (Debbie) of Lake Stevens, WA; Gary (Dorinda) of Azle, TX; Rodney (Connie) of Upland, CA; Donald (Kaysee) of Heber City, UT; and Carl (Shanna) of The Woodlands, TX; 32 grandchildren; 70 great-grandchildren; and her three sisters (Beverly, Karen, Sandra), and youngest brother (Ron). Lorraine is preceded in death by her husband, Ray; her parents; her brother (Floyd), her son-in-law Ron Daly, Jr; and two grandsons (Joel Hulet and Michael Hulet).

Funeral service will be held at 11 AM on Saturday, May 6, 2023, in the Smithfield 11th Ward chapel, 79 East 200 South in Smithfield. Friends may visit from 9:30 AM to 10:30 AM Saturday at the church. Interment will be in the Smithfield City Cemetery.
