In 1936, she was confirmed at Nyman Lutheran Church, Nyman, Iowa. Her confirmation verse was Revelation 3:11 (I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have that no one will take away your crown).

Lorene graduated from Essex High School in 1940. She married Wayne Sunderman July 27, 1940. She transferred her church membership from Nyman Lutheran Church to Immanuel Lutheran Church in 1940.
