In memory of
Sally Ann Lorentzen
Sally Ann Lorentzen, 77 Devoted wife, mother, and grandmother Sally Ann Lorentzen (nee Olsen), 77, daughter of the late Andreas & Ingrid Olsen, and wife of the late Arne Lorentzen, passed away on April 3rd, 2021. Born on April 20th, 1943, she was a life-long Staten Island resident who attended PS30, and graduated from Port Richmond High School ('60). During high school she focused on learning secretarial skills, which served her well throughout her life. Immediately after graduation she worked for Irving Trust and quickly became a VP secretary; she could type 120 words per minute on a manual typewriter. When her neighbor "Betty" decided to run for office, she jumped in to support her campaign, which became a 25-year career as the chief-of-staff for Assemblywoman Connelly's office on Staten Island, retiring in 2000. An avid bowler, she met her husband Arne at Sunset Lanes in New Springville. They were married in 1967 and celebrated fifty years of marriage. She was a life-long member of Nansen Lodge, Sons of Norway, in Travis, where she served as President, and many other offices. She dedicated a lot of her time and talent to publishing their newsletter, social events and fund raisers, including running a "Norske Boutique" selling traditional Norwegian foods, sweaters and novelty items. She was also a very talented musician, who loved to play piano, organ and accordion, and she shared this talent at Nansen Lodge functions, as well as playing piano for the Zion Lutheran Church Sunday School. Mrs. Lorentzen is survived by three sons: Kenneth and wife Lise, John and wife Jessie, and Erik and wife Laura, six grandchildren: Annelise, Silje, Kaitlyn, Miles, Axel, and Parker, and "grand dogs" Sunny, Ruben and Chloe. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to the Nansen Lodge Scholarship Fund. Friends and family will be received at the Cherubini McInerney Funeral Home on Tuesday April 7th, with the funeral service on Wednesday, April 8th at the same location. Internment following the funeral will be at Oceanview Cemetery, Staten Island. Cherubini McInerney Funeral Home 1289 Forest Ave. Staten Island, N.Y. 10302 (718) 442-9047
