Born September 5, 1949 in Asuncion, Paraguay, Lorenza was a daughter of Pedro and Modesta (Aguero) Gimenez. She was raised and educated in Paraguay and in her early twenties moved to Chicago. Lorenza started her career as a certified nursing assistant and dental assistant, but transitioned into child care where she proudly worked as a nanny for several Chicago families while raising her own. After moving to Morris and eventually Minooka, Lorenza enjoyed attending the Christian Life Assembly Church in Diamond. Her many interests included listening to music, rooting for the Chicago Cubs, spending time outdoors, enjoying delicious cakes and keeping her house clean, especially the dishes. Lorenza's most cherished times were always with her daughter and grandchildren.

Survivors include her daughter: Natalie Brito of Minooka; two grandchildren: Christian White and Isabella Wike of Minooka; one sister: Yta Lopez of Barcelona, Spain; three nieces: Lily Colman Lopez and Pamela Colman of Barcelona, Spain and Emi Colman of Paraguay, as well as family friend: Brian White of Minooka.
