July 11, 1935 – June 28, 2019
Lona Rae Hinman, 83, passed away June 28, 2019 at Longmont United Hospital.
She was born July 11, 1935 in Stromsburg, Nebraska to Roswill and Alta (Mentink) Johnson.
Lona Rae was perfectly suited for nursing with her caring and compassionate nature. She attended nursing school at Nebraska Methodist Hospital and graduated a Registered Nurse.
She met her husband, John Hinman, while both were working at Nebraska Methodist Hospital where their paths crossed in the cafeteria. They were subsequently happily married on August 18, 1957 in Lincoln, NE. After John completed his service in the US Navy, they moved to Longmont in 1962 where they spent many years working together in his medical practice.
Lona Rae loved all those around her and her heart knew no bounds. She cared immensely for this community and enjoyed frequently volunteering and participating in many local organizations to help others. She was a supportive member of Heart of Longmont Methodist Congregation, United Methodist Women, her church circle and tutored for elementary school kids through Kids Hope. She will be missed by all, especially her PEO sisters in Chapter FD.
Lona Rae had a passion for traveling, quilting, playing bunco, participating in her book club, singing with the Wesley Annes, and going out with the Lunch Bunch. She was known to often share her time, a listening ear, and her renowned cinnamon rolls with family and friends.
She cared for and nurtured her family in all endeavors. She was always present and supportive at concerts, sports activities and family events. She found great joy in gathering the family, especially for traditions on Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
She was preceded in death by her parents. Lona Rae is survived by her loving husband of 62 years, John; children: Mark and wife Ann of Longmont, Tim and wife Barb of Temecula, CA and Heather and husband Craig of Woodland Park, CO; grandchildren Michelle, Jenny, Kimmy, Sam, Albert, Harry, Becca, and Thomas; and one great grandchild Kaitlyn.
