Lorna Michelle Schoonover, 66, of Marana, AZ passed away peacefully on September 26th. Lorna, better known as Micky, established roots in and around Marana, a community she loved and never left. In addition to raising four children, she worked in afterschool and day care programs helping to raise others. She loved art, including drawing, sketching, and painting mostly on traditional canvas but preferred unique mediums like vases or fan blades. Her celebrated achievement was a landscape mural for the original Marana Health Center. Everyone who knew Micky experienced her bigger than life energy, ready for her latest joke or riddle. Micky will be dearly missed and never forgotten.
Micky is survived by her children, Charles Schoonover Jr and his spouse Kimberly Schoonover, Michelle Holifield and her spouse Lamont Holifield, Brian Schoonover and his spouse Tiffany Schoonover, and Adam Schoonover. Grandchildren Mitch, Melanie and Emily; predeceased by Brooklyn.
